A total delight

So happy this podcasts exists. From heartbreaking to uplifting stories. From shocking to amusing stories. It has a bit of everything for everyone.

Thank you, the Guardian!

Not what it used to be

Very elitist reporting. Guardian prefers the public not to think for itself so it manipulates a good vs. bad guy script in a bias report. Shouldn't be allowed to a have a powerful media outlet indoctrinate the public
