Like evening newspaper
Growing up, we had two newspapers in our town—The morning one and an evening one, the latter which gave a rundown of all the important news that happened during the day. Consider This is the equivalent of the evening newspaper… I look forward to hearing it while I make dinner. I feel more informed and it gives me something new to chat about with my family around the table.
Good but biased
It’s extremely biased. I want to get informed, and I wish not everything was politicized nowadays. Take ep. “The Pandemic Bounceback...” 10/16/20, they praise China and its extremely authoritarian government for its ability to control the virus within their borders. Really?? If they are so amazing why didn’t they take severe measures to control it in Dec/Jan before their virus spread? This show is a joke.
