Great news in short amount of time

I really enjoyed this podcast. It daily news in a short amount of time. Now, I prefer to listen than watching television news that played over the same old one over and over again just by different commentators. Please bring back the old podcast music. The new one feels so different and doesn’t have an upbeat to it. Too funky and weird.

Changed after election results

I am disappointed to see significant change in this podcast after election results were announced. I thought at least WSJ was neutral to the politics but I guess not. I’m unsubscribing.

Glad WSJ makes this available. Along with NPR, this is one of my AM go to podcasts for news.
