I’m currently unemployed and actually staying with my son; so I’m unable to afford the monthly sustainer amount. I know with cost going up for everyone, Democracy Now is suffering as well.
I worry about that.
Today’s show that barely mentioned Lindsey Graham’s press conference yesterday and your oddly timed January 6 piece really has me concerned about your shows Financial integrity.

Best global headlines for REAL news

There is so much I love about this podcast. I confess lately I have begun listening to it near religiously. I love Amy Goodman’s steady voice and her grandmotherly, yet hip appearance. The jamming opening theme music and her charisma drew me in to the show originally. (Shout out to WHYS radio in Eau Claire for introducing the show to me in their noontime broadcast.) I mention these pleasant aesthetic qualities first because the actual news being reported is often quite bleak. I appreciate the long musical breaks between segments in the broadcast in which one can enjoy not just a chorus, but a verse too! of the featured daily songs. The news presented is biased in favor of social freedom and just democracy and is anti-fascist, anti-authoritarian, etc. —which is harder and harder to come by these days. It focuses on human rights stories, ecological updates (famines, fires, floods) labor movements, global and domestic politics especially regarding violent conflict.

I have few complaints. I wish there were more domestic political stories or perhaps a special segment for the US elections and ongoing politics.
