Love this podcast, great snap shot of the news each day and great insight from the presenters. Please get another sponsor, the CBA ads are getting too much for me!

I found The Briefing through an ad on podcast one and I think I’ve been listening to the podcast from episode 1. I have listened to The Briefing’s equivalents in Australia and a few out of other countries. I like The Briefing because it doesnt just replicate the stories and attitudes that are...Read full review »

The team to a great job with the daily episodes. So much better than reading the news on the phone or watching it on TV. Highly recommend !

Love the podcast. But cannot take the repetitive Commonwealth bank ads. Will still listen though, 10/10.
samsam_737227 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/15/20
I used to really love this podcast but I feel like the deep dive topics have become very repetitive. There are so many huge things happening in the world OTHER than COVID

Generally I have enjoyed listening to this podcast however when talking about the most powerful passport I thought the topic was quite weak. Also not sure who cares about this. I would love to see more of a challenge to the Australian media to really understand what the big issues are in the world.

Always a good start to the day to get the latest news and informed discussion on hot topics. Thank you Tom, Jan, Annika and Jamila, great job!

Have been really enjoying this podcast! Very entertaining and easy to listen to. A really great team of presenters but particularly love the political insights from Annika.

Would have given 4-5 stars usually. Report about JK Rowling 13/10 was awfully unbalanced and biased. No significant quoting from any of her written responses, consideration about her perspective or discussion about the positive work she has done in the LQBTQI+ community. Just pandering to lefty...Read full review »

Not tired. Great cohosts, particularly live the chemistry between Annika, Jam, Jan and Tom.

Wish Tom Tilly would use more critical thinking than concluding that Kevin Rudd criticism is because he has nothing else to do. Think a little deeper

Thank you to Tom and the team for this new news podcast. I might not always get time for the daily podcasts but it’s still relevant to hear casts even a week after they are aired. So easy to listen to and keeps me up to date with current affairs.

Perfectly timed to my morning walk to the bus station, a great way to skim the Aussie headlines and the deep dive always gives me something interesting to chat about with coworkers. Love the pace and style, keep it up!
Instagranny via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/16/20
Really look forward to this daily podcast. Great panel.
ffules via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 09/14/20
Just wish it was a little longer. Love the topics and presenters Look forward to the new episode each morning!
kelwain24 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 09/11/20
I have enjoyed some episodes however struggling with the news part - federal government talking points. Today 8/9 we hear criticism from the EX CMO Brendan Murphy. Will keep trying but as a Melbourne based listener, I may need to tune out.
JaneOAus via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 09/08/20
I love the Briefing! It’s my go-to way to keep up with the Australian(& other) news without spending hours scrolling or chaining myself in front of the TV. The hosts maintain the perfect balance between taking their topics seriously and keeping the vibe upbeat. Great job guys, keep it up!
eve_kay via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/17/20
Great podcast, really interesting discussions. Host & guest hosts are well spoken and make intelligent, thought provoking but not too ‘heavy’ conversation and analysis on current issues and news stories. My only complaint is how many times I’ve had to listen to the ‘want your mortgage to pay...Read full review »

While the toddler and husband are still in bed in the early morning, I indulge... in news! I never thought I’d be an early morning news listener, but combining a voice I grew up with on JJJ Hack and three amazing, to-the-point, clear communicating women is just dynamite. The only gripe- slight...Read full review »

Sad
I am sad how elderly are being looked after. I am glad issues are being discussed but I think one side of politics totally discards any medicine that could help people zinc quinine . Zinc is an antiviral, Vitamin D & C.Sad. Taxpayers fund these people. Stop it.

Love this bite sized news podcast, I listen religiously every morning. Just the right amount of info to keep me informed of current happenings around the world before I start my work day.
saraharies via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/01/20
I really enjoy this podcast. I’m and Aussie living in nz so it’s nice keeping up to date with the news back home. I just feel, some major issues are skipped over. In a way I feel like it’s turning into the mainstream media, picking and choosing what to put out, rather then giving the whole...Read full review »

