My favourite podcast

I can’t complain about the podcast. It’s perfect. I love the playful but informative nature of the podcast.

Totally left wing data resource

TLDR

T totally
L left wing
D Data
R Resource

I feel this podcast started off refreshingly unbiased, but has moved rather left wing in the hosts perspectives.
They seem to find data to suit their opinions as opposed to objective facts (i feel they attempt to be objective unsuccessfully)
Its a shame, as i did enjoy this podcast at one time.

TLDR rocks!

I used to hate the news because they would always stay on the surface. With TLDR youtube and podcast I finally have someone who explains the news CLEARLY and in DETAIL and they’re not afraid to go deep into things, I feel so much better i formed now. I discovered them a couple of years ago when I was looking to understand what was in the Brexit Deal that everyone was talking about but no one was explaining what was ACTUALLY in it.
Highly recommend.
