Best podcast for casuals.

I love this podcast because I believe That the host is honest about her finding and spends more time researching than any normal person has time for. We disagree on a lot of things but her research is invaluable for anyone trying to understand the corruption and dishonesty in our political system.

Makes me think

Amazing idea for a podcast. Very impressive research. Please god let my mind always be open. It’s hard to find material for my drive that isn’t in the tank for one side or the other OR clearly agenda driven in some way. Jennifer Briney’s only agenda is the truth as far as I can tell. Everyone should listen to the Federal Reserve episode.

Love her work, even when I disagree

Jen clearly spends hours finding Congressional hearings on video, reading bills and doing tons of research to deeply understand the inner workings of the US government. As a teacher, I certainly don’t have the time to do all of the work she does, and I’m very grateful to have the research available in show notes to look for myself. Her “value for value” model is a breath of fresh air, and I have no shame in saying I have supported this podcast monetarily as well as with my listening ears. Please listen and learn from this terrific researcher!
