One Of My Favorites But…
I really like listening to thoughtful and varied opinions on today’s political topics. But could you please put the articles and media recommendations, that are done at the end of each podcast, in the show notes? I would find this really helpful.
Have to unsubscribe. Everyone else is on topic talking about Republican going down their road with disingenuous policies/ideas and Mona interrupts the speaker to bring in whataboutism about the Democrats. She does it twice in this latest episode before I just shut it off. Eventually they’ll get to the Gaza situation and I already can hear her cutting in, off topic to whatabout whichever side makes her opinions valid. Done with this one. Rest of Bulwark is fine. Can’t stand Mona.
Although I don’t always agree, I appreciate hearing all the different perspectives. It has helped me to see things in a more broader sense. I really wish this was 2 x a week because it is one of my favorites. Thank you to you all and to the Bulwark. I am a huge fan 😊
