    Please discontinue the emotion, bring back use of more traditional titles

    I am discomfited by three things in 13 Jan. episode:1) Rachel Martin’s emotional tone (every day)2) the choice to present Rep. Norma Torres’ “running for my life” sound bite - although it may represent the truth, it also demonstrates an arguably poor choice as a parent to expose that to her child while in the midst of the lockdown, not to mention that she describes terminating the call immediately upon making the statement- in the absence of more facts in that same moment of reporting, it encourages listeners to paint an even more bleak and dark picture is what actually occurred, which was already plenty bleak and dark. We need no more fan on the flames that separate us. 3) Frank Langfitt referring to a gentleman (Dr. if memory serves) reporting on oxygen supplies as a “guy.” This has become a common practice in NPR reporting. I find the familiarity and informality of this language to be unprofessional and unworthy of a news organization as reputable and celebrated as my beloved NPR. (On that note, Ms. Martin often addresses her colleagues by their more familiar and shortened names/nicknames, an insight into the intimacy of their personal connections that I find inappropriate in the professional setting of news reporting.)I understand and honor that my opinion is one and may not represent a majority. My hope is that these “stylistic” elements of NPR journalism be purposeful. It would be a shame if they be the result of relaxing attitudes borne of a sense of familiarity that a majority of listeners not actually share. Thank you for considering my comments, though I confess I am not certain that I make this review in a venue that reach the editors ... 🤦🏻‍♀️

    The New York Times is BETTER!

    What the F*** does NPR do?! Nothing they just regurgitate what other news organizations say. There is no news. Type of news organization that reports on January while not realizing it is already March. Summary: Real news but FAKE news organization.

    Love it!

    NPR is well known for being the least biased news organization in the US. That reality and facts happen to be agreeing with the a “leftist” perspective should tell people something. It’s not an echo chamber, it’s reality. Come join us in it! NPR is a good way to reacquaint yourself with it. :)

    Be careful what you listen to

    There has been a shift in this podcast over the years or I am just becoming more informed and finally realizing the left leaning reporting. I recommend that every American use multiple sources to get their information. There is so much bias in most of the media outlets that there is rarely reporting on the news. Be careful where you get your information from, research it yourself and don’t be sheeple.

    If you want the typical establishment viewpoint..

    This podcast offers nothing more than the typical msnbc/cnn establishment viewpoint. If you want to branch out and learn something new, check out the Hill’s YouTube show “Rising.”

    Clear leftist slant

    Political “news” with a leftist slant, recommend listening to this alongside a right-leaning pod like Potomac Watch to get a balanced perspective. Shameful that they present themselves as unbiased, especially since they are funded by our tax dollars. Tamara Keith is the worst offender in this regard; her “analysis” consistently comes across as biased, opinionated commentary. I would consider donating if this podcast began presenting a more fair, balance perspective, but the hosts all appear to be lost in their own echo chamber.

    Consistent, Quality Reporting

    The NPR Politics Podcast has been one of my go-to sources for independent, unbiased reporting of politics for many years. I’ve heard the reporters on the podcast change as they moved between assignments or positions. The quality and unbiased reporting have stayed consistent. I also enjoy the historical aspects and relevance they often bring to politics to further enlighten listeners.Their calm, cool, collected approaches and handling of every news story (especially during the Trump era) are preferable to the loud, constantly breaking news updates of cable news. I will continue to support NPR as they add value to my life everyday with their reporting. Below, I’ll rebut negative reviews:Now, more than ever, many organizations like NPR are hurting for funding as a result of economic impacts from the pandemic. With a high-level podcast platform for NPR, they are speaking on behalf of NPR stations across the country to ask for funding in a down year to also keep their people employed and our favorite programs on the air. While politics has continued to move farther right overall in this country, it’s not surprising for someone leaving a bad review to think NPR is “left” when it’s remaining unbiased in the center. When something is in the middle that’s being viewed from the far right, of course their perspective will be that it is to the left. Also, NPR reporters routinely disclose when they are reporting on someone or something that is tied to funding, sponsoring, or underwriting NPR in some way so as to avoid any appearances of potential favoritism within reporting. The efforts to maintain journalistic integrity are constantly on display if you are familiar with the basic tenets of journalism. Keep up the great work, NPR Politics Podcast!!!

    Really like this, but...

    Firstly, for those of you who think NPR is funded by the US taxpayer, please note that only 2% of operating costs are from government sources, and that tiny portion comes from grants that they have to compete for. 98% of the money required is provided through listener donations and underwriting. Don’t get it twisted. If you don’t believe me, look it up. If your news source doesn’t admit when they get something wrong, its not news, it’s propaganda. NPR sounds left to some only because they’ve been marinating in right wing distortions and lies for way too long. The truth is just the truth - it’s neither left nor right.Moving on. I listen to this podcast every week. My only complaint is totally my baggage, but I REALLY find the “can’t let it go” segment so cringy that I rush to pause then delete the podcast before I have to hear a second of it. Otherwise, love it!

    Superficial. Try Ken Rudlin’s podcast instead.

    I have been a devotee of this podcast since back when it featured Ken Rudin and Ron Elving. They brought humour, insight and decades of knowledge and experience to its content. In short, they taught me things I didn’t know about US politics and political history. In contrast, the knowledge and understanding of the current crop of younger hosts is incredibly shallow. They often seem more focused on pop culture and fashionable progressive causes than politics - notwithstanding the title of the podcast they inherited. I have largely stopped listening to this podcast now but fortunately Ken Rudin is still available on his own podcast elsewhere. While his own biases have increasingly started to show in recent years, his knowledge and passion for American politics is greater than all the hosts of this podcast combined.

    Podcast NPR

    I listen to you a variety of podcasts to listen to different points of views. I don’t have Television. For coverage of timely news and the White House your show is the best way to get the why’s. I am a Democrat and I notice you interview a lot of Democrats. Some I’m not sure what politics they follow. I have so many questions about the Republicans. I would like to hear views back to back. You ask Great questions! The republicans are prejudiced against people of color and yet they support Them, I don’t understand?. Your coverage of the transition of power and why who was picked is insightful. Meeting them and then hearing them describe what they are doing really gives me hope that the Government will again move forward. I am retired now and I have been doing campaigning to save the planet all my life. They are finally getting a good understanding of what I have worked for and taking action. Too many people have had to die for them to finally get to this point. Biden has his work cut out for him. Thank you for all your hard work.

    Ban yard signs

    Previous NPR fan here...used to love Fresh Air w Terri Gross but then had to unsubscribe bc she could only obsess about Trump - now this one is gone too. Keep living in your echo chamber NPR - believe it or not conservatives once found your podcasts informative...clearly not a place where all voices can be heard or represented.

    My daughter works here

    From the time she was tiny...my daughter would hear NPR (yes she complained) when we were in the car. What 5 year old in their right mind wants to hear about politics when they could be jamming to music?. Fast forward 15 years and the neurons in her head have realigned. She graduated with a political science degree and just finished an internship with NPR Political Desk. I saw how happy she was and how grateful she was for the guidance, inspiration as support of the hosts! That’s what I call the influence of great journalists who have graced the studios of NPR and provided such mentorship to the young! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you !!!!!
