Quicker posting, please

Love the show. Desperately wanted to hear yesterday shell with all the impeachment news but I just downloaded tonight 24 hours later. now I won’t listen. Also, can you talk Emily into doing a beat the press podcast? I’m leaving for Florida soon and won’t get to watch it.

Longtime listener but...

I have been listening to Jim and Margery for years but lately I find myself tuning out frequently. I generally agree with the viewpoints of both of them but over the last couple years, Margery has become a broken record. Everything out of her mouth is about women, me too, and is dripping with animus towards men. I’d be interested to hear a man go on this show and throw it back at her-point out the numerous flaws that are exclusive to women and explain why men are suspicious of women in general. Furthermore, I have heard several female callers going farther with the anti-male narrative and not being challenged by either of them. If they want to lose the male side of their audience, they’re on the right track.

Nancy koehn

I loved her comparison between Lincoln and the GOP. I’m not one to write reviews but I was really inspired by her passion. I’m a long time listener who now lives in South Carolina and appreciate being able to hear Jim and Margery. I love their chemistry!

My Opinion

I love the show. I would make a couple request. First would be to publish your podcasts quicker as this is how I usually listen to the show. Second I consider myself a moderate Republican and would love to see more of a balance on your guests. Sometimes it is 3-4 liberal Democrats praising the latest very left idea or a far right Republican who argues with the far left Democrat. I would love for the show to get guests who can discuss what the two sides should compromise and move the country forward on versus arguing their far right and left positions that are never going to pass

Love the show

I love the topics on the show. But I would say please let people finish their thought before you agree or cut them off as it is hard to follow the show and hear every point of view. I understand y’all want to speak your point but just let the person speaking finish. I understand it’s human nature as well. But at the same time it does make for a more natural conversation which I do like. But other than that. This is a great show for Boston.

Entertaining but...

Just once I’d like to hear a balanced conversation on this “public” radio program.

Margery is a liar. She owes Kirk Minihane an apology.

Awful

Terrible commentary and flat out false information by a group of fascists. Shirley Leung is a garbage reporter.

Great show but delayed ep uploading

My favorite thing to listen to daily. The content and show are a 15/10, it’s incredibly entertaining and informative. My only qualm with the BPR podcast app is that the daily episodes are never uploaded, well.... daily. I usually have to wait 2-3 days to hear days old episodes.

Terrific show with great hosts

Egan and Braude are smart, irreverent, engaged and funny. I look forward to their regular weekly guests like Sue O’Connell, Andrea Cabral, John King, Chuck Todd and Christopher Mather. Keep going!

Outstanding!

Margorie and Jim are the best radio duo! They are passionate and funny and they present a balanced view. It would be remiss to leave out all the great guests including Charlie Senate, Andrea Cabral, Nancy Koenig, John King... in and on ... amazing and informative And the mix of serious to lighthearted subjects is just the right mix.
