This news source is why I follow the news.

I love that the bias in the news is acknowledged and the stories are widespread. The occasional commentary in this podcast is entertaining and engaging. With AI pulling from 5,000 articles, I finally feel like I can listen to the news with the most objectivity currently possible.

Great compacted reports-but the reporting is definitely not "unbiased"

Coming from someone who is open-minded and relatively middle of the road, I laugh when the "unbiased" word is thrown in during the intro. I love the straight-on reporting, and the different viewpoints. Those are what we need to hear, from the various sources, to help us choose our own sources for more info, and to be aware of various spins. The newsreaders, however, cannot help themselves from showing their liberal sides. It's frustrating to want to hear all sides, and to listen to various views-but when opinion is pushed in there, when it's promised to be somewhat neutral, I can't help but be totally turned off. More media lying to push their agenda instead of actually just informing, much less uniting. Disappointing.

Good but needs improvement

I like the idea of this podcast but the execution needs a bit of work. I find the banter annoying and I don’t understand the repetition when a mistake is made. Please remove the banter. And if a word is fumbled, just correct the word instead of repeating the entire sentence until it’s correct. It sounds odd.
