Love it! A show that realizes you want a quick update on what’s been going on, compatible with a busy lifestyle, but also that if the news isn’t delivered with some levity, interpretation and straight up groans from the presenters it’s just TOO DEPRESSING! Love it!

I love this little, short program at the start of my day. They let me know what to listen for. Akila and Gideon are great partners and I love her (?) headliiiinnnnes intro

I love all of crooked media and wanted to really love this pod. I have tried numerous time - but the humor is so forced. I feel like it might evolve into a better dynamic of the hosts- but bringing up obscure 80s/90s culture sounds painful from them. The news and information is top notch but I’ll...Read full review »

I enjoy this show and start my mornings with it!

Thin pretenses of objectivity are belied by the unapologetic bias towards everything that doesn’t fit a liberal meme.
Larry321321 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/16/20
The chemistry between the two hosts is fantastic, and the balance of humor and news is just right. This has replaced The Daily for me, and I look forward to it every morning! (But I wish they were as neutral as the other Crooked Media shows. They really seem biased for Bernie when you compare...Read full review »
My Night Sight via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/15/20
I usually wake up to WAD, and enjoy the updates, but notice that sometimes they miss over huge stories. Right now the Canadian rail lines have been totally halted due to protests in solidarity with the Wet’suwet’en for over a week, and they didn’t even mention it last week. For a leftist podcast...Read full review »

They always have the perfect tone - in general it’s light-hearted, but Akila and Gideon take important topics very seriously & with the concern they deserve. I highly recommend this podcast!

What a Day is doing for daily news podcasts what Jon Stewart did for late night.
katekelly125 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/15/20
I listen every day and love these two. I missed Akila when she was in Iowa!
Susan Magoosan via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/14/20
I love that this pod keeps me so informed (I feel like WAD always covers at least one issue the rest of my daily news pods don't) while also helping me feel less alone in how today's news is making me feel. Akilah and Gideon are wonderful and make me laugh every time, even as they're...Read full review »

Great podcast! First thing I listen to at my desk every morning. Recommending to everyone.
jenn199211 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/11/20
I listened to this for the first month hoping it would get better. I love all things Crooked Media, but this one feels too forced and scripted and the hosts try too hard to be funny. Maybe it’s just growing pains and I will try again later, but I’m unsubscribing for now.
TXTennisChick via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/09/20
I listen to you guys every morning getting up for school (I try and be ready by the time the headlines are done as a little game) and have effectively trained myself to become less tired and more energized as soon as I hear your theme song. Honestly I love it. your energy is so refreshing for the...Read full review »

Love love love WAD and I’m glad Akilah is back. Love the quick news while I’m getting ready for work and my kid is still asleep. I’m happy the impeachment sound was played one final time. It cracked me up. Thank you Crooked Media for creating a daily news podcast.
maestra_morales via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/07/20
As a graduate student I don’t have much time to check in and see what’s going on in the USA. This podcast solved it for me and keeps me updated! Highly suggest!
Brillyg10 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/06/20
News? Sure. Commentary? Meh. Cringey jokes, scripted banter, and ho-hum hosts. The episodes where Gideon was joined by Tommy and Erin were stellar. Can’t say the same for the rest.
#VietorForHost via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/06/20
Proud to be a “WAD”. Insightful information delivered with just the right amount of wit and snark. Gideon and Akilah- keep up the excellent podcast.
Pod squad girl via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/06/20
Listening to WAD is how I start my morning! I love the informative and witty delivery of both hosts. I also didn’t realize how much I liked Akilah until she was gone!💙 Love this show, thank you guys!
MioRosa via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/05/20
Love the pod but one thought on today’s episode. FDA approval of the first peanut allergy drug is not a good thing. Peanut autoimmune therapy has been around for thirty years. Doctors use peanut flour successfully. My son recently completed therapy. Without insurance the cost is about $5000 for...Read full review »

Great content and great hosts, but episodes have become too long. 15 min or less would be better for a bite sized morning podcast.
Dlombardi528 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/03/20
I listen every morning on my drive to work, and it fills me in on things I may have missed while I was sleeping, and also informs me on things that I don't know a lot about. Plus, Akilah and Gideon are amazing and make me laugh every morning. Who doesn't want to start their day with a...Read full review »
ThghtLsScmng via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/02/20
The banter here is really bad. And I know I’m listening to a liberal slanted news source but the bias can be over the top at times. Please get better...or maybe test hosts for chemistry. Also, as others have noted less Pokemon and other millenial references and more actual learning the topic at...Read full review »
StellarStila via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/02/20
I enjoy listening to this podcast for the news tidbits that help keep me up-to-date on current events, but please lay off the humor a bit, the jokes are corny and poorly executed. The desire to inject humor into the oftentimes depressing and discouraging events happening around us is...Read full review »

