My go to!

For the past week I have been listening to this podcast. The reason behind it was that I wanted to be informed about coronavirus and also about the US elections. I found Focus to be a very insightful and interesting podcast to listen to, they bring really good well informed people to talk about the topic, and it's just my go to at the moment!

I think the length of them are so good and you can just listen to them in your commute which is great! Sorry this is really long... But i just wanted to say keep it up, i'm a 15 year old and I am completely in love with this podcast and mood it readiates! 💗💗
