Opens your mind to the other side

Love that this podcast is informative, and presents opinions from all spaces on the political spectrum.
I’d love to hear something similar for the UK.

Eseential listen

My favourite podcast at the moment. The idea is a good one and the three reporters involved all play their part in keeping things thoughtful, wise, calm and nuanced. I live across the pond but I listen to almost every episode and enjoy the fact that it helps me keep up-to-date with all the big issues in the US - with absolutely no fake news!
