    One of the few media podcast that report the news versus a bias editorial. Thanks WSJ
  • MSTAN12
    Best podcast I have yet to find for daily news, and 2x a day woo hoo!
  • lovesong86
    This podcast lies through omission, favoring left-wing talking points. I prefer a balanced perspective.
  • glort
    Not quite up to the standards of the WSJ
    Generally an okay podcast. The “interviews” with WSJ journalists are often tedious. They explain things as if the audience is in middle school. Many of the journalists should not do audio interviews. I wonder if they are trying to be like the Daily from NYT? It’s the WSJ!

    Thoughtful Discussions
    Finally a news-based podcast that does away with hysterics and focuses on facts and meaningful discussion.

    Best Daily News
    This is a genuine professional news organization. Straight reporting. No advocacy (which is pretty much all you get from the news sources I used to rely on like NYT and NPR). Thank goodness there is still one place to turn for real information.
  • Jabetti
    Well worth my time!
    After listening to this show, I feel informed, up to date, and conversant on the topics that matter. Highly recommend!

    Introducing As We Work — Outdated
    Am I the only one in the 30 and under category that heard this episode & thought it was hugely tone deaf? I’m 25 years old and absolutely discuss salary with all of my friends, as well as my parents. Has the host ever used Glassdoor? FishBowl? It felt very outdated, and as if the host has never asked someone about their pay that is younger than 30. The interviewer’s line of questions also seemed bizarre (with shocked reactions at the notion of posting salary information public), and was cracking me up. I hope WSJ can get a better grasp on the what the labor economy looks like soon.

    Great synopsis!
    This is a quick 15 minute summary of the news with a short deeper dive into a big story.
  • Sophie Cheng
    Must listen every morning
    Great podcast for important daily news
  • cstu95
    Great & Unbiased
    Informative and without noticeable spin
  • maryjaye
    Concise & credible
    Review gives thoughtful perspectives on this war’s complex background, current plight and thoughts about bigger picture matters.
  • gzipp
    Just the news please
    Listened to this podcast for years, but can’t anymore after they forced a political stance on the Canadian trucks. I disappointed in myself for thinking they were different then CNN and MSNBC.
  • Just looking for balanced news
    WSJ should be embarrassed
    The WSJ use to be know for it’s integrity. This show has little if any integrity. It presents only stories or facts that support one side of the political spectrum. It feels like wsj is pushing an agenda that aligns with CNN or MSNBC instead of presenting the news of the day.
  • jlduan
    A lot of inaccurate stories.
  • Lax in the CLE
    My favorite daily news podcast
    Definitely an under-rated news pod. Fair, and generally without noticeable political bias.
  • Textdgh
    Lost two stars for sloppy reporting
    January 20, 2022 edition with Eliza Collins shows that the Wall Street Journal needs a whole lot of work when it comes to facts. She said the Republicans “feel” that the states should be in charge of how they vote. Uh… they don’t feel that way, the Constitution explicitly states that. Please educate your young reporters to report correctly and not how they feel about things. I am a paying subscription holder and hate to think that I’m wasting my money. Do better, please.

    Great daily news source
    This podcast is part of my daily routine. Love the news stories each morning and evening and the thoughtful reporting on big headlines. Keep up the great work!
  • YooZ
    Great news podcast

  • Lazy Phone People
    Whack job news
    You are a joke when it comes to good information playing down a virus that has killed 1 million people should be seen as a trader too you’re country .

    Amazing Daily podcast
    This podcast does an amazing job at keeping you informed about what is going on in the world and is as close to objective as I have found. They may have a business friendly leaning but that is it. If you are interested in business, markets and money, this is an amazing show for you, enjoy!
  • MikeBoiler
    China Business Crackdown
    Wow, shocker of an “interview” with a CCP operative who is embedded in the London School of Economics. Who knew the Communist Party is all-in for transparency, equity and economic fairness for the average citizen?? The real laugher is when she claimed, unchallenged, that Chinese citizens all trust the Government with their personal information - more than any private company. Who needs troll farms when the WSJ facilitates and promotes government propaganda?
  • Bacon:-)
    Good but…
    It’s a pretty snappy presentation of news highlights, but every now and then you have to endure an interview with a self-proclaimed expert trying to pass off a political point as high-brow academia (case: Fertoli’s interview with Harvard’s Claudia Golden on 12/27/21). I stopped listening to NPR because of rubbish like this. Usually WSJ does a good job of avoiding this useless information, so their gatekeeping could be better.
  • Bookkeeper.
    Geez. This news is not useful, helpful or needed. Btw. Where is the news on the Maxwell trial.
  • schwingding
    Selective news?
    How come you seem to avoid reporting Biden’s legislative setbacks? Was the suspension of Biden’s effort to pass his social programs bill this week not news? Was the CBO’s scoring of the bill this week not news? Was the parliamentarian’s ruling on the immigration portion of the bill not news? This is not the first time and in fact there is a well established pattern of simply not reporting Biden’s setbacks. Unlike the opinion division, The WSJ news division seems to have sold its soul and is trending woke and CNNish. Where is your journalistic self respect? Listen to Potomac Watch instead to get your news.

