Tuesday and Friday are my favourite days

I’m an expat in Europe and so although the pod comes out on Monday and Thursday, I don’t get to listen until the next morning because #timezones. As the liberal disappointment of my conservative family it’s no surprise to anyone that this is my favourite podcast, and I will recommend it to anyone with a pulse. Not only is PSA (as well as every other Crooked pod) fantastic, but the efforts they make outside of it (like Vote Save America) are amazing. I’m not entirely convinced any of them sleep. They’ve also mastered the cliffhanger with the ad reads, so you’re getting a dramatic subplot with your politics.

Could not love this podcast more

Since episode one this podcast has taught me so much. I’ve laughed so hard, and become even more of a politics nerd than I already was. The episodes have become the backbeat to my week, and I can’t wait for each new pod to appear.

I love your podcasts, I have been a fan of Crooked Media for a while, I have learnt so much, I love the way you guys deliver the show, your insights, humour and knowledge, it’s become my must listen every day, I miss it on the weekend. I am also a fan of Podsave the world and Lovit or Leave it and I have recommended Crooked to many friends.

But I was really disappointed in your coverage of the Oprah interview, every subject deserves an honest portrayal. There are clearly issues on both sides and I have sympathy for Harry & Megan. But everything was taken as gospel and nobody in the media seems to have done any research, especially in the US. A one sided interview where nothing is questioned is a public statement, not an interview. America has accepted all of it as fact and there has been no fact checking by anyone.

I am so disappointed in all of you. You couldn’t even check the simplest fact, it’s astounding and incredibly biased.
FACT: Regarding titles, Archie was not singled out or treated differently, the Queen has 9 great-grand children, only William’s children have titles and that’s because William is 2nd in line to the throne and will be King.
FACT: Regarding security, only the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Charles, Camilla, William & Kate get 24 hour protection. Princess Anne, Prince Edward & Sophie are guarded ONLY on official duties. The Queen’s 3 grand-daughters do not have state funded security.

I am so disappointed I have deleted all your podcasts today.
