Now Full of Garbage = Is Garbage
Was useful, now just a dumpby Simplepilot on Sep 13, 2014Rating: ★☆☆☆☆I listened to almost all the podcasts for valuable insights from their esteemed guests. Now, instead, I get - mindless banter - market updates that are, by definition, obsolete - sports updatesI did skip through them initially hoping they would change back, but I am giving up on it now. Just not worth it - takes 30 minutes to listen to 5 minutes of useful informationUnfortunate Changeby JEE_CFP on Sep 04, 2014Rating: ★☆☆☆☆I have to agree with other recent reviews: the change to hour-long segments (including the commercials, market updates, mindless banter, etc.) has GREATLY reduced the value of the Bloomberg podcasts!I originally thought the change was just due to somebody new filling in for someone on vacation. So I hung in there. But as time goes on, it's apparent that the change was deliberate and permanent.I've been a loyal listener for years (I even gladly paid for the service for a couple years). But in the current format, it's pretty much useless. I guess it's time to move on.retired engineerby Phil_in_Houston on Sep 04, 2014Rating: ★☆☆☆☆This was a great podcast for years (5 star). Unfortunately they have made 45 minute dumps of the radio show instead of short segments of the important interviews. I guess that is ok if you want up to the minute reports on yessterdays news. Sadly I can only listen to the occasional short interview that they still include.Went from Valuable Shorts to a Program Dumpby cyberbiker on Aug 19, 2014Rating: ★☆☆☆☆The kinds of people who listen to Bloomberg Surveillance are busy. We needed a few shorts of wisdom from Surveillance guests as the podcast use to be designed. However, it is now a segmented dump of the entire Bloomberg Surveillance radio program. Bad move!Bloomberg podcasts - Downgraded from Buy to Don't Botherby 53Consulting on Sep 21, 2014Rating: ★☆☆☆☆They've ruined their very strong podcasts. Instead of editing their media streams and providing interviews with guests they now simply cut 30-50 minutes continuously. Evidently they think people who download their podcasts to listen at a later date are interested in news and advertising bits from prior days. Pathetic.
