Love this Podcast. It’s very hard to find relatively unbiased information, but this fits my bill. Enjoy listening most every day! Thanks!
Do you ever listen to your podcasts? Your high-pitched inflections to convey outrage, incredulity or disapproval are grating. Also your slurping burbles.
You insert yourself into the topics way too much: "I interviewed him once", "I know her", "I've been a journalist for yadda, yadda, yadda"
Your self-promotion is pathetic.
