I appreciate NPR’s diligence in presenting the multifaceted nature of a news story. It allows the listener to form their own view. I am definitely on the left side of spectrum but I need to understand what right is embracing so I can intelligently address it. Thank you NPR WNPR is my station....Read full review »

I think the other reviewer meant left leaning.

I love this podcast, it is updated hourly and provides a succinct summary of the latest news. Thank you, NPR!
LaurelDCO via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/02/24
They don’t seem to actually do fact checks. Only parrots the talking points they are given thus providing the audience a biased understanding of the subject at hand. For example: The UN Resolution calling for a ceasefire is BINDING. Stating that it is ‘non-binding’ per the Biden administration...Read full review »

Qualitative content + as a French, the transcript makes it really easy to understand English

If not for the right leaning bias in their stories, I’d give it 5 stars. Do better NPR!

I rely on the global team of excellent journalists. Consistent, skilled and balanced.

The presumptive undertone is humorous, as if we should assume that everyone agrees with the progressive sociopath-political vision or they’re somehow less enlightened. We don’t have to be a monolith to exist together.

This used to just be a quick news update, now it’s a full minute of ads before it starts.

It would be 5 stars for the sense that most of the stories and commentary tends to have a left-leaning bias as an undercurrent.

I have always wanted regular world news updates in podcast form. I’m in the UK, so I wish you didn’t talk about sports, but the news is very welcome, and it seems balanced and intelligent.

UN should order Hamas to quit hiding behind civilians and surrender
Che Block via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/27/24
Every time you report that IDF soldiers are dead it should be required to repeat the Palestinian CIVILIAN MOSTLY WOMEN AND CHILDREN death toll. This “balanced” reporting is severely askew.
Badkatdad via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/23/24
It would be five stars if there was more episodes, like a weekly summary.
FlyingCoco24 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/12/24
I start my day with NPR. It’s a great way to get a quick overview on what’s going on in the world.

01-02-24 - The only thing available to me since 12-31-23 is the Trailer. I would appreciate someone looking into this matter. Thank you. 08-17-21 - There has been no improvement with the issues encountered with this app. The latest episode available today is 07-05-21, 4pm. 06-06-21 - This...Read full review »

It’s really nice to get a 5 minute NPR update, cause I often zone out during long news stuff
HellNoiWillNotTryAgain via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/26/23
Too many ads
Coolair123 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/24/23
NPR is allegedly one of the best and most unbiased sources for what is allegedly being called news. Their alleged work is allegedly reliable and informative. They also allegedly like to describe things as “allegedly” even when we all darn well saw the event happen. There’s allegedly a difference...Read full review »

Excellent App....I like this 5 minute news app. Keeps me up to date on the top news items across the U S and world. Also, keeps me up to-date and entertained on what “The Loose Cannon” is up to and his latest ‘tweets’
Bryan5555 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 12/17/23
Just one episode at a time? So if I don’t listen to them immediately, they’re gone? What kind of service is THAT? I’m missed yesterday episode, NOPE, can’t listen to it now…..

Siri insists on playing week old news now podcast
rcpmac via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/13/23
Now it is all stopped up on one episode December 7.
fitbitrunner via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/13/23
When I say “Play me the news” to Siri, it will only play the December 7th edition of the podcast, and there’s no way for me to mark it as played or even to delete that episode because the NPR channel doesn’t list it as an episode anymore. I’ve tried restarting my phone, unfollowing/refollowing...Read full review »

Great news updates—it’s nice to be able to just get a quick update and it’s helpful that they delete all but the newest update so it doesn’t spam my feed with 24 episodes a day!
jackrad via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/06/23
The hourly news was spamming my feed over the weekend. Now I’m getting no updates at all. The last hourly news was more than 8 hours ago. The updating of your hourly news updates has always been a bit glitchy in that sometimes the most recent news on my feed is several hours old, but in the past...Read full review »

It’s a resource for an aspect of the news. Selective coverage seems to be the norm. Best practice would be to cross reference with other sources to avoid blind spots.
greandeath25 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/04/23
A short snippet of news . Straight to the point. Personally , I hear no ads and I pay no monthly so what is everyone complaining about ? Boy, people always find someone that’s wrong it’s incredible.
renee gold via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/28/23
Great! Informative! Need to only keep most recent episode
HairManChu via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/25/23
I pay my dues automatically each month. Paying for in-depth news is a pleasure but not when news shut off after every segment. KERA’s own podcast is where I used to get live or stream news but annoying to listen now when each segment shuts off. I then went to Apple Podcast and it’s the same...Read full review »

The quality of reporting, the consistency, and level of information has always been excellent. Highly recommended and kudos to NPR for delivering great episodes. Not a day goes by without it.
Gabearts305 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/19/23
I can only see one episode? But nice short and sweet anyone who thinks otherwise needs to get a life
So incredibly beautiful shows via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/16/23
You have a tendency to delete episodes within an hour or so of airing that may be contextually taken as negative to the left. I am a democrat and tired of “left-leaning” media choosing what they tell their viewers based on what may pander to their target audience. Give consumers all the...Read full review »

they often wait more than 2 hours before updating the feed. so the news is old…

To anyone being a crybaby about the ads how do you think you’re able to listen for free? Do you think content and talent and reporting comes from the Current Events Fairy? Also are you aware what the buttons to the left and right of Play are for? Skip the ads firstly next get a life
bluemeanieface via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/09/23
1 minute of ads in 5 minute podcast. Half to promote other NPR podcasts. I use Amazon now. No ads.
JDsfCA via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/08/23
I love how this is just the latest episode so I know what is happening right now. I love that it’s just the headlines so I can choose what to go find out about later without losing my attention. Glad I found this! It’s a nice addition to “up first” in the morning.
angenettepc via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/06/23
Easy to listen to. Great snippet of what is happening now. Thanks!
Smatarazzo via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/02/23
Reported fairly withOUT bias. My go-to for news coverage. I don't mind the ads because NPR has to pay bills like the rest of us. No such thing as a free lunch, people!Read full review »
