Enjoyable Because It's Brief and Very Informative

If you can do a great job delivering 3-4 chunks of news every day in less than 5 minutes, that proves the brevity and yet the power of this podcast. I also think Julia Hatmaker is the happiest sounding podcaster of any I listen to. Keep up the great work.

Bite-Size News from a Reliable Journalist!

This podcast is an awesome way to get local news fast. I literally listen to it each morning as I brush my teeth and run a comb through my hair and by the time I’m done with that, I’ve had my fill of great news stories. Julia Hatmaker does an excellent job of bringing out the highlights in the news, offering uplifting stories alongside the more dreary news, and doing all of this with a lot of integrity. Throughout the podcast, you can hear how getting each story right, and presenting it in a fair, unbiased way is important to her. There is so much value to having access to this kind of reliable journalism! Highly recommend!!
