The News Podcast For When You Can No Longer Handle News Podcasts

There are some weeks when I think I cannot bear to be in the know any longer, but the dynamic duo Gideon and Akilah have an infectious positivity that makes their podcast not only a trusted, short-and-sweet news recap but also a gosh darn jolly way to start my day!! 10/10 would recommend to all!!

What a way to start your day!

This is a fantastic pod—it’s informative, the perfect amount of time for a news update, and Akilah and Gideon are amazing! They make listening to the news enjoyable, which isn’t easy, and they always make me laugh which is the real start I need to my day.

Replace Akilah & I’ll reconsider

I’m really disappointed by this podcast. I’ve been a huge Crooked Media fan from the start, subscribing to and being impressed by so many of their podcasts. What A Day, however, really misses the mark for me. I love the idea of a daily Crooked podcast, and I think Gideon does a great job discussing the news. But Akilah laughs too much at her own jokes and refuses to consider any perspective other than her own. I’ll stick to Pod Save America, Lovett or Leave It, Hysteria, Keep It, etc.
