anything consistently over thirty minutes is not being considered here
I don’t listen to all of these everyday, but I did try for a few days to listen to them all in order to have a better understanding of their differences and what they cover. While listening, I tend to look for a few things:
I’ve been a devoted listener to The Daily and Today, Explained since they began. Given that fact, those shows have probably influenced what I expect and look for, so it’s no surprise they found themselves on top.
What’s Next from Slate, easily meets the four points above behind The Daily and Today, Explained. I’ve never really read Slate, but this is still a perfect morning show for me.
To round out the ones I’ve still kept around, Today in Focus and The Intelligence provide a nice British perspective on world news, and ProRata does a great job providing a quick fix at the “intersection of Tech, Politics, and Business,” as they say.
Up First is a nice super quick morning news show, but I feel like they try to put too much news into their ten minutes, resulting in none of them having enough time to breathe and feel informative
Thanks to @vasta for sharing Front Burner and The Big Story to provide a Canadian perspective. For a Canadian, these would probably rank much higher, but with that being said, I really enjoy The Big Story and appreciate being able to hear from other places in the world.
If there’s anything else you listen to let me know so I can check it out and include it here.
