For a bite sized take on things

By MainJeffers - Apr 29 2020
Read more
I dislike this podcast for the same reason I dislike Axios generally. It’s simplistic, bite-sized, bullet-point treatment of news topics is like the TEDtalks version of things (which I equally despise). I prefer long form journalism, and deeper dives into complex new stories, like you get from the Guardian’s, the BBC’s, and the New York Times’ podcasts. Save your bullet points for a presentation in a college seminar classroom. Otherwise, the production qualities and technical elements of the audio are superb.

Great way to start your day
