EXCEPTIONAL

Chris you are an exceptional journalist , a hard hitting and fair interviewer.
It’s always a pleasure to listen to your podcasts, you are certainly one of a kind.
Keep up your good work, don’t let up in your criticism of the craziness of the Trump administration. The U.S needs journalists like you, now, more than ever. I listen to your podcasts from Australia, and from here, it seems that the U.S hasn’t got Donald Trump as President, but rather DONALD DUCK as President.
