New listener, waiting to see how things pan out

I listened to a few episodes, and so far, so good. I’m American, so the royal family is just a fun distraction. I think the Queen is really admirable, and I loved her coronavirus speech (so much better than what we heard from our idiot President-at-the time). I plan to watch Prince Philip’s funeral. So sad that she lost her husband of 73 years.

But as an American, I want the royals on that side of the pond. Please take Harry and his woke wife back! Their press machine is pumping out constant “look at me, look at me, I’m such a victim of oppression,” blah blah. Did these jerks not leave because they wanted privacy? We don’t want them here.

Good podcast

The sound is terrible. Chris sounds as though he is whispering. Chris stop interrupting!
Enjoy the podcast with those fixed.
