    Goodbye Michael

    It’s a great podcast, don’t get me wrong, but god almighty Michael Barbaro’s voice is annoying. Talks too fast, sounds pretentious, and his interjections sound inappropriate.

    Really interesting!

    News is hard to listen to these days. I appreciate The Daily and it’s commitment to reporting important and generally well researched stories. I have particularly resonated with the pieces that take us into others’ lives and open up the world a little more. Love listening!

    An Aggressive New Approach to Childhood Obesity

    I echo my fellow commenters in relaying my extreme disappointment in this episode’s lack of journalistic integrity and blatant spread of misinformation. I’m a longtime listener and believe that Barbaro and his team generally approach each topic as important as this one from all sides. Not sure who dropped the ball on this one but this episode dangerously missed the mark in regard to fully researching the topic, including the dangerous side effects and implications of the interventions recommended. At worst, this episode reinforced the anti-fat bias that’s already deeply entrenched in the medical industry. At best, it was sloppily underresearched and poorly reported. I have decided to unsubscribe as a result of this episode. Please, if you wish to regain our trust, take another turn at this topic, which is important and deserves better research and attention.

    Often wrong and uninformed

    This podcast does a great job at talking politics. Most recent episode on black holes and the universe… wow. Unfortunately bleak, bland and boring. The universe is fascinating! The guy being interviewed is terrible, I can’t imagine that he’d have a teaching job. Not a mention of the JWST?! And the dissolution of the Big Bang theory? …just wowThe newer Amazon rainforest episode is so boring I almost drove off the road. Get rid of that orator and writer

    A Brand, Not a News Source

    The George Santos campaign was a detritus and clear case of political fraud. And when The Times failed to do its job, a reporter—who probably should have been fired—went on The Daily to literally blame the politicians for not telling her what to report! Apparently because if isn’t in the oppo research, it won’t find its way into The Times. [seriously, go back and listen: 1/5/23. This is basically what the reporter said!] These people don’t investigate; they report what the favored powerful tell them to and then posture as if they were the only place a respectable person would go to learn about the world. Case in point: the ad spot with Sue Craig is the most sanctimonious piece of garbage I have ever heard. I honestly can’t imagine how anyone, regardless of ideology, is still buying this. The Daily (and those silly adds) exist to make news consumers feel as if they’re getting the insider’s perspective on what real journalism looks like. But the truth is just as Robert Fisk once put it: “we might as well name our newspapers ‘officials say’ …[they] do not challenge power anymore.”

    An agressive approach to obesity - horrible

    This episode is so disgusting to listen to that I had to turn it off. Calling obesity a “chronic disease” is the societal perception problem that leaves us in a position where CHILDREN are getting medication designed to stop them from eating. Fat people are a kind of person, not a disease. Do better.

    Obesity episide

    Woefully superficial. The “expert” seemed light with respect to having a strong command of the subject matter. Her intention seemed to promote the guidelines rather than to provide a comprehensive perspective on the topic. Obesity intervention for a 2 year old? The side effects of the medications were not fully addressed. A disappointing episode at best.

    Disappointed in childhood obesity reporting

    This episode was awful. There was some extremely backwards logic like kids should lose weight because of weight stigma, effectively if you are bullied it’s your fault. I am so disappointed in the ignorant reporting and lack of critical thinking.

    Treating children with obesity

    Is the host working for big pharma??? Asked not one common sense question about how genetics argument for uncontrolled obesity is completely refuted by the fact that almost no children were obese ten years ago!!! When a study gave one group of children intervention at school did not work, host neglected the obvious question about whether calories and food quality was controlled during home hours! Pathetic excuse for journalism? Infomercial format.

    Podcast Jan 26 reg new guidelines on childhood obesity

    In general I like the podcast and listen to it. However today's podcast was extremely disappointing. The host failed to ask one single challenging or honestly curious question. He was completely unprepared or didn’t care to bother. Meanwhile the guest seemed to think that whispering and sounding concerned made her sound empathetic and knowledgeable. But in reality her answers were shallow and lacked intelectual rigour.

    Good production value but clearly biased

    I like listening to get the inside scoop on stories I wouldn’t otherwise hear. However, there are so many episodes in which the people they are interviewing make clearly left-wing ideological or political statements. The hosts never check them or ask necessary, and frankly obvious follow up questions. The bias of this show to the left shines brightly through their veiled attempts at presenting as down-the-line. A veil not made any thinner by having conservative voices on a few times a year. You can bet your bottom dollar that every host, guest and source voted for Obama, Hillary, and Biden. It’s blatant whenever they cover a story on abortion, immigration, wars, and even health related news like COVID or obesity. It’s unfortunate to see what was once the greatest news paper in the world slowly drift into a political and semi-elitist echo chamber.

    Obesity in children episode is irresponsible journalism

    Been a long time listener for years, but todays episode on obesity in children was ignorant and irresponsible. The guest obviously had incredible biases that were never examined. She admitted that there is no direct causal relationship between obesity and health problems and yet continued to drag kids through the mud. There is no way an adult should be allowed to put a child through an irreversible life changing surgery without their consent that has no proven link to improving their life. Disgusting.

    As someone who is center left, it is hard to stomach how blatantly one-sided this is.

    Reduce or remove mood music interludes?

    I enjoy and rely on the excellent reporting of The Daily. Please consider reducing or removing the mood music interludes that have become intrusive, inappropriate, and irritating. It’s the worst kind of editorializing, and it’s making The Daily sound like infotainment.

    Lost its way…

    I’ve been a listener since day 1 in early 2017. This podcast originally launched as brief insight into what you’ll hear about in the news that day. Over the past few years, transitioned into deeper researched topics that lose focus on the immediate news of the day. If you want to have a podcast with more in-depth topics, by all means do that, but make it a separate podcast and bring back the “daily” aspect of “The Daily”. For me, NPR’s “Up First” has become the spiritual successor for this podcast’s original charter.

    Good Show, Annoying Host

    Sometimes interesting topics, however the host is insufferable. His long pauses, and the fact that every other word he says is “hmm” or “ huh. I’ve had to change shows many times because it’s so distracting. How do professional broadcasters not listen to their own work and work on this stuff?

    Daily Dose

    It’s hard to overstate how ingrained The Daily has become to my morning routine. I actually look forward with excitement about what episode it’ll be today. Every single episode w Michael is a GEM. A gift. He is the absolute best - his tone, his questioning, his demeanor, everything. Sabrina on the other hand - thumbs down. I do not enjoy her episodes at all and am always so crestfallen in those first 30 seconds when I hear she will be the host for the day. In fact I now often skip the Sabrina episodes. I am sure she is a stellar journalist but not a great host for this format at all. More Michael please!
