Update: I just wanted to thank NPR for reminding me how incredibly biased they are. Normally I try to remember that I need to take everything they say with a grain of salt, but I also expect some journalistic honesty from them. Well, coverage of the Covington High School Debacle, which I happened to have followed more closely than most news stories, reminded me of how aggressively all reporting here is filtered though a specific narrative. That’s fine, as long as I remember that anything they say is going to be skewed badly. I just hope that other listeners don’t think they’re getting objective news because if you do, this podcast will create a false picture of the world around you. Also, as a note about editorials: my original review says that this podcast only obliquely editorializes. This is less and less true as time goes on. Sad. Original Review: So, I enjoy this podcast well enough. The reason I can’t give it five stars is that I try to listen to a very conservative news podcast and a very liberal one every day, and this one is the one that I generally use for my liberal news podcast. It should not be that way. I should not have the sense that when listening to NPR I am listening to something aggressively liberal. To the best of my understanding, the point of this podcast is to give me a quick snapshot in the morning of what is going on in the news, not to editorialize. For the most part, the news people in this podcast refrain from using words to editorialize, but it is amazing what you can do with inflection and pauses. And those inflections and pauses tell the listener very clearly that the commentators on this show think that our current president is a stark raving idiot. I did not vote for President Trump, and I don’t especially care for most of what he does, but to so clearly get that sense from the news, from national public radio, that’s really not great, not professional.

Quick news updates that makes a for a nice way to start the day. Mainly just hits major points of headlines without a bombardment of information.

This podcast is the way I start my day. I appreciate the concise approach the team uses, and yet they give me enough depth in each story to make it very interesting.

Reliable source of balanced, fact-based news. Concise but still managing to go well beneath the surface. I sometime get up early just so this will play on the NPR One app.

Even though I don’t live in the States, listening to the show is part of my morning routine. Keep up the good work!

A good overview for the news you’ll encounter the rest of the day, and a useful, quick, catch-up for West-coasters starting 3 hours behind.

Honestly, I think these guys do a great job. Not understanding of the negative reviews. This is a short and sweet consolidated news reel that is perfect for listening to while getting ready in the morning. I love the podcast format in that there is a defined beginning and end. I’ve never been a fan of tuning into the radio and waiting for news to pop up while other stories repeat themselves. I donate to NPR in support of this show alone. I’m also a subscriber of NYT the daily which is great too, but serves a different purpose. The combination of both shows in the morning makes me feel prepared for the day.

This Aussie listener relies on Up First for a quick take on what is going on in the US each day. Balanced and well researched it’s always a pleasure to listen to this team.

I live in Sydney and listen every day to this podcast. Best 15 mins summary of US and some world news that there is. A similar podcast devoted to world news would be fantastic. One suggestion - please dont introduce the female co-presenter as "And she is Rachel Martin ..." Please say "And this is .." or "And my co-host is ..." It sounds such a put down otherwise.

I listen to both Up First and The Daily from the NY Times and while The Daily tends to give an in depth view into a topic in American politics, Up First gives a more general overview of the news. It includes US news but also world news including the UK the Middle East. An excellent way to keep up to date with what's going on in the world. GB
