Important news on the go

It's great to be able to digest articles on the go thanks to this service. The half-dozen vocies that read me the latest WIRED articles have become SO familiar to me, I often hear their voices when I'm reading articles on my tablet!

Thanks for everything you read, you guys.

New narrator please

tl;dr: Great info, bad narrator.

I learn a lot from listening to this pod. Sadly the narrator’s voice is so abrasive and robotic. Sounds like a bot from 10 years ago. Hard to listen to. I may unsub soon because it’s too painful. Can we please get Kai Ryssdal over here?
