Great informative podcast

Major news headlines

Good selection of news stories; poor hosts

Up First selects 2-4 key stories to help start your day. Reporting is solid. Would be better if hosts would tone down their histrionics and hype, especially Inskeep and Rachel Martin. Both repeat the obvious and consistently try to put words in the reporters mouth. Finally gave up and now listen to NYT “The Daily”. So much better reporting and host

Love that I can listen to this podcast and mostly skip all the other longer form stuff, while still feeling informed. ✅