    Love the content but MY WORD THE FB ADs
    I absolutely love WSJ and the quick hit content of this podcast. That said, the repetitious Facebook ad every beginning, middle and end of the show is getting to be unbearable. I think I actually have the ad memorized by now because they play it so many times. I have never had a company pepper it’s audience with constant reminders that “they take down bad actors online” - it’s frankly sketchy that they feel the need to remind us so many times per day that they are doing the bare minimum on security. If I were FB, I would completely revamp this ad strategy. Less is more friends.
  • Jhobo1234
    Could be great
    If only they had any ads other than the pro-facebook propaganda they got in circulation right now then this would be an awesome pod. Instead its just so so so bad
  • Sebtran
    Horrible! Way too many Facebook ads!
    Have been a loyal listener for years, but have to remove app due to liberal viewpoints and brainwashing ads!!
  • tired of FB talking points
    Drop Facebook
    Please drop the Facebook add or I will stop listening.
  • Xiaolin-Chen
    So low to allow Facebook to Propaganda
    Every clear mind knows Facebook is bad news, we should never use it. Bye bye, low WSJ.
  • smokejumper2014
    Good podcast but can’t tolerate the Facebook adds
    Like the podcast, but I’m dropping you.due to your advertisements for Facebook. Facebook is too insidious and despicable to support or tolerate. Goodbye.
  • petermek
    Subscribers have to listen to terrible repetitive commercials fromFacebook
    Not sure if you pay for the WSJ why you would have to listen to commercials on a Podcast. Very annoying. In addition justvwas so proud to subscribe considering the reveal on Facebook aka Meta. Now we have to listen to adds again again and again stating that Facebook is doing a great job.

    Stop the Constant Facebook Advertising Propoganda
    Generally enjoy this podcast but the bulk Facebook advertising claiming they are the biggest fighters of bad intentions online makes me want to vomit. I suppose this is the highest bidder for advertising and that’s all these guys care about but it’s pretty insufferable.
  • Catholic Again
    Facebook ads
    Strange that you lead with Facebook ads while your leading reports state how Facebook is not protecting youths and others on what they allow to be posted. The ads diminish your reporting accuracy.
  • Uvervji
    Does the Wall Street Journal require everyone they interview to answer each question starting with the word “so”?
  • do better 123456789
    Will boycott all you do & any advertisers
    Publishing Trump letter that is all lies!!! You are inciting violence & promoting & activating future riots. SHMAME ON YOU!!
  • dont cancel us
    Weather was nice in FL last weekend for Columbus Day. What weather delays??
  • Carl@RP
    Good start for my day
    This is a good summary and discussion of the major news of the day. Excellent production quality, mostly, from the best news source going, IMO. A quibble is that some of the guest interviewees are hard to understand, as their enunciation is sloppy. I feel like political bias is largely absent—as appropriate for a news organization.
  • susieberrie
    It's funny...
    That they're reporting all this negative news about Facebook and yet they play ads by Facebook
  • Bailey Marchelle
    VERY efficient news.. to a fault
    I appreciate the news coverage, but the pace of this podcast goes too quick for my taste. The reporters are jumping to the next topic before I can absorb what was just said.
  • Abdellat
    I value the WSJ. However, these WSJ podcasts could be so much better. They seem to be trying to appeal to a younger demographic and so, as is usually the case in these unskilled attempts, they dumb it down and use goofy 20 something talk when they discuss issues. The lack of background and the knowledge gap in the reporting is breathtaking. They don’t know what they don’t know.
  • Ncorwyn
    My go to
    I like the tone of this newscast. No drama, just information with a business focus. Thanks WSJ!!
  • Jeff in thai
    Absolutely awesome
    This is such a great podcast. You get some quality information in a short amount of time which is key. It’s the Wall Street Journal what else can I say? This goes without saying – A really nice job
  • show only my trnsactns!
    Lengthy guest segments have to go
    I think these might be new but they’re driving me away. Hope we can omit those for the great core product of brief, broad news updates. Thx
  • Carlafcleuropa
    My favorite news podcast. A great morning no update.
  • In Search of What's Happening
    At the core, it's fantastic
    The core news stories (about the first three or four minutes) are a great summary of what is happening. However, when the go to their reporters in the field, sometimes their politically leanings shine through which disappoints.
  • n60340z7
    Do Any Adults Work There
    Slick production and cute stories.
  • agustinochoa19
    Top news, delivered fairly
    I’ve been a listener for a while, and I’ve stuck around and truly appreciate this podcast as one of my news sources thanks to their selection of the top news and how fairly (and objectively) they deliver the content.
  • fbshcbd
    Annemarie Fertoli
    Annemarie Fertoli has the voice of an angel. This podcast gets to the point.
  • jjmc2001
    Good content but annoying contributors
    This podcast has excellent coverage and professional hosts. Unfortunately they have segments from regular contributors who clearly are not broadcast journalists. They generally use voice inflections that are very unprofessional and would be eliminated with training. Sometimes called uptalk or upspeak. Either train these folks or hire a professional to read the copy. Sounds like amateur hour.
