A smart and funny way to get the news that doesn't leave me sobbing

Look. I still read the NYTimes, because I've got to. But this is the place to get your news that is both informed, balanced and also funny as hell.

Negin and her awesome guests make you think and laugh in one fell swoop!

Moment of Shame

So very sad to hear your forgiveness of Louis CK and Al Franken, when it is not your forgiveness that matters. The erasure of the victims' feelings happens constantly and I was hoping you wouldn't be one of the ones who forgives fellow comedians just because they are "woke". Please consider if this person was a stanch conservative, if you would go out of your way to forgive them publicly.
I'm as progressive as possible, but I'm consistent in saying no matter the political beliefs, they are all trash! I've been happily with you since episode 1, but this will be my final listen!

Negin is funny AF.

And, great quality guests with serious AND comedic insight into the crazy political environment the US is currently experiencing. Oddly enough - I listen to this podcast in order to relax about the many issues they cover. Great job Negin!
