Michael Barbaro had NOTHING to worry about! No one will bolt from "The Daily"
I am a devout "Friend of the Pod"
I buy, wear, and give merch. I've given to "Fair Fight. Twice. I've gone to 3 "Tour" shows in 3 cities. I promoted "The Guys" as my husband refers to them.
I enjoy (most of) their content so I TRY to listen - AFTER listening to "The Daily" bc they do cover some different things.
But, EXCUSE ME, could that female voice be any more "Valley Girl" (and I grew up in the SF Valley)?!? "Headddd Linnnnes" ?!? Uh, puleezze... And GAMES...?!?😳
I LOVE 'em in Saturday morning w/Lovett, but, for daily news?!? In a 15-30 min segment?!?
And the general sing-song-y aspect is SO off-putting. 2 ADULTS. Delivering serious news singing together.
Sorry. No one I knows listens. And I would NEVER recommend it to ANYONE even my 21 yr old college senior daughter
I mean do you guys REALLY wanna be taken SERIOUSLY, by ADULTS, or are you trying to lasso in youngsters who require entertainment whilst teaching them that daily news is important.
