Opinion is varied in these reviews, but I really like being able to choose segments to listen to. That way I can listen to local news and avoid KUOW’s ultra liberal echo chamber as best as possible. I get it, I’m liberal too, but a huge chunk of KUOW programming just wallowing in identity politics or bemoaning national politics. Stick to local news where you can add value!

I enjoy the long shows on the Record, but do not like to weed through the short shows that are most often included in the long show. Because of this I find my listening is less and less as my listening time is limited. Thanks
