I'm a Daily Skimm reader, happily now listening in to the podcast. Love that you jump right into the "most complicated story of the day" right away. I enjoy the normal host -- please say your name!! The one that sounds like Anna Kendrick. Very enjoyable to listen to. Thanks so much!Read full review »

I love your podcast very much! Just want to tell you that it is correct to tell Kyiv, not Kiev; what I heard in your episode from November 21st!

I’ve been loving the variety in hosts lately. You’ve been doing a great job at balancing the impeachment hearings with other important global news. Thank you for all you do, and welcome, new host! You’re great!

Some of the content is being presented as “facts” when they really aren’t! The idea is great! I like getting a rundown on the things happened that day, but how much I could trust the content is another story. Take it with a grain of salt...

No complaints, love this podcast, I listen everyday. The host the last two days... I'm sure she's a wonderful person, but sounds like she's reading an essay. More conversational tone with vocal variety would be a big improvement. Love you guys!Read full review »

I love the skimm podcast and listen every day. I just admit I’m not a fan of the new host’s cadence and energy level. I’m tired at the end of a long day of work and an energetic host is important to keeping me engaged and interested.

I’ve listened to the podcast since The Skimm first debuted it, and I’m also a happy subscriber since 2014. I love the content and the stories they choose to showcase in the podcast. However, giving 3 stars because they change the podcast “host/anchor” way too often and it’s distracting. It really...Read full review »

Today’s host is extremely robotic, with no emotion at all, sorry . I like the other host much better. It makes all the difference. This rating is just for this episode.

I love TheSkimm. This news outlet keeps me informed,without being overwhelming. I feel like at the end of the podcast, I’m knowledgeable about a topic. It’s just enough information - not overloading. Also, I appreciate them not being too polarized.

Started listening on my commute home months ago and really enjoy the podcast. Will admit I’m hoping the person who recently started is only temporary...person previously doing the podcast much better.

Love the easy way things are explained and very impressed by the bipartisan views!
Hiefoeodfhdisoddjrfggsoe via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/02/19
I literally can not get out of bed until I read the Skimm and I look forward to the podcast every evening. I love balance of common sense news and humor. I’m a sucker for a laugh. I’ve been singing “Friday I’m in Love” all week!

A wonderful current news synopsis, giving history and context to one item every episode. Well done and informative!
Mikerstamp via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/29/19
Short and to the point- keeps me informed! This is a great compliment to the newsletter.

No news outlet (or person or group) can fully eradicate bias, but this podcast does a pretty good job.
Crow9000 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/24/19
I absolutely love this podcast and listen to each and every one of them. I find it “entertaining” that some of the reviewer are so hell bent and surprised there is a bias to this podcast. The only bias I see is one of true and information. We are in very scary times with Trump shredding the...Read full review »

Love to consume news in a simple format but the narrator is trying too hard to make this upbeat. Deadline for Brexit should not be compared to the time you have to get a Halloween costume. I would also steer away from calling the main story the ‘most complicated’.
CHFlorC via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/19/19
I love this podcast. Very short and to the point, but very informative. I even enjoy the little humor thrown it. The only reason I’m giving it a four star instead of a five star is because they throw their opinions in on the matter. I believe news should be just that, news.
richardsons1 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/15/19
I listen to almost every episode. Thank you! (Another vote for a Canadian version or more Canadian content.)
Johsar.5 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 10/11/19
I subscribed to this podcast because it was a quick way to catch up on the news. I just wish they’d present the news without adding opinions and let people make their own judgements.
darcygirl91 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/08/19
Enjoy the quick format, but continue to hear biased undertones rooted in left wing propaganda
Leigh Pett via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/08/19
Well-thought out snippets of important news with a quick overview, great delivery, and informative mini wrap ups. I like that I can listen to this quickly, but that I am also given places where I can dive deeper if interested. Excellent use of audio bits to give more context to the stories. I...Read full review »

