Long time on and off listener

I used to listen without fail. However, the tone during the recent change of administrations made clear a bias, as did the particular drumbeat created during COVID-19 (note the odd outsized # of appearances by Scott Gottlieb. He is a smooth talker for sure but how is it that he managed to get such a regular spot?)

Ms. Brennan is a star, to be sure - best interviewer in the ecosystem of policy-centered journalists. However, being based in Washington has a negative impact on the show in addition to the positive. I wonder how the line of questioning might change if, say, Ms. Brennan lived outside of Charlotte or Houston. Yes, she has access by being DC-based, but DC is a bubble - a good one in many ways, but a bubble for sure.

Now that COVID is in retreat take the show on the road. Go to the middle of the country. See what happens. You’d be surprised. (Don’t assume you know how you’d be surprised. The assumptions are your bias talking)

Get out of the air-conditioned offices, out from behind the computers, and start rubbing shoulders with folks. Let go of team members who shoot the snarky remarks off camera. We know these folks exist because of the tone. It’s not a bad tone, but could serve a wider audience if it was less overtly “DC”.

ads on Face the Nation podcast

John Dickerson is doing an excellent job of filling in for Margaret Brennan but is it really necessary to blast us out of our seats by cranking up the volume on the ads? I set the volume at a level which allows me to hear the host and his guests clearly without disturbing everyone else in the house but then along comes an ad to wake up my entire family. In the case of the ads featuring “Jill Schlesinger, CBS Business Analyst” I think they also wake up some of my neighbors.

It’s so irritating that, just on principle, I would never, ever buy any product or service advertised on the FTN podcast. Could that be what they are going for?
