Customer ReviewsSee All
I subscribe to cbs morning news, but have trouble finding the book review mentioned each day. For example the interview of a black girl who helped in the Civil War. Help!’
I was to excited to start listen to this podcast, because I love watching the program every morning. But found it showed very little proof and more opinion. I’m tired of hearing how much hate you show towards the President. It gets old to hear this with every podcast/ topic. I wanted to be educated. I’m going to stick with watching the show only.

Excellent thoughts on the pandemic. The Douglas Brinkley is obviously white and privileged. Otherwise, he would not think the children out of school are doing fine learning through the internet. Not all have good internet. Another utility that should be available for everyone, just like water and electricity.