I love listening to The Briefing every morning. The mix of current events and topical case studies is very well researched and produced, and the hosts are fantastic to listen to. It’s my go-to breaky podcast. Keep up the awesome work guys!
Sarah McInnes via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/26/20
Love it! Wake up to it every day now
Jesse Hare via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/23/20
Love listening and great content. My one annoyance is the repetitive and frequent background music between stories etc. Bugs me so much!
Joy12345 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/20/20
Really enjoying listening. Thank you for putting your time and effort into this podcast. Love all of the hosts too.
Jessicaanneh via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/10/20
Very disappointed with today’s episode which was emotive, and interviewed guests who were distressed and clearly would have a binary view of the situation. I expected a more balanced, fact based, reporting and alternative perspectives - because there is another side to the described scenario.
Chicken Potpar via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/09/20
I’m loving this podcast!! It has become my morning tradition, the perfect listen while drinking my coffee on my walk to work!!!
Prudence22 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/01/20
Congratulations team, I love this podcast, succinct, fresh, on point, non sensational, presented in an informative way, be proud, because I am

Nup
Try-hard shock-jock attempt with veneer of intelligentsia. Thin veneer. Actually just amateurish.
herchkpitgswtipo via Apple Podcasts · Japan · 06/28/20
The best hosts and journalists in Australia all in one podcast, I couldn’t ask for more. I especially love Tom Tilley now that he can go a wee bit rogue and isn’t restricted by being on ABC hehe
IronMaven80 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 06/23/20
Really love the show, and you guys as journalists. Thanks a bunch!
cheekymonkeyssJ4 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 06/22/20
Whilst I love the show please stop perpetuating the belief that Jacinta Ardern is the only female poly who can do a great job. Every time you say “we’ve been trying to get Jacinta over here” you contribute to the sentiment that she is the only female politician in the world who we could expect to...Read full review »
Dimitrova McCarious via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 06/19/20
This episode ignored calls the defund the police in Australia and didn’t address police violence in our own country. Tom said “I’m glad Australia isn’t like that’ too many times, it appeared to be trying to deescalate the conversation on our own soil
Eydiecrowley via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 06/18/20
Great way to start the day and get me across the news. Loving the topics!
Smithie222 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 06/18/20
Let’s be honest, anything Tom Tilley touches turns to gold. Great topics, good reporting, and Tom is an excellent interviewer. I’ve really enjoyed this on my morning commute to work
AmyGeebers via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 06/17/20
Totally panders to the minority ‘with no thought of the majority of people’s ideals off , ‘you get treated the same as you give in society and life. Criminals must be treated like criminals , no matter of there race or colour , “ Justice for all must be totally Colour Blind!!!!!, you get what you...Read full review »

Great content Tom, reminds me of when you hosted Hack. You can have a 5th star if you mix up the ads a bit, I get that Sponsors make this happen... but hearing 3 ads about Foxtel’s footy package every episode is driving me bonkers.
BEZTALVE via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 06/14/20
I love listening to this as part of my morning routine. Succinct information by great speakers
rosie ham via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 06/09/20
I have been listening to this podcast since the day it kicked off and always loved the format and the commentary and insights by Jamila, Annika and my fav Jan Fran. But I loathe the embedded Foxtel ads that Tom Tilley is raging on about throughout the podcast. I don’t necessarily mind the ads in...Read full review »

I have appreciated this format for news and current events however there is a colossal history of anti-Black systems and structures in the US (and Australia) that has been completely missed. To describe this current moment as scary is true; however it seems unfair for 3 white journalists to tell...Read full review »
E Farrell via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 06/02/20
I’ve been loving this podcast, listen every morning since it started, and I’m an old diehard Hack fan from Tom’s days at triplej. However this week I’ve been so put off by the excessive Foxtel advertising. I understand that sponsorship is important for generating revenue but THREE rather lengthy...Read full review »

Just listened to my first episode. Love this!
bekmalherbe via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/26/20
Thoroughly enjoying the daily hot topics... the in-depth discussions but above all the facts! So great to hear the facts about the 5G conspiracies... just need hubby to listen and learn the facts too. Thanks Tom, JanFran & Annika 🙌🏻
SandraFK2014 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/20/20
Love listening to this podcast in the morning while I make breakfast. Perfect length and great format.
Kelppy via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/19/20
The best way to start the day, The Briefing’s latest ep and a cup of coffee. Such good guests, great interviews and amazing journalists. Freakin’ love it.
KT011013 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/19/20
I’m loving listening to this podcast as I eat breakfast everyday. Tom, Jan, Jamila and Annika are amazing hosts - I love how the hosting team is different everyday. Great bite sized pieces of news at the top and the briefing segment is fantastic. Keep up the great work gang!
