die besten argumente

super informativ, herrlich detailliert, für alle, die eine gute Untermauerung für Argumente wollen und gerne mal nachdenken

familieheinzbecker ,

insufferable

mr. yglesias mastrubatory tone of voice is absolutely insufferable.

Fatbarnes ,

Nice

Nice pod by very well informed reporters. Only super annoying aspect is the way the “presenter” starts every sentence on an excruciatingly high pitched tone.
