I’m a college student so you might not take my review seriously. But NPR’s Up First is great, the episodes are short and I haven’t listened to an episode that exceeds 20min. They bring you international, national information that helps to keep you informed. The tone of voice that the broadcasters...Read full review »

Appreciated the daily updates, but this podcast is glaringly biased. I have been too irked by the obvious sarcasmβ€”especially on Inskeepβ€˜a part. You’re reporters and your job is to be objective. This is annoying to even left-leaning listeners.

I got tired of all the winning and wanted a simple news round-up program. Comprehensive, without getting too far into the weeds, with reporting that just feels fair, gosh darn it.

Complicated to listen to. Too many different voicesβ€”confusing. It lacked vital information about non-woven material. There was a poor description of woven material. A missed opportunity to educate about materials.

For the reasons stated above and more, WalMart needs to clean up its corporate act. Supporting Vox merely scratches the surface. Really appreciated the Up First Guantanamo during CoVid-19 coverage.

You do know everyone dies? You’re treating it like this wiping everyone out, and it’s not. I had it in January, stop trying so hard to scare everyone.

It’s how I start my morning every day!! It’s impartial - they give you the facts you need to make informed decisions - and tells you what you need to know to get through your day. First Up is my favorite!

We hear enough rants and bias from tv talking heads. No need to state the obvious...CNN says it 60 times an hour. Stick to what you do bestβ€”report the news concisely.

I love the idea of short, under 15 min updates but it’s so whiny against Trump that it’s distracting and makes me not feel like it’s fair information. (Btw, I don’t even like Trump!)

As much as I’m not a fan of Trump, you guys need to cool it with slanting almost every single topic about him and how it’s his fault, or just how stupid he is, this has really gotten unbearable for me to listen to. Please be more objective towards topics and the topics that you choose to talk...Read full review »

This show has a great concept and structure but the political bias about every topic is sad. We don’t care about your opinions, we just want the news. Stop trying to make everything about how you hate Trump and just tell us the news.

I don’t always agree with the story’s slant or interviewer’s tone, but I don’t miss a day because the information is essential. And you skip all the interstitials all too prevalent on Morning Edition!

This is a great program and NPR overall clearly has journalistic integrity and high standards. It’s sad that people make unfair accusations of bias. I guess that’s because truth has a liberal bias these days.

Thankyou for this story from Israel. Hopefully it will motivate people to look deeper into their hearts and minds and realize that we all share a commonality...being human. Our differences are what make us interesting. Our sameness is what makes us one.

This podcast is pretty good. You can tell they make an obvious attempt to not be partisan with the news. In my opinion, they may lean a bit right, but it’s still a fairly balanced news source. I appreciate them covering a wide range of topics in a fairly short amount of time.
JKeopka via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/17/20
I appreciate that up first goes into more detail about the top daily news items in a short space of time. It doesn’t feel like merely headlines but a bit more explanation of the core who, what, when, where, why. I also appreciate that it is balanced (although perhaps unduly so - amplifying the...Read full review »

It would be refteshing if there was occasionally a reporter or commentator with a conservative bent on the program as opposed to all the liberal, Trump hating reporters we get daily. How about β€œfair and balanced”?

The reporters are clearly sharp and talented. The podcast is well-designed and offers an ideal amount of detail. My only issue is that the commentary is often littered with left leaning sarcasm. It seems if NPR did a math show they’d say 2+2=4...but it’s really 7.5 for evil white businessmen....Read full review »

I am easily overwhelmed by the massive amount of media available to consume. NPR UpFirst keeps it short and sweet with a well balanced selection of informative stories for the day. Every morning I'm tuning in and it helps me feel connected without getting overwhelmed.Read full review »

I’ve been listening for over a year and I don’t believe this pod provides a fair representation of the news. Whether the team all leans left or the station is on the DNC’s pocket, they always give an anti-Trump spin at the end of every applicable story. Even when they give both sides of an...Read full review »
