Love the informative presentation

I really like that this isn’t vitriol or propaganda, but information-backed points. The song, while the lyrics may be applicable and the instruments sound good, the decibel level hurts my migraine-prone head.

A Weekly Must Listen

Sam is slowly and steadily becoming my hero. The amount of work and content he puts out between this show, the majority report and the AM quickie is insane. I have yet to find anyone that handles interviews as well as he does. I just wish this podcast came out more than once a week. Definitely one more reason to look forward to Friday. Keep up the great work sam! Some of us out here appreciate your dadness way of keeping us informed.
