Love this podcast love this voice

I love listening to this podcast because it’s short and sweet and to the point. The only reason I’d want it to be any longer is so I could keep listening to this guys voice! It’s so smooth and just what I want to hear first thing in the morning.

Disappointed

I got really excited when my friend told me about this podcast. I figured that the quick summary of news stories would be fairly unbiased and mostly informative. But I soon came to find out that Ozzie is not only extremely biased, but they’re just your typical news source that reports inaccurate information to support the left. Hopefully one day there will be a great podcast that will give accurate information and not try to divide our country more.
