Well-researched and thoughtful

I like that they include related links on their website to see other views and articles related to each subject

Global family child ,

Progressive newbie

Great for getting "between the lines" of social policy debates from a progressive/"people" point of view. Especially the website - transcripts AND related links from all sorts of alternative, reliable, first-class journalists, academics and activists

huckleberry79 ,

Longer

This show teases its interview so the audience will visit its website; totally shameless. The scant interviews are heavily edited and deserve longer run times. Also, the sad voice that does the news is ridiculously low energy. She dead or something? Why doesn’t the host read the news?
