Sensationalist crap

Clearly designed for the lowest common denominator, she makes all kinds of claims without providing any proof to back it up. All just hearsay and sensationalism for an uneducated American audience.

Spotify exists

If you can’t listen here try Spotify. Or try one of the 6 or 7 different podcast apps that exist. Chances are the issue is with apple not the podcast company
