KPBS Midday Edition

Reviews For KPBS Midday Edition

Quickly becoming a daily listen for me. These staff reporters do such great work. I enjoy the production and theme music upgrade. Keep it up!
Thanks for bringing KPBS to the podcast world so I don’t ever have to miss another episode of Midday Edition. I appreciate the guest selection, the short and succinct interviews, the thoughtful questions, and of course, the local coverage. I love hearing about the upcoming weekend highlights with Beth Acomando, and the direct smooth coverage presented by Maureen Cavanaugh. My only caveat is that I sometimes have technical problems. This week, for example, I stopped receiving updates. It seems the subscription canceled and stopped downloading episodes on its own, without me doing anything. This is not the first time that happens. Sometimes there will be no audio when I play. The volume is typically very low compared to other podcasts I listen to, like Marketplace. They are little technical issues that keep happening. I hope this gets resolved. Updated May 2019: I like all podcasts in one. Less commercials, better flow. I just have to select one podcast, instead of five or more, when curating my feed. Love Jade Hindman. I can hear her loud and clear in my car. More diversity-driven coverage. Thank you!
The podcast is broken up into small segments now too many ads have been added feels like every 5 minutes. Other podcasts have ads about every 40 minutes. Great podcast with Maureen but too many ads. I am unscribing. Will check back to see if they are removed. Please change
Maureen = ❤️❤️❤️
Love how the format is evolving! Great pace by great producers and the wonderful host, Maureen. ;)
Hey reviewers — thanks very much for your comments! I work on this podcast as a back-end specialist. I’m working to make it better @SoCalian and @KCSanDiego. I’ve heard from you and others about the tech issues facing the listeners. I’ve made a few changes and I hope you enjoy them. Thanks again! I hope everyone enjoys the new format our great producers and host, Maureen Cavanaugh, are working on, too.
Let me start by saying I love the program. It gets five stars. However the Podcast only gets one. I have been listening to this Podcast for over a year and there hasn't been a week where at least one segment failed to download. I would say at least five segments fail on a typical week. The failure is not limited to the Podcast. You are also unable to stream the failed segment from the KPBS website. I started writing comments to KPBS, providing the segments that failed to download, but they have not corrected the issue. I listen to many Podcasts and this is the ONLY ONE that has ever had this problem. I urge listeners who have this problem to leave a one star review in hopes they finally fix this issue.
The contect is great, when you can access it. But episodes listed will frequently be unavilable for download.
Very insightful. Tom Fudge is a great host and I am very grateful they take the time to produce a podcast. The topics they cover range from political to pop culture. Each subject is explored at a depth only matched by Terry Gross from Fresh Air. What makes These Days better than Fresh Air is the fact that Fudge interacts on a more personal level with guests and the wide range of topic. He is not emotional, just more relatable. One last thing, If anybody from the show is reading this. More Film Club of the Air!!!! I cant get enough of the trio of Fudge, Marks and Accomondo. It is by far the best and most interesting views on movies, actors and directors. You guys play off each other so well. Please, please more Film Club!!
Though the stories are generally San Diego based, even non-San Diegans will enjoy the news, stories, insights, and interviews on These Days. Download it now, I'm tellin' you!
