Great show - good balance

Viewed from overseas, this show is entertaining and informative. I understand that many Trump supporters view it as Anti-Trump. It can seem that way - but surely the litmus test is how it balances between the conventional Democrats and Republicans. And there this show seems well balanced. Mr Trump excites strong opinions for & against - accurate factual reporting is the litmus test for him - on which I trust The Economist.

Fell of a Quality Cliff Edge

Why are the candidates that are backed by corporate contributors to NPR get about 2.5x the mentions? Whether it’s an institutional muzzle or lack of journalistic integrity, the result is propaganda.

At last, an independent view from the US.

As a new listener from London, UK. I find these podcasts both refreshing and reassuring. Over here we get a terribly distorted view that there is collusion between the 4th estate and Trump. NPR does not fall into that category. Incisive, diversified and consistent. It’s the last authentic American voice to be heard internationally.
