Was better when the focus was COVID

I stuck around for the first name change and reformatting because the show was still COVID-focused. Then the creators seemed to tire of thorough COVID coverage and completely rebranded, so I unsubscribed. I did listen to a few episodes of Good News Ride Home, but I was utterly uninterested as my reason for subscribing to start with was for coronavirus news. It's a shame and a loss because you guys were so good at that.
