    OK, WGN here is a comment. Bring back the old way of podcasts. This is crap and I do not understand why you don't know it. I am not in the listening area so it is podcast or nothing. Why did you choose nothing?

    Bring back full show podcasts. I can't get WGN, but I listen to Mike regularly via podcast. The new short podcasts aren't near as good as the old full show.

    Please bring back the full podcasts.
    It is not the same to hear only these short bits

    I understand as someone that lives far from Chicago I will not be spending money at all your sponsors, but listeners to your podcast do see the advertisements on the site. Right now Tesco and Harris bank.
    I will not be viewing as often with the new set up

    Wow this new site it great!!!!!!! No list of guest and podcast clips, no full show podcasts and lots of ads about dementia, cancer and other illnesses. Thanks WGN!

    O.K. – How many comments must be posted before you put the FULL SHOW podcasts back on the website? The best parts of Mike's show are when he has no guests and he is not talking about a topic, but when he is rambling and telling stories and talking to Andrea and Steve. This is what we miss without the FULL SHOW podcasts. Just tell us the number of requests you require before you put the FULL SHOW podcasts back and we will meet that requirement.
