My Accountability Buddy

As I’ve tried to reduce my news and media consumption for the sake of the my mental health, the Pod continues to be a twice weekly touch point. The intelligent analysis and insightful context combined with wit and great interviews would be enough to keep me listening. However it’s the clear driving belief that America can be better, and will be better, that really keeps me listening week after week.

It’s not a passive belief either, I feel the guys are fighting for this future and not just creating opportunities for others to be involved, and inviting and encouraging participation, but really ensuring listeners know that it is our shared responsibility to Save America.
