WSJ Tech News Briefing

Reviews For WSJ Tech News Briefing

Thanks for your coverage!
They provide the most useful tech information of the day.
Concise and highly relevant coverage.
The hosts deliver sharp and informative pieces. All the news is relevant without being repetitive if you also listen to other news podcasts. They keep it concise so it’s the perfect listen while you’re getting your day started. Highly recommend. Pair it with Money Briefing and What’s New.
Packed with highly relevant and interesting content, delivered in a Q&A format. Love it!
Very informative, concise, well-produced and well executed. No problems with delivery and playing. Ads are more listenable and briefer than most. Wish all podcasts were more like this!
Informative, concise... exactly what I need!
What happened to Tanya?? She is sorely missed. Had such a great voice on all the WSJ podcasts. This show lost all its personality. I used to like this podcast.
Very interesting and educational podcast. In one hour you can quickly catch up with tech news. This is a no nonsense podcast that is stimulating and informative

These should not be any longer than 10 minutes. Also, need to focus on a broad swathe of tech, and not just Facebook and Amazon.
In the recent episode of “Doomscrolling” you kept saying the on going Black lives matter protest is “bad news” and I feel by saying that, you’re being racist. This movement has been going on for centuries and I think now that their social media (podcast) to shed more light on the issue, you’re in turn being racist about it. Get your priorities right.
Voices and content are annoying
Ex. Amazon employees using seller info - the cleaning section was pretty generic and easy to find from a simple search. Why does it have to be on a wsj episode.
If you intend to be treated as journalists you are going to have to ask tougher questions when you interview and report on Facebook. Is it not relevant that a fact checker for Facebook in this matter worked with the Wuhan lab and has a conflict of interest?
I really want to like this podcast but I can’t get over the voices and speakers. It’s my own preference so not the fault of the podcast. Unfortunately unsubscribing.
This podcasts transition during COVID-19 has greatly distracted from the information that this podcast used to provide. I will likely try this podcast again in a couple months to see if it has transitioned back, but for now I will be unsubscribing
Great work, folks! Keep it up.
I listen daily and I find the topics useful and newsworthy until this morning...Kateri Jochum made a personal comment against her Colleague! Joanna Stern (whom I equally enjoy). Not newsworthy and inappropriate. Kateri should be concerned with how excited she should sound or be to do her own job. I will continue to listen but with a lot less respect for your host.
This is an excellent quality yet still highlight level briefing of current topics. Quality to mean is level of technical expertise and fewer “ums” at least by the hosts!

Love the podcast! Always start my day by walking the dog and listening to this podcast and What’s News (also by WSJ). Keep up the good work.
Unbearable. I switched to Bloomberg podcasts
In 10 minutes or so I get an overview of tech headlines and then a deep dive on one story. Efficient and useful!
Good Briefing to stay in touch with tech news
Basically a daily update of what’s going on in tech in the world.
Knowledgeable reporting on important, complex topics. Please keep it up.
Listen to it every day it’s on. A very good way to keep up with a manageable daily dose.
I listen everyday, tech news briefing does a great job keeping up with all things tech, startups, gadgets and more!
Perfect for my walk from the subway into my office to catch-up on the headlines. Thank you!
Tech. Red Briefing has been a fun way to stay up on things while driving to work. Thank you for a great, and free, podcast!
Short updates of around 10 minutes every day. Relevant and timely; interesting.
I enjoy this podcast every day!
The pieces summarise tech trends well. What seemed surprising in CES cover was the heavy focus on shifting the debate towards usability over Innovation.
I’ve never listened but I love it.
I like the main content but I don’t like how there are unnecessary extras. The news update is not interesting. I don’t mind ads because I understand that’s how you earn income. The volume levels between the ads and the main content are too different. The transition sounds are too loud and harsh as well.
Needs leveling. This podcast is way quieter than all others I listen to. I find myself turning up the volume to hear, then getting blasted when my next podcast or an ad starts. Please fix!!!
I used to enjoy this series but it’s now unlistenable. The volume of the ads blows my ears out. Painful.
I try and listen to this podcast every morning. Key word is try, as the audio levels are terrible. I have my volume all the way up and the podcast is still tough to hear.
The audio editing needs some attention--the actual content is soft, but the advertisements are so loud. Everything needs to be leveled out! I'd expect more from a national news outlet.
the content is great but when the advertisements come on my ears get blasted. please turn this down in editing.
Great content, perfect format and length but too many ads and more than that, for a respectable outlet like the WSJ... the ads sometimes are for some really stupid products. Don’t know how they find their way to the WSJ.
Love it but you barely get a minute or two of content before they shift to an add. A third of a podcast should not be adds. Otherwise it’s a five star podcast.
They kick off with advertised subject then flip into general purpose news before coming back to the topic. It just puts me to sleep and lose track why I was listening to this podcast. I wish they didn’t fill up with headlines unnecessarily.
My favorite is when she puns and immediately says “sorry” But seriously I really enjoy all your stories and interviews. Keep it up please! Thank you
It is just fantastic to listen to Deepa Seetharaman snivel and whine about hiring people for their skin color rather than the reason the person was hired was to actually get the job done. There are journalists who actually report the news then there are those who whine and snivel rather that actually report the news. For those of us who actually hire and fire people it would be great if we could get the news rather than listen to sniveling and opining about such things. Quite frankly if deepa does not like what’s going on simply start your own company.
The podcast is great and the previous album artwork was great. Why did you feel the need to hire a hack designer to phone it in?
Great content, the introduction of host & location in the beginning AND end seems unnecessary as each episode is just around 6-7 minutes.
Tanya is the best host for this podcast. It’s awesome when she gets together with other journalists and they end up joking and laughing with each other. Lots of personality, and a super informative podcast. Highly recommend.
