Bob and Andrew really know what they're talking about and the guests really seem to enjoy themselves on the show.

Best podcast around!
by seweitzman

About the News is my new favorite podcast. The hosts are great, the guests are wonderful, and the discourse about the important issues facing modern media and reporting is simply incredible. In particular, the Marty Baron interview opened my eyes to how journalism has changed over the past thirty years. I highly recommend that you give this a listen.

Entertaining and educational
