Love it but...

I really like up first. It’s a great way to get a quick update of anything big going on in the world. I read news articles too but it’s nice to get a few stories that aren’t algorithmically determined for my preference, so I’m not missing out. Many of the other news podcasts were just so long, up first is just the right length. It allows me to research anything I want more info on and optionally find that in depth coverage. My issue with up first are all the technology issues that have been occurring for probably a good year now. I was optimistic and kept waiting it out but I finally had to unsubscribe. I hated not only having 10 episodes of planet money download that I didn’t want, but any episodes of up first that I hadn’t listened to yet deleted and gone, unable to re-download. I kept having to go back and delete all the planet money episodes too. And it was too often to not be frustrating. I ended up unsubscribing and just download manually now. I understand switching servers can cause issues, but the issues should have been worked out already. If they could get that side of things straightened out then I would give it 5 stars.
