HSGANDERTALL ,

Don’t trust the corporate detractors in the reviews

A splendid podcast for citizens surfeited with corporate media and fatuous internet outlets financed opaquely by cynical bankers and businessmen

Mermaidem ,

As a vegan progressive i wanted to like this show

But it’s nothing special. The hosts are annoying and extremely rude. They make fun of paying members on air and constantly excuse their bad behavior as mental health or anxiety issues. Jerks.

Whit412 ,

My favorite social-political podcast.

I’ve been listening to this podcast throughout the whole Trump debacle and I swear I feel like Allison could be my BFF. She says everything I’m thinking, but in an entertaining way. This tell-it-like-it-is show tackles all the hot topics with a great perspective. Her guests are phenomenal as well.

I subscribed over on Patreon as well! Definitely support this awesome web show.
