Love this podcast!

I am an avid podcast consumer and The Lincoln Project is currently my favourite. This podcast helps me to better identify, understand and articulate the facts about Trump and his failed presidency. It has been reassuring to find people who see and feel the same way I do about Trump and his behaviour. To borrow a phrase from Rita on the latest episode, I feel like I have "found my tribe"!

Love Rita!!

I just loved listening to Rita, what a breath of fresh air. I'm Canadian and am very worried about the future of American democracy. We, up here, are shaking our heads at how Trump can be do popular. Hearing Rita gives me hope for our American neighbours. I do hope more people wake up.
