Highlight of my week

My favorite podcast hands down.

AlliKat777 ,

Nuance for days

Long time listener, first time reviewer. This is a staple of my news/politics podcast group. I appreciate the nuance that Sarah and Beth bring to every topic, always trying to find an understanding of the other side, even if they don’t agree.

Nuance? Where?

I found PP in 2018 and I really appreciated their different perspectives and seemingly objective thoughts / view points.
Then, things changed. The change was gradual, but slowly, the tone moved from considering both sides of the aisle - to both hosts being on the same side.
As a result, the conversation has lost all nuance and has become smug, condescending, and very opinionated. I can get that from FOX or CNN. No thank you.
I returned today, January 11, 2022, hopeful, that perhaps things have changed. Sadly, they have not.
