Great way to mix it up

I checked this out because I really love James on alchemy this. This is a great pod cast if you want to mix it up and try a different source instead of getting your news from the same place all the time.

Biased review

I listen to a LOT of news podcasts and I try to make time for this one. It’s not trying to be funny. And to be honest I have a crush on James Heaney so 10/10

Love brief news brief

The parts where James makes fun of the news are the best. Makes a whole lot of terrible things going on in the world a whole lot better!

If I could change one thing, I’d add more of the silly stuff - think The Bugle early on with J. Oliver, that kind of thing. If I could change 1.5 things, I’d make it a tad longer - maybe 15 or 20 mins. Sometimes I’m too lazy to click a show if it’s only going to get me 8 mins of wonderful... Human nature? Perhaps.
