I really enjoy and appreciate the efficient and (usually) fair roundup of the news, I listen to news from several sources and CNN usually hits all out at least most of the stories that are immediately relevant. I want to give it five stars, BUT Ifeoma Dike hosts so many of the episodes and she...Read full review »

I am impressed by app’s weekday 5 Things, and weekend 5 Good Things and One Thing programs. 5 Things’ editorial stance is balanced, and the show is delivered with an optimistic tone. On Saturdays, 5 Good Things provides a welcome break from the challenges and threats in the news. And on Sundays,...Read full review »

I listen to this podcast every morning driving to work. It keeps me entertained and the news coverage is awesome. I also like the new five good things on Saturdays.

“Don’t forget, we’re changing times…” how can we? You’ve only said it after every episode for the last 3 weeks

I do not understand some people’s criticism of Ifeoma Dike. She’s fine. Better than fine; she’s a very good news presenter.

I love the quality but I can’t see the subtitles while I can see on websites.

Ifeoma’s voice is lovely but as other reviewers have noted, her reading needs serious improvement. She places pauses and inflections in odd places and the sentences don’t flow well at all. It’s so distracting that I’m finally unfollowing this show. It’s a shame.

More trash from the Commie “News” Network. If I could you’d rate in the negative.👎🏻

I love this podcast, but I find myself wanting to skip every episode hosted by Ifeoma Dike. Her copy reading is not up to par with a show that is this polished. I wish CNN would find someone else to read for her or that she would get more training to help her sound more professional.
ally1970 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/11/23
I had stopped listening to 5 Things here and elsewhere because inserting ads part way through a podcast that is LESS THAN FIVE MINUTES long is just insulting and abusive. To be clear, I am fine with ads to support a program, but only within reason. INTERRUPTING such a short one is the epitome...Read full review »

In this time of my life, I’m approaching 70 and I’m legally blind, I, don’t care to be saturated with the news. To be overwhelmed by it. To be given too much information, and not being able to see limits what I could glean from a television screen. I trust CNN. I like the encapsulation. In less...Read full review »

Great balanced important report about the uninformed trying to and succeeding to ban books.
Mildred Honey via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/22/23
I’ve listened to this podcast for a while. It is decent but my main issue is the podcast will pick one ad and replay it for every episode on repeat for weeks on end. With several episodes it gets mind numbingly annoying hearing the “Doctor Downtime” commercial.

You are stenographers for “high ranking officials” in the IDF.
Utred son of Utred via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/12/23
They give outstanding daily updates several important times daily. They go in deep on Sunday mornings on important subjects. And they go into extra detail when it is necessary. I give them a 10 plus rating. Add them to your library. Casey

I’m hoping to catch the attention of someone in production of this podcast. Great news coverage but it’s hard to listen to because the background music is annoying. The synthetic, repetitive, pulsating sound is distracting from listening to the newscaster and actually makes me feel anxious. I’m...Read full review »

I will no longer be listening to CNN. Your biased coverage of President Biden has hit an all time low. Why not report and keep count of every public official or past President who makes false claims? Seriously? Why not report on the position accomplishments of the Biden administration. Desperate...Read full review »

I LOVE THIS SHOW!!🤠
RedriderC via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/06/23
Great podcast with good information, but if I have to listen to The Assignment’s advertisement in every single episode (I listen to a few in a row to catch up) it makes me want to scream.
Ahol91 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/06/23
Jo Beck cheerful start to my day is the reason I listen. If I could bottle her auditory sunshine I could throw out my anti-depressants. Thank you for your cheerfulness when the news is less than. It truly brightens my day

Its unnecessary

Given everything happening in the world, how can the Trump indictment and climate change stories be in the “top 5 things you need to know” every freaking day!?!? CNN used to be objective news, but today it is clearly pushing a left wing agenda. As a moderate, I find it really annoying.
Jdfbidomanx via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/16/23
Great news format. Short and straight to the point. I wish I could have more in other regions of the world.

That poor woman needs to learn how to speak! And the ANGI ads are beyond annoying!

I start my day with 5 things! My go to for succinct, simple and trustworthy news. I end my hour commute day with this podcast as well! Reliable and informative!

I cannot support an entity that provides an avenue with which a criminal espouses anti-democratic and anti-American principles. I will no longer subscribe to any CNN vehicle, and will encourage the same for all family members, extended family members and all friends.
Ghibbob via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/14/23
This podcast was moderately useful summary but after that horror of a trump town hall - & the shameless summary offered here today (May 11) I can NOT continue listening/supporting this corporation’s uncritical collaboration with the US’s chief purveyor of lies
Suzie Qeue via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/11/23
shame, Shame, SHAME on cnn for giving that stupid violent liar trump a sole platform to spew more and more lies and continue to defame ms. carroll. U are done. U have lost all credibility in the world of journalism. U are the new Fox network.

With only 4 1/2 minutes they should avoid repeating the same story several updates in a row. Also the extra info they keep repeating is annoying such as telling us the “payments to a porn star are not against the law”. I probably heard that 10 times. Also, they need to make sure their hosts...Read full review »

My only suggestion is to eliminate the background “music”. It’s unnecessary and distracting
