New Format Change is Unaccetable

What disappointed you about The Morning Read from The Wall Street Journal, August 17, 2015?

I was shocked to here that the narrator has changed. While that wasn't so bad, the new format doesn't encompass the usual program format that included better transitions and included more articles from the WSJ.


What was most disappointing about The Wall Street Journal’s story?

The program format is not as structured as previous programs. It doesn't include a general summary of the WSJ articles and the transitions are not very fluid. In addition, the narrator doesn't quote properly when the article is quoting someone.


What does The Wall Street Journal bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I would prefer the structure of the previous programs of WSJ as well as the NYT audio digest.


What character would you cut from The Morning Read from The Wall Street Journal, August 17, 2015?

The narrator does a good job however the content he is provided is incomplete.


Any additional comments?

Please restore the previous program structure we are accustom too. The narrator is fine but the content is terrible.

Changes Not For the Better

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

No, not at all. For years I've recommended Audible for this podcast alone; I hope those to whom I praised it will not come across this new version and think me a vapid fool with shallow attention and poor taste in voices.


What was most disappointing about The Wall Street Journal’s story?

This podcast is like an Alan Alda-lite is reading me stories from Facebook instead of the previous format which had content and gravitas.


What didn’t you like about The Wall Street Journal’s performance?

The new structure and narrator are equally disappointing. His voice is too high-pitched for listening and grates on the ears.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The first time I heard this changed podcast recipe, I was particularly moved to cancel my Audible subscription. The WSJ Morning Read was a part of my daily routine that kept me a member here since 2009; sadly, that might be changing.


Any additional comments?

Bring back the WSJ Morning Read we have known and loved for years!
