Love Nicole, but LOAD THE PODS timely
5 Stars Nicolle and 2 Stars to whoever produces the Podcast
Nicolle is the only MSNBC host I would listen to daily for my political news round up - but I cannot rely on DWH pods dropping daily or timely when they do. I can’t believe that a big dog like MSNBC can’t get their act together to produce the shows reliably. You must know that podcasts are officially a mainstream way people access the shows. If anyone out there is listening - please get your act together and get the pods out. Thanks!
Time Radio really?
Love the show but do you really have to put ads for Murdoch’s Times Radio on? Disgusting bile network standing against every reason I listen to you Nicole. Serve me ads if you must but not promoting Murdoch media properties. Awful.
I work in a Jail and we have a vaccine mandate. I’m vaccinated, but I’m hearing all theses weird reasons not to take the vaccine, are they from the right? Why do they want to harm their voters? Can you give me evidence that helps me counter the information that there is people dying or ill effects happening if you have any of the vaccines or small percentages of people who do? I want to help my coworkers decide to get vaccinated and not quit. I keep hearing my cousin got the shot and now has permanent heart damage or I know someone who had a small heart attack and associates it with getting the vaccine.
