Excellent Resource

Great information and facts not presented in most media. Especially valuable is when the explanations are related to specific laws or the Constitution.

Use to enjoy, now just

I used to like this pod but you have gotten away from your mission. With Tim Doescher, this has become too much of an echo chamber for conservative talking points. I listen to have experts explain the situation. There is now too much opinion inserted into the podcasts and not enough expert analysis. I’m not here to be told what to think. Bring back more with Michele Cordero. I’ll be unsubscribing soon if it doesn’t improve.
