Exhausting

Used to love it but can they ever talk about anything besides January 6th? It’s like a parrot that just repeats the same few words its entire life.

Up First

I listen to this daily. My only problem is that Rachel weighs in too much with what is clearly her opinion. Sometimes it is just a long “hmmmm.” Podcast has great content but Rachel needs to limit her extra sentence here and there. I don’t want to hear her enthusiasm or dislikes. Example, on 11/22/22 episode she laughs at the end of the railroad strike story and says leverage. Annoying.
