  • No beef with the Brief

    I’ve been listening to The Briefing since COVID and (babies!). It’s kept me informed and entertained on many energy-sapping pram walks … love the fast news and the deep-dive topics and, most of all, the great team behind it all.

  • Lost my love with the switch

    Been a great source of morning news and further insights, but since flipping the news headlines to after the interview… I don’t always want to listen to the interviews conducted early on. I liked have the choice of getting my news fix and then staying on to listen if I wanted, not fast forwarding to find the news later on. Unfortunately this has caused me to switch podcasts to get my morning news fix. Sorry guys. Good luck with the new format.

  • Don’t like the new format

    Love the show, but am missing the old format. I am a daily listener who prioritises the headlines over the deep dive as not all topics interest me
