The audio on the recordings are very low. I like to listen to the show during my morning commute. When I turn the volume up enough to listen to everyone talking, any other audio alerts, such as from a traffic app, are nearly full volume. Please fix the recording volume.
Unfortunately like other traditional shows, they have to give time to political pundits who don’t answer the question but talk over other guests just to get their talking point out. I like to just go to the end and listen to the round table.
Enjoy listening to podcast. But please Chuck, when introducing your panel/guests, slow down, speak up, and enunciate. As you introduce your panel, you sometimes trail off, and talk way too fast. You know who they are, we don’t Chuck.
I am a die hard, but at least once a month they don’t put up the podcast until three days after the fact by which time it’s old news. Is it that complicated? NBC can’t afford to hire a 22 year old kid to upload a fricken podcast. Totally unacceptable.
Come on guys. The reason I subscribe to your podcast is to hear what your guests and commentators have to say on Sunday not Monday or later. Old news is as bad as fake news. I don’t subscribe to the CBS or ABC Sunday shows for just that reason they are tardy, MTP usually is not. Don’t disappoint please.
Greenwood is a neighborhood in Tulsa, Oklahoma. As one of the most prominent concentrations of African-American businesses in the United Statesduring the early 20th century, it was popularly known as America's "Black Wall Street" until the Tulsa race riot of 1921, in which the Oklahoma state government with the assistance of Tulsa's white residents massacred hundreds of black residents and razed the neighborhood within hours. The riot was one of the most devastating massacres in the history of U.S. race relations, destroying the once thriving Greenwood community.
In this age of post truth craziness, Meet the Press and Chuck Todd is the antidote. Fair and balanced approach to the issues, top rate guests, and great insight from the host and panels. I’ve been watching MTP since Russert was the host and Chuck Todd is now my favorite.
What I appreciate about this podcast is I’m sometimes just too busy with kids and life to watch the show live. But Chuck Todd has taken a stance that he is going to take the show to where the people are. The show’s podcast is released a few hours after the show airs and is on demand as quickly as any other. He’s the journalist this country needs and I can’t think of any other working journalist who is his equal. If you aren’t watching or listening to this show, do your country a favor and start.
Wow the mix was really off this week. The regular show audio was really low so I had to adjust my volume to the max to hear it at a regular volume but then the bumpers were at their regular level so when they came in between segments, they were super loud. Ear piercingly loud. Had to lower the volume for 'em but then when the regular show started playing, it was too low and I had to max it out again. Had to do this at the start and end of each segment. Audio levels matter!
It's great to have a show like this that reviews the week and stresses what's important. Chuck Todd is great. So please tell whoever mixes the theme music with the video audio to turn down the theme! Every time there's a clip going into or out of a break, all we hear is the theme song.
I do not have a TV. It would be great if they would post this podcast by 12 noon EST the same day it is broadcast.
ABC's "This Week" is usually posted in a timely manner. I still don't have the podcast from Sunday July 23 yet and it is Monday July 24 at 12 noon EST.
The political news is old within 24 hours.
Not impressed with the delay. Buy a TV to listen to this one folks. The podcast people are asleep at the wheel.
Pure political left wing bias. Typical. I deleted this podcast. Chuck Todd has ruined this once fair and balanced Sunday show. Chuck Todd is a devoted liberal fascist, nothing more. This being the same Chuck Todd that admitted to seeing a lot of anti-Clinton posters billboards and signs while on the campaign trail but didn't report on it "because he didn't want to hurt Mrs Clintons feelings". Are you kidding me? News is news Chuck. So that's what you get with this crappy show. A liberal agenda that no longer straight shoots.
TRY TO REST IN PEACE TIM RUSSERT
(God knows it must be difficult with Todd at the helm)
Best show on tv but I have a conflict and can never watch it live. I prefer listening but it often takes days an occasionally never posts. Why? How can such a high profile program be so unprofessional on this media?
Chuck Todd can be a douce and pander to liberals, while talking over conservatives, but overall it's a great show because they do a good job of getting people from both sides on. One of the few shows in today's political climate that does that.
To hear his interviews makes me cringe. Constantly interrupts with a smug attitude, never connects with his highlight interviewee, just his panel. Ugh, a bore. Won't deny he knows politics but he is so obnoxious and his self grandiosity is nauseating.
Not useful if not posted in a timely manner. The "new normal" seems to be that the Sunday podcast isn't posted until Tuesday or Wednesday each week. By then, the news is no longer timely. Why can't podcast be posted on Sunday like all of the other Sunday shows?
Come on Chuck. What is taking so long to post the episodes on the podcast? It's Thursday and last weeks show is still not up. The previous week didn't get up until Tuesday.
I love the show but the news is moving so fast that the delays makes your show old news by the time it's posted.
5 stars for the reporting.
0 stars for late posting.
Meet the Press audio engineer for podcast needs to work on balance and sound level. Several instances the theme music overwhelms the people talking. Other instances, the volume skyrockets badly. Just listen to latest edition.
Let me be clear. I LOVE this show. My one star review is related to how long it takes the episode to release to the podcast. A Sunday morning news show that your listeners are still waiting to hear Tuesday morning is not relevant. This should be available no later than Sunday night.
The folks running the show seemed to be doing better with getting the audio posted more quickly, for a while. This weeks was delayed, and now has some major audio levels on the bumper music coming in and out of brake. Come on guys, this is such a great show! Worthy of better attention than is being paid to it.
I usually watch the show when it airs Sunday mornings, but when I can't be in front of a TV at that time I rely on the podcast version of the show. My main complaint is that the audio quality is soooo shaky. Volume fluctuates for no reason, theme music completely overtakes whoever is supposed to be speaking over it in what I know is the lead-in to a commercial break. Bottom line, would be a GREAT podcast if those issues got fixed.
I'm updating my review to lower it to one star. Russia is hacking our democracy, our president is committing treason...but no, just put these episodes up online whenever you get a chance. Is Monday good for you guys?
Seriously, if MTP wants to appeal to a younger audience, it needs to step up its podcast game. It's 5 PM and still nothing has been posted. Come on MTP. Face the Nation is killing you in this department.
Was a fan of the show since the Tim Russert days. Now the show is ridiculously biased. They put too much effort into substantiating controversies, and cherry picking quotes here and there. Not worth your time.
As long as Chuck Todd is the host, will not listen or watch. Debating is one thing, he takes it too far. By and large, argues with his guests instead of interviewing. Too often interjects his own personal beliefs and ideals. Way too partisan and non-objective. Try as I may, it's just too much!
Fantastic show and am glad I can hear the show as a podcast. Last week's episode with Kellyanne Conway had a glitch in it right at the cited section of Todd and Conway going at it over his laughing at the "alternative facts" word and her coming up with it. Was it just a coincidence that my podcast had a glitch at that point or was that glitch on purpose?
