I am a busy student and find that I sometimes have a hard time staying on top of current events. While I do spend a few minutes each day reading NY Times headlines on Twitter, I find that radio is the best way for me to digest news.
I'm looking for the podcast equivalent to the NYT Week In Review page
. I currently listen to the 7AM ET News Summary podcast
but would like to listen to a slightly more detailed show that comes out every 4-7 days and is in the 20-45 minute range.
I just realized that Weekend Edition is available in podcast form, so I'll check that out. But if I recall correctly, it's a little bit more featury and slightly lighter. Ideally, I'd like something that's more news updates than features [On preview: maybe Weekend Edition Saturday
is more what I'm looking for. Still, any other suggestions would be great].
I live in the US but am not opposed to a global news update program. I don't need sports updates of any kind.
[I was inspired to ask this question by this thread
, which is great, but I'm not looking for an irreverant show].
