I can’t be messing with my phone to start or stop segments! At least, restore a full show option please! Larry Telles Indianola

I can no longer listen

By Gwynn - Apr 17 2020

This used to be my favorite, must listen podcast, but I no longer can because of the broken up, segment format. I usually listen to podcasts in environments where I cannot be constantly fiddling with my phone, like driving, and rely on long podcasts that I don’t have to touch for forty-five minutes to an hour or longer. Once or twice it seems like both the segments and the full episode were posted, which was ok though it left me with a lot of deleting to do. Since this new format began I don’t think I’ve listened to the show more than two or three times. Bad, bad decision KUOW. I hope you reverse course on this or you can count me as a listener lost.
