Apcpt ,

Decent wrap up, biased.

The host does a good job of hitting the big ticket news you’d want to be aware of but it’s definitely not an objective look. Useful if you want a left perspective without having to bear pod-save America or TYT.

Please Please stop with the “sort of”

Mostly every adjective pronounced in this podcast is preceded by “sort of”. This implies that nothing is factual, precise, real. Is this what the host wants to convey?
