A podcast for everyone

Some of the episodes on this podcast are some of my favorite things I’ve listened to. Interesting interviews, fact-driven, nonpartisan. Professional host. Although the episodes begin with a data point, the narrative style showcases some of the most poignant journalism in the business.
