  • The new intro music is horrible

    Multi-year listener here with one critique, the new intro music is really horrible. I start my day with What’s News and since the new intro music was added I find myself listening to new episodes less and less. What an affect a 5 second intro can have on the retention of its listeners… please change it back.

  • Sound off

    Love the content but the audio between the content and ads is not level. Great if you don’t care about the ads but still annoying as a listener.

    The What’s News in Markets commentary is just not funny. Get a better writer or just stick to the facts and skip the jokes.
