Appreciate the convo

Tone and content for the podcast is both refreshing and challenging. Keep it up MsLeon.

hdhxkdiendnx

this is a very bad podcast. Ms Leon has the affect of a woman i work with who is in the spectrum. she constantly speaks over guests who are objectively much smarter than her to add literally nothing to the show. if you can stomach that the guests are sometimes worthwhile

Tvig1 ,

Good Foreign policy analysis

She has good guests and provides insightful analysis of US foreign policy
