Let down

I remember a time when NPR was one of the few places left where you could get unbiased news information that showcased both sides of an argument, sadly that is no longer the case. Larry Mantle is a very fair host, he is always calm and collected, and very knowledgeable. My issue is that the guests they have come on his shows are disproportionately left leaning which unfortunately is the new trend among most media outlets and it’s truly disheartening to know that NPR now fits into that category.

My favorite podcast

I have been listening to AirTalk for over a decade and the show has continued to impress me all these years. Larry is one of the most level-headed, intelligent, and gracious hosts you can find. Larry avoids bias and presses both sides of the issue.

Years ago the time slot changed and I was not able to listen on my commute but I now listen to the podcast everyday and I contribute to KPCC quarterly as my gratitude for the quality programming of AirTalk. -Matthew, Windsor Square, Los Angeles.
