I continue to get planet money podcasts on my up first feed. I have let npr know and they say it should be fixed. I have unsubscribed and resubscribed and done everything else to fix it. Although I love up first it is infuriating.

Simply the most efficient way to get a comprehensive look at the important news stories of the day.

Ads are never too long and usually relevant, and the amount and topics of the news is always well done. I look forward to it every weekday and wish that there was some version (still short and topical but maybe light topics also?) on weekends!

I love their content, it’s always great. They deliver it in a timely manner and it’s great. However, their music is pretty awful, I hate the theme that they play at the beginning and the end.

This used to be my “go to” podcast in the morning for news; however, ever since they updated their system, I have been getting hundreds of unwanted downloads from other NPR shows. This morning the icon said I was subscribed to Planet Money. Please figure this out.

I’ve been a loyal Up First listener since its launch but whatever is happening on the tech side of things is killing me! I’ve been unsubscribed twice, there are morning when Planet Money and this pod switch places, my automatic downloads aren’t happening properly... Come on, NPR. It’s been weeks...Read full review »

I listen everyday and feel informed. Not full of ads is a bonus.

This podcast has become my main source of daily news. I trust NPR to be objective and present the most relevant information every morning. I would recommend Up First to everyone who wants to stay informed on a busy schedule.

I start my day with this show every morning. Helps me keep up with what’s going on the world.

Must go to library to get podcast. Live Up Frost but tech changes have made it a pain to access
Great711 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/14/19
The best of public radio in a ten minute morning podcast!
Jos3_t via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/13/19
Planet money and Up First are mixed together. This issue has been there for a long time. Please provide a fix!
CJ Sails via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/13/19
I listen to this podcast every single morning and it’s so quick, but informative. Definitely recommend.
Joc1107 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/13/19
Just perfectly done
Pawla68 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/13/19
I cannot accept that they haven’t fixed the PM /up-first mix up yet. At first they were very apologetic but now they don’t even acknowledge it or care. Everyone should unsubscribe then check back in July.
Hokielawyer via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/13/19
This is a great podcast but can we please get this thing figured out out where Up First randomly switches to Planet Money? Come onnnnnnnnnnnn
Jdhix via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/13/19
Unsubscribing until they stop doing this. I’ve bulk deleted about 5 times now and it keeps downloading other NPR stuff to my phone.
Maddy10000000 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/12/19
This podcast regularly somehow subscribes its listeners to Planet Money, another NPR podcast. This technical issue also unsubscribes listeners from Up First, which has caused me to need to hunt down the show again in order to listen to it. You would think the Up First team would feel urgency...Read full review »

I used to listen to this podcast, but with the massive amounts of unwanted downloads, it’s hard to know what show I’m listening to vs. what I wanted to listen to. Not a fan anymore.
Leeprince78 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/12/19
Ever since you had a gliche with your subscriptions (a month or so ago?), I am getting cross-pollination with Planet Money and UpFirst. Last week the PM shows were in UF and now UF is in the PM Folder. I love both of these, but this is super irritating. I think I’ll unsubscribe from both until...Read full review »

Great podcast. You weave broadcasters effortlessly with sound bites and visiting reporters. Really nicely done and incredible sound quality. Some of us have limited phone storage so having a bunch of planet money episodes downloaded (when I didn’t subscribe to planet money) is annoying.
Icywinterrain via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/12/19
It’s short and straight to the point. I love this podcast!!
AJ_3019 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/12/19
a glitch keeps flipping what should be Up First to Planet Money. Great useful podcast when it it actually plays.
sdhgchuf via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/12/19
I LOVE the Up First podcast. It enables me to listen to the headline stories without the sensationalism and hysteria. Just the facts, Ma’am. Then I can go about my day and ignore all of the nonsense that seems to happen minute-by-minute, until I watch PBS News Hour in the evening. I AM...Read full review »

