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.

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.

Crash course ...to the left, to the left.

Disappointing that NPR is moving away from balanced reporting and repeatedly, increasing, allowing its show hosts to peacock their leftie views - Mara Liasson is the worst (they really need to dump her) but the others are seemingly getting braver in voicing their far left, anti-Trump opinions. I’ll continue listening for the time being, but....stop with biased reporting and story lagging, just stick to the evidence and facts, not your anti/pro ideas. And please get rid of Liasson, the woman’s a talking bag of blah, blah, blah.
