Aliquot of morning news

This has been perfect for my mornings, highly recommend.

Simple Round-Up of “Important” Stories.

I love listening to Up First as it gives me a pretty good overview of what’s going on in the world..... sort of.
I do wish they put their political, anti-Trump-focused “news” stories on their special reports instead. I just spent 15 minutes listening to their Monday morning podcast, which was nothing but the Mueller report. Yeah, that stuff is neat and all..... but I highly doubt that is the ONLY thing that happened over the weekend, guys. Now I’m going to have to go listen to other podcasts to tell me some real news. BOO!

Edit: I listen to this every day. It is NOT news. It is a political podcast. It is 75% about politics.
