This show has quickly become my favorite daily news show. It’s informative but not too heavy. Great job!!

There's so much nervous energy bouncing around during these episodes that I can't even listen for the full 15 minutes. This tone makes the hosts sound unprepared and unprofessional, which is surprising since most of Crooked Media's content is so well-researched.Read full review »

Loved the interview with Sherrod brown.telling it like it is!

As a daily news junkie, I have thoroughly enjoyed both hosts, and the way they lite heartedly deliver the big stories, in a brief amount of time.

Love the new normal you are giving us during this uncertain time.

If you wake up in the early hours of the morning with fear of missing out, these good spirited hosts will make it all better. Seriously, they have a way of helping you not hate the news.

I almost never write these even tho I should and wanted to say I enjoyed this podcast before the Pan and really appreciate the approach you are taking during the Pan.

Great daily news podcast. Listened to every episode and I laugh every time. Nice to have that in a dark depressing political landscape Also Akilah’s “random things I read” is straight up creepy for me. She knows random things I’ve read, from horror movie summaries on Wikipedia to Monopoly Chance...Read full review »

“when we get to the other side of this, let’s make sure we have a plan to connect all, because I don’t want us to be in a situation where we just rely on their generosity, I think we really need to have the justice of knowing that there’s a plan to connect everyone in this country.” This is a...Read full review »

These two makes me smile even though everything is on fire.
Tsudiia via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/24/20
You two are great, and like the title, as important as my morning cup of coffee. Of the crooked media shows, you two have quickly become my favorite. I feel like I am listening to my friends talk about yesterday.
damnyousteve via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/24/20
I’m a hard-core daily news consumer. What A Day offers a *delightful* tone along with the important daily headlines. There’s surprising depth to many stories, too, for an under-15-minute podcast. Shoutout to head writer John Millstein (sp?) for putting a fresh Gen Z spin on the often sobering...Read full review »

Very informative and appropriately fun ~ given the times

I look forward to listening every morning while I walk my dog, Bixby. You both have great energy, passion, knowledge and sense of fun despite these tough times. I wish you had a longer show!!
SummerSusan via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/23/20
Hey guys I love you both, you totally make my mornings and you’re making life feel so much more normal during these wacky times! I wanted to give a title idea for your new segment but I don’t use twitter so hopefully you guys read these... anyways, what do you think about “quarantinis, anyone?”...Read full review »

You are my HAPPY podcast in these trying times! Thank you!! 👏🏼💦🦠👑🙌🏼
irenomis via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/20/20
I’ve listen to these guys since the beginning of this Podcast. Akila and Gideon are hilarious. Daily news podcast with comedy and humor millennials appreciate.
crystalrellaford via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/20/20
I was excited that crooked media had a daily news podcast. After listening for about a month I was very disappointed. Although funny at times the hosts are very condescending and have some very cringeworthy jokes. When COVID-19 started becoming a story they talked about how everyone was...Read full review »

Before Covid 19 I would listen to Rachel’s podcast and get my morning dose of outrage. Now that the world has turned upside down, I am not in need of outrage just nice calming conversation. You two give me just what I need, thanks so much.
jimmydiesel19 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/19/20
Thank you for using that song for Super Tuesday!!!
zensilkdeathbed via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/19/20
Akilah and Gideon are awesome, the lighthearted way they deliver the news is refreshing. Love the short updates and their spin on the news!
twinkleinyoureye via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/19/20
So soothing!

Great podcast. Helps me understand the world and keeps me smiling. Akilah and Gideon are awesome!!

A cup of coffee and What a Day...how I always start.
galeinsd via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/17/20
Love the tone and chemistry with these two, but most of all, I loved how seemingly objective it was. I’m so sick of the left/right/identity politics bs.... just want my sources to respect their audiences intelligence and report on issues like an adult, and yes, include a little humor too. Well,...Read full review »

What a day is the only news, culture, gossip, weather and humor source I need. Without this podcast, I would have nothing. Great Job!
Shea Serrano is 6'3 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/15/20
I really like the chemistry between the hosts, and also like getting a lot of news in a few bites.
heliotrope2 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/13/20
Love you guys, love the pod for its succinct coverage of the news, and especially love WAD theme music. But PLEASE stop doing the audio clip montages of various newscasters saying the exact same phrase over and over and over and over again. I do not need to hear “corona virus” a half dozen times...Read full review »

Love listening to What a Day on my way to work in the morning. Simple, straightforward daily news coverage from two delightful people. And love the headlines jingle!
KatMG77 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/12/20
I look forward to listening to this every morning right after I finish The Daily. They compliment each other so well. Gideon is witty and has honest humor. Akilahh is insightful, outright funny and tells it how it is with a balance of grace and grit. Also live for that infectious laugh of hers.
Eddie Orzechowski via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/12/20
I listen to these two every morning when I begin my day at work and let me just say... Gideon’s voice is HOT AF! I love their wit and humor and they are so on point with current events it’s almost scary! Sometimes I feel like they are both my besties and we are all just talking politics at the...Read full review »

I love listening to this podcast every morning. It’s part of my daily routine now as I get dressed. I wish there was a way to distinguish it from other similarly named podcasts, right now my google home wont play it because there’s other podcasts with similar names.
astrazombie via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/11/20
I wish there was a way to set this podcast as my alarm in the morning. I wake up, click play on WAD, and lay in bed until I can muster up enough energy to move. I love this podcast, short and sweet, gives me just enough info while I brush my teeth and pour my coffee. Keep it up!
kiramwebster via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/09/20
I love them. And I like how we only get ads a few times a week
Karinaner via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/06/20
The show was rather disappointing because the heavy handed leftist slant is very aggravating. As a Democrat it’s frustrating to see the hosts not rise above the fray by being clear voices in the fray and speaking truth to misinformation. Instead they speak snide comments and snarky asides.

Funny, informative, enjoyable and succinct!
Franky mate via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/05/20
I love this podcast. The hosts are great! Their humor really helps toy get through the overwhelming feeling of hopelessness after hearing the news.
MaceFace13! via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/05/20
The hosts are hysterical!
Bootydo's Mom via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/04/20
I love you two! I listen everyday at work. Thanks for your spin on today’s news. I feel like everything you say speaks to what I’m feeling and thinking. You rock!
Sarahcuse Davis via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/04/20
Great podcast! First thing I listen to when I reach my desk I’m the morning. Recommending to everyone. Love love love.

In this dark world, the WAD pod is there for me to make me chuckle with their uplifting music and deadpan take on the news. But when their outro was replaced with a standard “thanks for listening” it just did not feel as satisfying. The quirky “and thats how you XYZ” always made me laugh...Read full review »

I love you both, but I have to say I’m with Akilah on team WAD Squad... Sorry Gideon!! As a Canadian, I’m contractually obligated to say sorry, but I do mean it in this instance. Love the pod!
BroodyMamma via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 02/28/20
Jesus H Christ. Using Gwyneth Paltrow as a throw-away punchline? Giddy, giggly and too cute for words are you. Another Crooked Media podcast gets deleted.

Yay
My favorite color is red.

I begin every day with What A Day...no one else provides the insight, and truthiness (h/t Dubya)...but, c’mon guys, I greatly miss the two of you ending the deal as a duet! Bring back the jointly announced snarky ending, please...and I’ll gladly send sll the change thst is in my pocket in support
