Critical Part of my Weekly News Intake!

I am very conscious about where I get my news at this point in time. As someone who identifies as an independent and wants to listen to news presented in a balanced but also morally conscious way, this podcast and Mo News podcast are the ones I trust!

One of the best parts of every week

Sarah and Beth have become my beloved friends and guides who aren’t afraid to discuss hard things with grace and nuance. I am deeply appreciative of their work and their commitment to staying curious. Through listening to their show, I’ve discovered how to have grace-filled political conversations with friends, family, and community members in difficult times.

This podcast is GOLD

Oh my goodness my love for Beth and Sarah KNOWS NO BOUNDS. These ladies are sharp, intelligent, and honest. They are so good at breaking down all the news for me. I am so thankful for their analysis and they really help me think through all the things. And don’t be fooled and put this in a “women’s podcast genre. I got my husband hooked, too. They are brilliant and sharp and everyone needs to listen to Beth and Sarah.
