Substantial Reporting

Absolutely love this show. Thank you to Stephen Henderson + everyone at WDET for keeping us informed.

Another Echo Chamber/Virtue Signaling

This show is yet again another podcast for liberals who like an echo chamber. I live in the Detroit area and love all the city has to offer, yet I’m pretty sure that I could never share that on this show, as I disagree with most of what is said. So much for inclusiveness.

The stop and frisk episode is mislabeled. The episode is all about transit.
