Less Is Not More

Though the production values were good, the overall NPR News podcast was paltry. It was less than expected and needed. Especially in these dynamic times when more facts, context, and truly substantive information is critical. COME ON! At least 30 minutes of hard news --- no fluff or filler.

Too short!

As expected, excellent core coverage but much too short a podcast to properly cover national & international news. Hence, the rating.
