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.

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!!

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.

I like hearing the news so succinctly, however the canned phrases and unchanging voice/diaolgue gets tiring.

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 »

Great podcast to listen to on the drive home!
aimeeangelb via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/29/19
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 »

The capital of Brazil is Brasilia, NOT São Paulo

I highly recommend this podcast for those who have very little time to read or watch news. Brilliant coverage.

My favorite daily news podcast. They provide a great recap of what’s happening all around the world (Yay! a lot of podcasts only focus on the United States and I like that this provides a much broader view point) I can acknowledge that they do have a slight bias to the left, but most places have...Read full review »

Although the format provides quick updates I’m often surprised at the depth to which each segment reaches
binnaperville via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/15/19
Their “skimm” references are really cheesy and gimmicky but it’s a good show otherwise
Okayhey via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/13/19
This has quickly become my favorite podcast! I love that it’s never longer than 15 minutes and gives me all the important information that’s happened in the day. I feel so up to date!
AlexUmsted via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/13/19
Great delivery. Easy to understand
KSKS32 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/09/19
Very informative and I love her voice!
Bon Bon Cito via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/02/19
As a long time subscriber of the Skimm, I was thrilled to hear they were releasing a podcast! I religiously listen every evening and I love how they keep the news fresh & accurate, so I stay entertained & up to date on world events!
vrasicci via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/01/19
I love that it’s quick and informative. Sometimes I feel like it’s pandering to a certain generation who has issues with ‘adulting.’ Ahem.. talking about you millennials. But, maybe that’s on purpose.
KrisD4 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/31/19
I’ve been a subscriber of Skimm emails as well as when this podcast came out. Very informative and nice to get a breakdown of the news. Very helpful. However, some stories have opinion thrown in and have a slight left agenda. I’ll continue to listen but not the neutral news I originally came here...Read full review »
@Bjlanz via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/30/19
Love this podcast! I’ve been reading the skimm since college and have listened to every episode of the podcast. It’s perfect for my commute home. I would listen on the weekends if you made episodes then too! Personally I enjoy the narrators voice, I’m not a fan of the newscaster voice on TV these...Read full review »
KelseyF12 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/26/19
I use to love listening but the more I listened to the more obvious the bias towards a left sided political agenda becomes apparent. Still a listener and still good news but take some of the stories with a grain of salt. Hard to find unbiased and objective journalism nowadays
1161718 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/25/19
Love this podcast so far! I have lots of email subscriptions to news outlets and think tanks but don’t necessarily have the time or patience to read through everything each day. This podcast is the perfect way to stay in the loop on major events while breaking down the nitty gritty behind them in...Read full review »

It's not too long, they cover the important stuff in the news and explain it in a simple but still interesting way. I've loved their email newsletter for years and this is just as great.Read full review »

This is a fun, yet informative podcast. Try the app out, too.
bostnlegalfan via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/19/19
This show is very simple and short, which makes sense for what it is. It should absolutely not and in fact cannot be a source for real understanding or opinions, but it’s fine for keeping events on your radar. Star off for how clearly corporate-owned its opinions are, but it is serviceable for an...Read full review »

My wife and I listen to Skimm This religiously. Great way to stay informed.
Mike Maillaro via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/17/19
Perfect podcast for my car commute. Informative, though I wish the content would be more neutral without an opinion slant. I would also appreciate a more pleasant or commanding voice to deliver the news because the voice sounds childlike and grating. Great concept but, room for improvement
jcrew4 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/16/19
Love how the ads don’t feel like ads! Also they’re short and concise so you don’t feel bogged down with info!
PilMcD201706 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/15/19
Sometimes I get too busy at work and don’t have time to read the Daily Skimm, but the podcast is already ready for my commute home and makes me feel like I don’t miss as much. I love that the stories are concise but still informative and easy to understand & remember. Thanks to the team at...Read full review »
sllabat via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/12/19
I love the length of the podcasts. Just enough info on each topic. I do wish though that the Skimm would become more neutral on reporting especially in the upcoming year. I don’t want to have a right slant nor a left slant about the topics. I feel that the Skimm is leaning left which is...Read full review »

I love the skimm. I’m so grateful for a short, succinct podcast that gives me the essential news without taking the time to make me want to die from all the negativity. I feel like it’s the perfect combination of wit and intelligence to help me stay informed! Thanks Skimm!!
vegmegh via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/08/19
I love the Skimm This podcast for the same reason I love The Skimm emails and app - Quick and straightforward information about real topics and their impacts.
Queenrobotcat via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/03/19
Finally found a daily news podcast that I like! There’s nothing wrong with the host’s voice or manner of speaking. Some people just like to pick at anything..
bethanyalene via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/03/19
I was excited to get this podcast downloaded so I can listen to it on my commute. I was quite disappointed in the reporter’s voice. It was difficult to understand her half the time because she spoke so fast that I missed half the points of what she was trying to say, which was my whole reason for...Read full review »
Doreen8488 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/28/19
This is my quick and easy way of getting updated on the news but the skimm inserts their opinions in small snarky ways which isn’t what I care about.
aly611 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/27/19
The topics they choose are topics well discussed and things you should know about. It’s perfect for a quick recap on your way home from work, or while cooking dinner 👌🏽 A way to always stay informed without spending hours reading the paper.
Sandra @evomarketing_ via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/26/19
So thankful The Skimm is now available as a podcast! I benefited greatly from the daily emails but often skimmed them (ironic), leaving our crucial information, and many days I wouldn’t get around to reading it at all. This podcast is consistently brief, educational, and easy to digest on my...Read full review »

So happy to have found this a few years ago. Would love for you to expand to cover more in Canada!! (Please!) ❤️

For a New Yorker time is of the essence. You guys make things so clear easy to digest! Thank you.
chessFromNYC via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/21/19
I like getting a quick overview of the news but the narrator’s pronunciation of words like important, Britain, and eaten irk me a little bit. None of those words contain the letter D. I wish they weren’t so obviously left-leaning. Getting a snapshot of the news is great but I wish I would be...Read full review »

Love the skimmed version of the news, but cannot Stand how the girl delivers it. Her pauses in speech are so off, and it’s almost unbearable.
Mlove_1 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/17/19
The skim used to be one of my favorite places to get info. Lately they appear to be taking the biased route to reporting. Not sure if this is a Fox News influence or what.
Amppppppppppppppp via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/15/19
I listen every single day and I love it! Thanks for giving us a news outlet that gets to the point!
zoe deschanel via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/15/19
Morning must have. I listen to the night before, every morning. Great information that is easy and interesting to listen to.
JC7992 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/13/19
I love this podcast, keeps me updated & informed. I like her voice, she isn’t boring to listen to & the people worried about her pronunciation are not picking. I’ve never noticed anything so it must be pretty subtle. Lol. People are picky.
Mackie P via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/12/19
I love the skimm and the idea of this podcast. I listen to it in my commute to catch up on the latest news. However, the narrative voice really needs to change. Something about the one that current speaks is quite annoying and it actually makes me not want to listen any more. I feel like her...Read full review »
danielleyybelly via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/12/19
I love this podcast! It’s short enough for me to listen to daily on my commute, it’s so informative and also entertaining and I love the narrators voice. She makes the news sound like she’s just talking to you about it in a conversation.
csfox99 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/12/19
I have a hard time focusing on the content of podcasts when the narrator or host sounds like a teenager or has a ditzy voice. (Sorry, but that’s true.) This podcast is one example of that. Other than that, I like the quick overview concept of this podcast.
