Keep the pre podcast repartee

I enjoy hearing something humorous before they dive into the day’s typically insane news.

Stop boring fake cute conversation at start of show

I second the motion to stop Rachel and David’s boring fake cute interactions at the start of the show. Please.

In general, this news show is a round up of lite news where one of the presenters gives reaction comments like, “oh my!” Reporting a bit weak. Particularly disappointed with ‘3 parent baby story,’ heard no mention of the fact that it was about mitochondrial DNA. I feel it’s misleading, they cut corners.

Great podcast

I really have come to like and rely on this podcast for daily news. I’d recommend “the Daily” for a longer take but it’s from NY Times so understand the view it’s coming from. I don’t know why people are complaining about the minute or so of “banter” between the hosts. They’re human - they can talk to each other for a minute without everyone freaking out. Chill people.