BarefootRunner via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/01/20
I’ve been listening to this podcast since it started, hoping it would find its groove, but it hasn’t. I don’t know if the hosts write the scripts or if it’s someone else but it is overall some cringeworthy material. More stories and facts and less trying to be funny please. You could shave...Read full review »

::unsubscribes from The Daily:: Thanks team Crooked for this pod! It’s become my daily morning routine. Love the hosts and love that it’s basically a one stop shop for all the important news happening around the world.
mellie_melly via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/31/20
I enjoy the brief and comprehensive overview of a variety of topics. Some of the banter feels a bit much though! Almost on the verge of making me uncomfortable! Maybe that is the point? But at times it leads me to stop listening earlier than I would otherwise.
Valesia2020 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/30/20
With so much misinformation and BS news out there, this is a great way to get caught up in 10 minutes. Part of my daily routine now!
The sheeb via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/30/20
I look forward to this pc everyday. Does anyone else sing along to headlines 🎶 love their info and just plain old happiness, even in these dark days of news. Thanks guys❤️
HO-HO-HO via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/30/20
The jokes, songs, synchronized closings, and games are so cheesy and feel like a waste of time. I was looking for a daily podcast to keep me in the loop, but I feel like I only get 5 minutes of news and the rest is just commentary. I wanted to love it, as I love a lot of crooked media’s material....Read full review »

Great repartee even though Akita’s is away!
Gail90295 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/29/20
Gideon is great too.
alh57!!! via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/28/20
Akilah will be dearly missed. It’s definitely an 11. I really enjoy this show.
O.Elkoton via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/28/20
Gets in my head all the time. And y’all are charming. Keep up the good work ❤️

Awesome show and good way to start my day while waiting for the next Pod Save America.

Smh
Incredibly sloppy and irresponsible coverage of Kobe’s passing...I hope your never accused of one bad thing which your acquitted for and posthumously someone brings up that one event on the day you and your child has died.... Come on guys...
Expert of Real via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/27/20
You’ll be missed 11, beside Gideon we’ll still get the info Resnick (sp)
Peter McCall via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/27/20
I love the intro music. The Headlines music is a bit of a bug. The beat’s not great. The vocals are pretty and a keeper, but the whole segue can use a revamp. Love you guys!! — The Muslim guy!
YusufAmin via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/24/20
This show does a great job succinctly addressing complex topics and cutting to the heart of issues. I find Akilah Hughes wit and charm incredibly enjoyable and to me this makes the show such a standout.
Notia 2233444 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/24/20
We are flooded with news from mainstream media that focuses more on opinions than facts. I wish I could find a podcast that would tell me the facts and I didn’t automatically know the journalists’ political party. Give the people un-opinionated and unbiased news!
Abbsed via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/23/20
I love Akilah’s laugh!! And love to sing along with Headlinessss😀
mbtchic via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/23/20
I REALLY wanted to like this podcast. I adore and respect the other crooked pods, but this one just isn’t hitting its stride. I don’t mind some humor ( my favorite pod is Lovett or Leave It) but there are times the hosts come off as uninformed when they deviate from their script. Often they...Read full review »

Was a daily listener from the beginning until the awkwardly obvious Warren bias started reaching cringe levels. If CNN gave birth to college-aged kids that created a podcast, I imagine this is what it would sound like. Pure centrist bs.
Sleep489415 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/23/20
Truely enjoy this podcast. Great succinct info, but the "headlines" music has become like fingernails on a chalkboard. Sorry.Read full review »

Funny, insightful and lovely people in my ears in the morning. These guys soften my long commute while dishing out hard facts. Very digestible.
electric_bassoon via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/22/20
I really enjoy this fun and informative show—it’s almost my favourite news source...except that I find myself racing for the off button before it gets to the part where the hosts try to say a phrase in unison at the end. It’s a little too much like high school morning announcements.
mrs.locklin via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 01/21/20
This is the perfect amount of information first thing in the morning! Devoted listener since day one!
