Excellent Reporting

I spent months phonebanking for the GA campaign and listened to this afterward. I learned SO much backstory and it helped me better understand the work I was a part of.

Why is every media outlet trying to promote socialism?

I love podcasts without a political agenda. I grew up watching and being a direct part of working hard with my family in a small business. I helped us work hard from having nothing to being able to live comfortably. Hard work should be rewarded and the United States has always been a place that this could happen, but the media and socialist organizations are trying to punish people like me. It’s not right but wrong and I will continue to teach my kids the value of hard work. This is a horrible podcast!