I absolutely love this show!! I’m able to get a survey of the day’s news. I would give them 5-stars. However, like other commenters, the feed confuses UpFirst with Planet Money. I subscribe to both, but only one shows up at a time. Please fix this
Tarphor via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/11/19
As a millennial I don’t have cable bc duh it’s expensive. So I miss a lot of news that happens daily. I like listening to this podcast to stay informed with what is happening around the world and US and in politics. Thanks for helping me stay informed NPR!
risslist via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/11/19
NPR - please fix the mixup between Up First and Planet Money. I’m sick of having to hunt for this podcast every day - if it continues I’ll just unsubscribe and drop you from both my memory and my vocabulary.
acknowledge and fix the issues via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/10/19
Up first was good. Now ever week they spam me with hundreds of planet money episodes. I’m not interested in Planet money. The error is becoming a nuisance.
JamesCurtisY via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/10/19
Love the show, listen to it every day. But I’m going crazy over the fact that a ton of planet money episodes are being downloaded too, and the thumbnail for the show switches back and forth. I know they acknowledged the issue like...months ago, but why hasn’t it been fixed yet?
ctjsskkf via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/10/19
Every day sine y’all had your big server meltdown this podcast downloads to my phone instead of up first and I am unsubscribed from up first. It is so annoying and when I tweeted NPR help about it they gave me some long convoluted process to fix. I have never listened to one episode but I now...Read full review »

It just messes me up. If I want to listen to PM - and I do - I will listen on its own feed, on the air, or on NPR One - and I do. At the very least don’t change the name and icon.
NotZed via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/10/19
I love this podcast but the Planet Money thing is still happening to me too and it’s very frustrating. You all should have fixed this by now!
Halsgirl via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/10/19
I’m subscribed to Up First, not Planet Money. The feed automatically downloads Planet Money episodes. Very annoying. Please fix the problem.
ablackfeminist via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/10/19
I AM NOT SUBSCRIBED PLEASE STOP
Nate the drug guy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/09/19
Dear NPR, Whenever a new episode of Up First downloads, which is a podcast I subscribe to, an additional episode of Planet Money also downloads and then I am unsubscribes automatically from Up First. This happens every day. Please have Apple Podcasts fix this error. Thank you.

I despise the man. I won’t listen to ANY podcast that exalts him. He is destroying our democracy.
W. Fox via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/08/19
I like how this show is easy to listen to, and they report well on topics that are kind of contained, here in the USA, but with foreign policy stuff, they’re not always right. For example, they kind of demonized Venezuela’s Nicolás Maduro and favored Juan Guaidó a lot. Maduro did NOT “steal” the...Read full review »

I like Planet Money too, but you've GOT to fix your feed!
ChrisWalker307 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/07/19
Quick snippet of international top news stories. Perfect length.
shadanalhurd via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/07/19
I don’t want planet money! Otherwise I love upfirst!

Please do not say ‘easy peasy lemon sqeezy’
Iambic12345 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/07/19
I’m really sad to have stopped subscribing to UpFirst. I keep getting hundreds of downloads of other podcasts that think they are UpFirst but when I listen they are something else. Let me know when this is fixed and I’ll come back.
Coral Gables Girl via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/07/19
I love listening to Up First but after the 3rd time I got hundreds of old Planet Money episodes dumped in my feed, I had to delete and unsubscribe. I hope NPR puts an ad on other podcasts to let listeners know when they’ve achieved technical competence.
WasteMyTimeNickname via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/07/19
super disappointed in this last episode. there’s a reason the west virginia police didn’t want to use the shooter’s name. when the news focuses so heavily on the shooter’s identity and story, there’s a huge correlation in more mass shootings happening as a result. the fact that not only npr...Read full review »

I, too, keep getting episodes of Planet Money uploaded to my phone. I love Up First, but I’m very annoyed with this!
Michael in CA via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/07/19
Best way to start the day. Comprehensive yet brief.
addkavev via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/07/19
What is going on with Up First getting mixed with other NRP podcasts?!?
every goddamn name is taken via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/06/19
Constantly getting this show when I signed up for Up First. I unsubscribed to this show and resubscribed to Up First and I again have this show...
Jadan127 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/06/19
I like to listen to UP First; however, Planet Money is labeled Up First on my Podcast. I’ve deleted and re-subscribed with no success. I guess I’ll watch FOX.
Ckpshuman via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/06/19
Lots of apologies. Please don’t promise that you are “working on the problem to ensure that it will not happen again” when it continues to happen again and again...
