Can’t wait to listen :)

Barge Marge ,

Get ready to be fired up! Addendum: So hope this returns!

I just found about this sexy nerd via the WellRed guys on the Weekly Skews. What a great PC, this gives me hope that maybe all of us on the left can maybe find some common ground and keep the momentum going with the election of President Joe Biden. Sam keeps it folksy and real. I am in love! Update: love Sam & Ruby and hope they return as 15 episodes was not enough! I am that sexy patriot who has her fingers crossed for a return!
