Like it

I've been listening for awhile. Most of the time I enjoy the back and forth of the two commentators but once is awhile Ron steps all over Heather which drives me crazy. I will continue listening because I am "freaked out" about the current political environment and need some soothing "carry on" historical perspective. But Ron - please let Heather talk!

Say it ain’t so...

Please don’t go. We need you.

Great show, sorry to see you go!

Wish you’d been around to comment on Mueller indictments announced in mid-February!
