Tonya Mosley

Before quarantine I’d listen to H&N from time to time to catch Tonya. Her voice is dynamic but even more than that she’s authoritative and on the pulse of what’s happening in the world today. I like Robin Young too, she’s soft spoken and seems like a nice lady. But when those two are not there this show feels like background noise.
