So gratifying

I am listening to Today in Focus for years already which says enough in itself. The detail attention is great and the production quality is excellent. Subjects are not always interesting, but hey, you can skip those (which is seldom)
Last but not least are the presenters which I find are always top notch an to the point.
You may have to be a lefty liberal like me to fully enjoy the content but I am happy to share that this great podcast will bring some joy and enlightment if you are like me!
Live well and prosper

I guess this has nothing to do with the attack on Libya by the western powers by removing a functioning government.
