Succinct. And puts me in the know immediately

Blaring PT Barnum, headache producing type noise, masquerading as music, assault the ears before one bit of news. Then, CNN blasts you with putative news that sounds like in was filtered first through game show stupidity. I’ll take NEWS-NPR, and NEWS-BBC podcasts over this “dog & pony show”...Read full review »

why don’t u do a story or have a discussion about why boris johnson eats birthday cake and a few other non big deal things and he gets ousted. compare that to trump having high security level docs, nuclear secret docs, etc. (he knew he had them because trump said they are his and he can keep...Read full review »

Music used to be OK. Now it is beyond irritating. Horrid! Seems like I am not the only person who hates the music. With all due respect, could you show some respect!

Now that CNN has taken a turn and fired Brian Stelter and John Woodward, both stellar journalists telling the truth with integrity, I am going elsewhere for my news. You cannot both sides things like democracy. The right wing already has a huge market share of the news so it’s sad to see you want...Read full review »

I really enjoyed Friday’s episode all about Trump and the affidavit. I wish there was more like that because it broke it down very clearly for me.

CNN’s 5 things is one of the best ways to catch up without being glued to Televisions and other medium. I have this podcast play automatically while waking up.

Awful monotonic voice. It’s like listening to a robot. I love the idea of a short concise update and after listening to many much longer CNN podcasts I decided to try this. But I can’t even listen for the entire short time because she speaks so terribly! Going back to your longer podcasts where...Read full review »

wouldn’t expect anything less from CNN

Every day I begin my morning routine by playing CNN 5 Things Podcast. I can’t live without it. It’s the perfect bite sized delivery of news I need to stay current regarding world affairs. Especially on health matters, politics and foreign conflicts. All the hosts are professional. ...Read full review »

Love your concise updates but stop repeating stories, especially Trump news.

Mass media are going berserk lookin for another means of weaponization of the Fake news

While grieving over the news of the discontinuation of my beloved Choco Taco I had to hear your announcer refer to it as the Choke-O Taco. It’s almost like she’s never even heard of the Choco Taco, your vetting process is clearly lacking.

Great podcast all around. I’ve been worried about the monkey pox disease but I feel like I always know what’s going on with it now through cnn 5 things. I can also always count on cnn for interesting stories!

Five things is rated so low! It’s one of my daily/weekly mist listens. Between this and Can We Please Talk? (which does weekly news topic breakdowns with guests across media, government, legal & more), I feel better informed as a functioning member of society.
Starksfor3 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/27/22
Really good podcast and straight to the point. I discovered this, while waiting for an airplane 2 years ago and I’ve sort listened every day since. Allthe hosts are pretty good and I very much liked the new host last week too. Sometimes stories feel repetitive of what is on TV but if you do‘nt...Read full review »
mpad10 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/20/22
I get the feeling from these updates that someone said, “Hey, interns…here’s something you can do!” How does the reporter not know the difference between “further” and “farther”? (“Further south…?) Uncomplicated names are butchered, and voice inflection borders on Valley Girl. If it’s meant to...Read full review »

Love the quick bites throughout day; especially love Sunday’s extended show. No drama and the news I need.
politicsperson via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/22/22
Love this podcast. There are other “briefings” or X top stories podcasts but this one is clear, concise and provides the key information I should know in a brief amount of time which sometimes is all I have, not 15 minutes or even 10, and certainly not 50. Love it. Love the primary hosts voice...Read full review »

A great way to start the day and having an update on the way home or early evening- maybe… but all of these incessant updates throughout the day is annoying - same news , same commercials and same old same old. I might as well just keep CNN streaming itself. NPR has it right - do the update early...Read full review »

Usually a decent news update podcast with a bit a left leaning tilt especially on topic choices, but today was ridiculous. Any more of a bias to the left and the host would fall from his chair. Pure objectivity is impossible, but it is something you should strive for if you claim to be an...Read full review »

Short but understandable!!!
wahbshjshdhshsucdgdyg via Apple Podcasts · Japan · 05/22/22
Love the multiple updates throughout the day. You can choose to listen, or not. The repetitive commercials are a little annoying, as is the late night host.that.cannot.read.a.sentence. Seriously! Difficult to listen as her pauses and sentences are all wrong. Fez and Chris are fantastic.

Well edited and delivered content.
4334alton via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/16/22
Very intrusive, repetitive and loud “Stanley” advertising. This is disrespect to the users and a clear lack of professionalism of managers. I will have to unsubscribe from the podcast because of it.
вапраприа via Apple Podcasts · Lithuania · 05/14/22
There is no need to have an ad for 5 minute show.
Brad9013 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/10/22
News short and to the point! Yes, we’ve heard about CNN+ because you have been mentioning it, EVERY PODCAST, since CNN+ has been released. Enough, please!
TheDDingeldein via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/16/22
I'm a left leaning woman, but this podcast tends to be very biased towards the left, especially when it comes to trans-related subjects. CNN reported on a trans-related bill protecting woman's sports, but then says there's no correlation between men having a biological advantage over...Read full review »

I love keeping up to date on the latest news. 2 episodes would be enough. It clogs up my playlist with too many episodes. I’ll see what happens but NPR does one briefing a day and it’s basically the same stories.
Nimrodlover via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/08/22
In a time where it’s really easy to get overwhelmed by watching the news on tv, this podcast has become my new favorite way to keep up to date with what Is going in the world without getting caught up in the emotional sensationalization of televised news reports. I really appreciate the work this...Read full review »

My favorite news podcast right now. I just tell Alexa to play it when I get home from work and it’s the perfect length and very informative.

So very informative. P.S. I hope and pray everyone over in Ukraine is doing well, and to those who aren’t, I’m sorry what this world has come to, especially when it results in losing one of your loved ones.
