Great insight from abroad

As a norwegian listener I find the insights I get here important to comprehed what happends over there. As a border country to Russia with the US being our most important ally it is of utmost importance to get Trump out of office and you give us insight of how to get there. Although Bernie in Norway would almost be a right wing candidate, I understand you have a some ground to cover to get him to be perceived as a potential sound choice Keep going from Norway!

Norwegian listner, good topics. But I would wish you could reduce the word «like» 1000 times pr. Episode. Annoying.
