    One Thing: Trump Survives Assassination Attempt (Plus, Latest on GOP Platform)

    The Republican National Convention is scheduled to get underway on Monday in Milwaukee, despite a shooting at former President Donald Trump’s rally on Saturday night that the FBI says was an assassination attempt. While the draft language of the official party platform puts Trump front and center, some say it does not go far enough on key issues. In this episode, we look at what it says and why Trump is distancing himself from a more extreme pro-Trump plan called Project 2025.

Format 5 Ifeoma 1

I love this format, but the word is ASK not axe. I find myself wanting to skip Ifeoma Dike’s episodes. It’s not just that word but so many inflections that are distracting.

What's with this "hello"?

I would be giving a five star review to this whole show… But I am giving a two star review for episodes hosted by Jo Beck... it's her overly chipper "hello" that is just incongruent with news of the day that typically contains extremely serious information. She sounds like she is saying hello to a bunch of joyful school children. I immediately turn off the podcast when I hear it. I'm sorry to be so blunt but that's my truth.
