Embeded is Always Ahead of the News

When Embedded started its latest series on Mitch McConnell it helped us remember and learn more about how this one man has been destroying our democracy for years as our eyes were turned elsewhere. Now suddenly his name is coming up in commentary constantly. Thank you Embedded for radically altering the conversation by getting us to focus on this evil influence by turning our heads to see him hiding in plain sight. What do we do about it now that we are “woke?”
Kelly McEvers knowing your experience covering Syria I am grateful you’ve brought your focus on humanity and justice home to our own teetering democracy in the US. I’m grateful and proud of you.

Interesting early expose of McConnell, but....

If you know and follow politics, the presentation and material is a pretty light. If you like the NPR politics podcast (I generally don’t), you’ll probably like it. There were moments intended to build suspense that made me want to just groan.

Host makes stereotypical & problematic statements

The show is good. But the host makes some terribly stereotypical and problematic comments. “Guys with tattoos & baggy jeans” when referring to gangs. Racist undertones. Very disappointing
