Why end the episode on a false statement

I enjoy the podcast but I just heard President Biden stating he was in 15 time zones the week before the debate. CNN reported that as a false statement. Why would you end your reporting July 12 with him stating something false. It gave him an excuse for his performance. Now I wonder if the show is politically biased. I am trying to find news that is only fact-based so I’m disappointed.

Garology is best ,

Great

Very interesting but snakes are to cute to eat

5 stars for never having Steve Bannon back on

Love this podcast but the lasted episode with Steve Bannon makes me want to rip my headphones out of my ears. Could he not be muted instead of repeating the same words and talking over the host? I’d rather not listen to that nuisance again.
