I want the Skimm read to me so I can listen to the news while getting ready and driving! Don’t have time to sit and read much, and LOVED when there was a daily podcast. Come back :(

This is not a objective media source. Enjoyed the daily updates. Wish the weekly updated were a more neutral source of media.

Listen to your own sound bites. The President did not say domestic terrorism - he said domestic terror. No -ism. Not the same. So, a whole 5-6 minutes of slanted, biased information. Or rather, MISinformation.

I love this podcast, I think it’s a great resource for information, however, I miss the 10 minute daily overviews. I enjoyed listening to it after work and now it’s just too long and infrequent.

I miss your daily podcasts! Please reconsider bringing them back.

This is my favorite news podcast. I would love to have a daily report. Thank you for great reporting and summarizing!

짧고 재밌는 유용한 내용이 담겨있는 my favorite podcast!!!

I’ve tried a lot of news podcasts and this is the best by far. It is unbiased, well researched and presents issues from multiple perspectives. I loved it as a daily podcast and still love it as a weekly podcast.

But I’m getting really sick of the both sides BS while we are dying from the pandemic. This is not a podcast for progressives. It will frustrate you. Learn how to be more objective like NPR.

I like the Skimm’s casual style and broad focus on more than just politics and policy. But, with the switch from a daily to a weekly format, the Skimm’s coverage has become redundant. In essence, by the time the Skimm drops, I’ve already heard about the stories it features on other news sites and...Read full review »

My daughter introduced me to this podcast. I look forward to hearing during my evening walk. Thanks! And absolutely love the Skimm’d from The Couch!!! Thanks!

I LOVE this podcast! I try to limit my exposure to the news so this podcast and the email newsletter are the best for keeping me informed in a clever and succinct way. I also love the Skimm’d from the Couch podcast as well!

I much preferred when the podcasts were daily. Now that I broke my habit of listening everyday, I forget to listen to them once a week and have switched to a different news source. Even though the newsletter is daily, I prefer the podcast to be daily and the newsletter weekly. Will you be going...Read full review »
terrible app but good bank via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/14/20
I really miss the daily format. Hoping it’s only temporary. I appreciated having an update each evening to stay current.
miss cgh via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/13/20
Story coverage is shorter, but still hits the main points. Love the voice and doesn't feel like other "news" podcasts, like it goes one step deeper to why it matters. Like 1xweek. Thx theSkimm!Read full review »

They made a huge mistake switching from a 10-minute daily version to the longer weekly version. I listened to every single episode of the daily one, and can’t stand the weekly version.
MCSurdel via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/09/20
I loved this podcast but I haven’t listened since it went to a weekly format. It makes the information delivered stale and redundant.
tankerslife via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/07/20
I definitely preferred this when it was a daily podcast! 🥺
itscourtneyelana via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/29/20
Please please please bring back the daily skimms, weekly podcasts are good but not nearly as encompassing as the daily ones!
MaddyMP44 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/29/20
I looked forward to the short daily episodes at the end of my work day. While the new format is informative, it is not what I loved about the Skimm to begin with and wish you would revert back.
Vgs05002 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/26/20
Echoing many other reviewers: I loved the daily 11ish minute podcast. I would listen to it each morning and thought it was very informative and gave just enough info. Now, it’s once a week and is too long- I find myself not really listening to the whole thing. I understand you wanted to try...Read full review »
laura812 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/19/20
I was such a huge fan of your daily updates and RAVED about them to all my friends and family. I looked forward to winding down every evening listening to your podcast. I feel like the weekly updates, while informative, are just repeated the same of what we’ve heard/seen all week while catching...Read full review »
Sbork87 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/19/20
Very informative content and appreciate the deep dives on Friday, but would prefer to have the daily content to stay informed in the world. I liked the style of a few key news stories each episode as opposed to other daily shows which either cover a lot very briefly or one very in depth. I’m...Read full review »

