Love it

I absolutely love the show but the ASMR style Michelob ads are disturbing.

Balance

I started listening with the Watergate episodes and love it right away. Now I am listening to Clinton, an era I lved in and raised my kids, and I am learning so much about what was going on. I applauded everyone invovled in these important stories. I am going to subscribe even though it is difficult for me on my salary to do much of that and I am a supportor of PBS. I feel it is very important to keep these kinds of in-depth reporting alive.
