Fab 5 Podcasts: Up First by NPR
Number three in my Fab 5 Podcasts: “Up First” by NPR.
This show provides just enough commentary of why you should care about the things that will be news for the day. The hourly NPR News Hour, featured as #2 in the “Fab 5”, podcasts kind of serve as incremental follow ups on those topics introduced by UpFirst.
Frequency: Daily, posted at or just before 5:30 AM
Duration: 10-15 minutes. This duration and the time it is released each day serves to fill the dead air during a workout or while getting ready for the day, brushing your teeth, shaving, or whatever!
Host Carisma: N/A - different personalities from show to show.
Content: This podcast goes hand in hand with the NPR News Now. The content is very similar but with just a little bit of commentary.
If you care about news and only have time for one podcast, this is the one!
