TPWNYC ,

Great start to my weekday (and now Saturday!)

There are several indispensable morning news podcasts I turn to. Up First is always Up First. Love the format, the broadcasters and content. Always a little smarter having listened to the daily broadcast. So happy to have a Saturday edition to wake up to.
