War in Ukraine….

Great short bites of information told creatively

Whether you agree or disagree with the (sometimes) partisan nature of some of the content. You can’t deny that this podcast is well researched, entertaining and provides listeners with a basic knowledge of timely events. I appreciate getting to know further than just the headline of major stories (and some stories that I had not heard about) without being bombarded with too much information. I also appreciate the style in which it is produced making this podcast a welcome part of my day.