I was addicted to listening to the evening show. It was unique, brief and informative. Please bring it back
Blue Apron Fan 78 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/17/20
I used to listen every week day and now it’s not even a week in review it’s just bland stuff that I’ve already heard all week. I loved the information every day but now, sorry I had to unsubscribe.
Dimantryopus via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/13/20
Used to be my favorite, but the once a week thing isn’t ideal. Unsubbed.
WickedWitchOfTheWest82379235 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/13/20
Echoing other reviewers, I'd love to see the shorter episodes again! The current format is still informative but the 10 minute length was perfect and I loved feeling informed on the day's current events.Read full review »
EmilyMusic via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/11/20
The old daily short form was better!
CFletch627 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/10/20
Quick, to the point and informative. Complicated information is explained so you comprehend the news and understand the impact of the news.
smindian via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/09/20
Hi, I would love the format going back to the shorter sessions of 15 minutes. The news is overwhelming and the short presentation was perfect for me and I wild research later on more in detail. I’ve been overwhelmed by 30 minutes and have been deleting removing the podcast unfortunately.
qsddwa via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/09/20
I really miss the podcast that showed up in my library every day. I enjoyed listening to it with my kids and catching up on news but now I have to wait a whole week to listen to one topic. It is still well done but I already have podcasts that I listen to that focus on one issue at a time. ...Read full review »
A.J.17 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/08/20
It’s well done. And I liked the segment on cash bail, a new angle on something that’s connected to what’s going on.
kyla-s-db via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/06/20
I was drawn to Skimm This because it covered the top news stories of the day, explained them well, in 10-15 minutes. It provided a service that is rare to find (and have it be fairly neutral). Now the episodes are 30+ minutes and I’ve completely stopped listening. I have loads of podcasts that...Read full review »
BartlebyUnicorn via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/06/20
I was loving the daily. Perfect length and kept me in the loop. Please bring it it back!
M_Ryburn via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/06/20
While I enjoy the once a week podcast, I really appreciated the daily podcast for its overview of what was happening daily.
panns66 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/05/20
I miss the daily news coverage. Please come back!
FanTAPstik via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/05/20
The daily newsletter kept me so up to date. Please bring it back! I had even gotten into Skimm This but now I have NO daily news to listen to as I’m getting ready or winding down 💔
Jingle for Julie via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/05/20
What the show has become is exactly what we don’t need... we need more daily news, less politics and these economy pieces...there are 10 other podcasts that given us these long educational pieces on one topic, there is literally 2 other podcasts that do the daily news in 15 minutes and they are...Read full review »
awful never signs in via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/04/20
Missing the daily Skimm report- was the best way to keep me up to date. Please bring back
REassist via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/03/20
I stopped listening to your podcast as they’re quite long being compressed into one weekly podcast :(. Hope you bring back the daily podcast. There are a few competitors out there but they don’t dive deeply into the issues being presented as you do!
hokize12 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/02/20
I miss the daily dose of Skimm! This is how I get my News and so once a week is not enough. I hope it comes back soon!!
Jiavb3 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/02/20
I’m just echoing others that miss the Daily plus I had it listed in Alexa with NPR. We miss it!!
Chilewriter via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/01/20
I love The Skimm! I read the news email every morning and I WAS listening to updates every afternoon. I do like the Friday recap and focus, but I miss my daily updates. Any way we could get both? Please, please, please! Skimm is one of few news groups that I trust to state the facts and keep a...Read full review »
DewBear83 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/01/20
I purposely only listened to the daily skim because it was short and to the point. Now I have to wait until Friday. #bummer
Charmsine Labelle via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/31/20
I miss the daily episodes. The weekly ones are good but I feel like I have already heard a lot of the info. The daily ones seemed more of the moment.
Kkritten via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/31/20
I loved listening to the daily episodes before the recent switch. It was the perfect amount of news for me, and I felt like if there was something I wanted to learn more about after listening to the episode I could look it up that evening. I am not motivated to listen to these weekly recap...Read full review »
KristennicoleR7 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/30/20
I hesitate to listen to the weekly episode because it’s so much longer.
LaurenB718 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/30/20
I love that the weekly updates are so detailed but I really loved the daily updates even more! Honestly you guys could talk about literally anything and I would listen because I’m such a big fan, but I do miss your daily news updates!
Christinebaker via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/29/20
Please reconsider and bring back the daily updates. I just listened to the latest Friday update and it wasn’t even an update about the week. It focused on one item. Unemployment, while very important, was not the only news this week. Unsubscribing and finding something else.
