    THE JEWEL OF LIBERTY - 2020

    THE JEWEL OF LIBERTY - 2020

    Our election special:  in more ways than one!  

    Abraham Lincoln called the right to vote "the jewel of liberty, within the family of freedom".   We 100% agree.

    Hear us discuss some historical election trivia, and -- shudder! -- we give our opinions, and our (first-ever!) endorsement.

JoJo Bakka ,

Is the speed stuck?

Though the topics are good, I find the narrators read too slowly. I thought it was ASMR but the other narrators are faster.
The sound quality is poor too, some presenters sound like they’re in a box with the mic outside.
It’s got potential so I will stick with them for now.

Who could this be? ,

Get on with it

Too much waffle before main topic

Pavo singslive ,

Fascinating

Fascinating, varied stories told in a different way. Will look forward to future episodes.
