Full episodes?

One of my favourite podcasts to catch up on what’s going on in this country without hearing it from the leftist think tank.
Although, Where had the full episodes gone? What’s going on with these 6-8 minutes clips??! Full episodes are needed NOW!!!!!!!!!!!

Why so short?

When I started listening to this program via podcast, it was 45-60 minutes long. Now it’s 7-11 minutes. It’s a fraction of the show. Why? I like the show but it needs to be longer. I would give a full five star if it was. Until then it’s a three.
