Best independent news in USA
Absolutely essential, I listen every day. The only thing I would suggest is finding a way to indicate to guests that segment is about to end other than saying, “10 seconds left” it seems like this often throws the guest off track and causes that last ten seconds to not be utilized.
Amy is a shining example of what journalists should be doing! Best place to get news and perspective.
Great but change your theme song
I love this show. Great guests and conversations. Especially love the segments with Noam. But please change the funky 70s theme music intro. Not exactly in keeping with the show’s central themes.