Absolutely no push back on US propaganda.
RickrInSF via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/02/19
While most of the stuff I have listened to and enjoyed, I feel like I can no longer trust the information provided to be objective and factual. When a statement is made as fact that there WAS Russian collusion even though a special prosecutor has refuted that, I find your motives to be...Read full review »

this is what the NYT was... once upon a time.
bookishgal via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/29/19
So informative & interesting. Love this podcast!
ellexx1997 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/28/19
Too much biased undertone.
a_graham_ via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/26/19
Interesting and fun way to know what is going on. Only issue is multiple words especially in regards to foreign politics are often pronounced incorrectly.
Chelseacat4986 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/25/19
Smart and fast. That’s this podcast. You’ll get facts and then the skimm to sum it up.
AnnieOnTheRun via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/25/19
I love getting my morning skimm email and following up with the evening podcast so I’m always updated on important events. They make it fun and easy to digest. It’s a great way to get the news without being completely overwhelmed by it
shelbysim22 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/23/19
I love the way you take one topic and go deeper with it. there is some background but it’s not overwhelming. I haven’t noticed too much bias. But I tend to take all news with a grain of salt.
PatonC via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/21/19
It's a great podcast that gives news in short, fun segments. They keep it at a level where someone like me who doesn't know all the political jargon can follow along easily. Keep up the great work!Read full review »

Awesome!
eeyoremom via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/20/19
The Skimm does a fantastic job breaking news into bite size pieces that are easy to swallow. I can only imagine how much work goes into giving us the daily news in 15 minutes or less! It’s thorough and intuitive, but they never patronize the listener. Best current events podcast ever! I’ve...Read full review »
Paige.Champagne via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/18/19
Good overview of the news, but with very little context provided. For example, when a recent podcast said that Rob Porter and another White House adviser refused to testify before the House, claiming “absolute immunity,” they didn’t add, “The only time the concept of Absolute Immunity has been...Read full review »

Wow, Sept. 17th episode seemed unbiased. Very refreshing!
21ChristieTeddy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/18/19
Great content and presenter!
Jem2945 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/18/19
I love the energies from the host and they way they digest the news and explain it. International students MUST listen to this. It is very easy to understand. Ideal for intermediate level or higher.
JaneThanakrit via Apple Podcasts · Thailand · 09/15/19
The skimm will explain everything happen in the news and do it in a great way.
Happystart via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/13/19
I was hoping this would be more journalism with Ethics. Instead this is more left-leaning rhetoric.
Racerboy53 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/12/19
Tells you what you actually want to know about and not overly biased in my opinion
Katethegreat18 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/12/19
I love this podcast it’s very insightful. I also love their humor
nicknameeisalreadytaken via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/10/19
This has made driving home from work so much better. I feel so educated and up-to-date. I pick this over reading TheSkimm in the morning! So thankful they made this podcast.
ChristineSmith7 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/09/19
This is my favorite podcast!! It makes it so easy and interesting to keep up with the news! I wish it was 7 days a week!!
EllaAmes via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/06/19
PLEASE GET SOMEONE NEW TO READ THIS PODCAST. Important is not pronounced “impordant”. Button is not pronounced “buddon”. Britain is not pronounced “Bridain”. Anyone smart enough to listen to this brilliant podcast is smart enough to be annoyed by these continuous mispronunciations.
Solace140 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/06/19
I like hearing the news so succinctly, however the canned phrases and unchanging voice/diaolgue gets tiring.
shsukzns via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/02/19
I am terrible about keeping up with the news. I have been a subscriber to the Skimm newsletter for at least 2 years now and the format is great, but sadly, I end up not reading most of them. That’s where this podcast comes in— 10-15 minutes of the top news stories every week day presented in a...Read full review »

I love the snippets of information I get over a 10-12 minute period. I hate watching the news and hearing about all the negativity going on in the world. But this podcast gives me the perfect amount of information to keep me up to date just enough so I’m not completely left out. I love that they...Read full review »
