Listening for years and still the data stays amazing and entertaining

Marketing tip for the abortion paper title-scrap the current one and replace with “more love equals less crime:how wanted kids receive the tools in upbringing to avoid crime.” No one can argue that the this country could use more love. Keep it up-this show continues to keep me curious while also coming to my own conclusions. Appreciate the great work!
