My fav news show/podcast

I love his show! I started watching it with my dad and then when I went to college I started listening to it while working out or running errands. The interviews are well done and the information goes into things better than any other news show I have watched or listened to (and I’ve listened to a lot)! LOVE this!! More people NEED to listen to his show!!
