Really excellent. All the guests topics are significant.

Thank You. The battle against this political corruption is the fight of our lives and the necessary condition for everything else. This era is a race against the Kleptocracy. And they know and their political lackeys know it.

Brilliant analysis of Trump Age

Thoughtful interviews by Australian American provides intelligent objectivity.

Nice Work

Background Briefing with Ian Masters is a very informative interview program in which Ian Masters talks to people who are well-placed to have a deep understanding of the topic. He often talks to people who have served on Government committees or have worked in the halls of power, observing up close how the systems works, or does not work, as the case may be. It’s a welcome change from the tripe dished up by well-paid TV journalists who have no understanding of the privations being visited upon the US working class.
