Good, but vocal fry

Informative and interesting, but veering a bit left at time. Pretty much everyone on this podcast has off-the-charts vocal fry ... why?

It’s ok

2 pt series on 1 on of the best hedge fund ever & they spend all the time taking about how one of the members is a Trump supporter instead of talking about their methods, strategies, etc.

LEFT POLITICALLY

I use to love this podcast. The blatant tilt to the left is just like every other mainstream media outlet. Surprised by the dive into politics. It’ll hurt their ratings. Not worth your time.

Nice Topic Selection - Journalists Struggle to Not Project Bias Some

Uhg! Learn how not to come off politically biased. At times the journalist try to not be biased, but they are starting to try to appeal to one political bent. This last story about the man who hacked the market is an example. Let’s get back to letting people decide for themselves what they think about politics and, at the end of the day, be professional. That’s the only thing I want to pay for.

Niña Belis

Honestly I’m judging this podcast. Does this lady truly not realize that fed agents would show up at your door? This is absolutely absurd. FBI just doesn’t randomly call you.

Great Content

The research and investigatory work is very good. The narration or interviewing could be improved. The interviewers speak in uptalk so that a statement actually sounds like a question. This diminishes the credibility of the journalist. The vocal fry technique of the guests is equally distracting. It could be due to the relative youth of the journalists and their guests. Again, the content is great. The delivery could be improved.

Awesome podcast

Best weekly podcast. The Daily by NYT used to be my favorite by a landslide but as they’ve tailored more to the political crowd, this one has become an easy replacement. Interesting topics, great & easy to understand reporting, and the perfect amount of depth. Thanks Ryan, Kate, and team!

Good context, clear bias

I’ve always viewed the WSJ as fairly neutral politically but these journalists have a clear liberal leaning. Its unfortunate, because the content is interesting and well produced.

Disappointed

Disappointed by the liberal angle these podcasts take. Not necessarily looking for a conservative slant, but for example, to cover the CA wildfires and only focus on PGE and not the role the state overseers have played leaves a big part of the story unreported.

Great Podcast - But Where is the Positivity?

This is becoming my favorite podcast. I’m anxiously waiting for my commute home, so I can listen to the recent daily coverage. Additionally, this is an incredible partnership between WSJ and Gimlet. I’m quite impress at how WSJ is still keeping relevant across all distribution channels!My only major critique is the lack of positive/inspiring topics covered vs mainly focusing on scandals & controversial news. I don’t dispute some of these topics need to be covered (e.g. US politics). However, it doesn’t hurt to hear a piece every now and then that inspires the positivity in human kind.

Extremely biased

I found many of the episodes to be more about political agendas with an extreme liberal bias. If your looking for straight forward financial topics and discussions then look somewhere else. If your looking for liberal dribble to reinforce your idiotic wok self grandiose point of view... then you found the right show. HORRIBLE!

Excellent topics, digestible, 5-star journalism podcast

Enjoying every topic so far, the timely coverage of recent news, the easily digestible length and pace (I like their “tone” and style of interviewing). I’m picky about podcast content and The Journal has been my new favorite and would recommend to anyone who likes to ponder a bit deeper on current business-related events. I’m reading many bad reviews here about bias... Isn't it worthwhile to learn more about ANY side of a current topic? I guess since I listened to this best-in-class journalism podcast I simply can’t form my own opinion... this was simply the only option for me to hear the news... (eye roll)

California vs Trump: cars

I was disappointed that this telling “a story” not “the story”. I expect a better product from the journal. One example, President Obama uses science; President Trump does not. There are other points like this. I look to the journal to give me info on both sides of the argument, but this was standard was not met in this vignette. I am a 30 year plus print subscriber. Maybe I need to re-evaluate all my WSJ products.

Journal app a swing and a miss

Story details are delivered at a stultifying pace and yet then the main point is repeated as if the journalists feel the audience somehow can’t keep up? For a news organization this product is insulting

Disappointing

I’ve been a direct subscriber to WSJ news site for many years, but am very disappointed in the liberal bias of their “Journal” podcasts. As an example, the story angle on “In the Dark and on Fire in California” was distinctly one-sided. I live in California, have been affected by the blackouts, and the fires are serious newsworthy events… But the WSJ’s jumping on the bandwagon of placing full blame on PG

Sounds like NPR is running this show.

While the interviewers voices are not the typical NPR affected annoying millennial skeptical of anything conservative ,I am confused as to why the WSJ would allow gimlet to partner with them . Will listen to a few more episodes but so far not impressed .
