  • Too many ads

    I love listening to Phil Matier and his incisive analysis of San Francisco politics. Miss him in SF Chronicle. This program is great and an adequate substitution for what’s missing in the print media.

  • Content good - too many commercials

    Content is good but the commercials before and after are longer than actual content and it repeats same ads. Probably would listen if on ad but not 4 to 6- 30 second ads for 3 minutes of content. Fast forward

  • Too many ads

    I love listening to Phil Matier and his incisive analysis of San Francisco politics. Miss him in SF Chronicle. This program is great and an adequate substitution for what’s missing in the print media. I think the pod cast right now is just trying to cram too many ads into it, knowing this is a popular program. But too many ads is a turn-off.
