Biased and poorly researched

I just listened to their episode on Cuba and it was very superficial. It was poorly researched, they talk about the embargo against Cuba and the Cold War tensions between them and the US. And SOMEHOW they managed to leave out the Bay of Pigs invasion orchestrated by the CIA in the interest of American companies who previously controlled Cuba’s economy. There are plenty of academic sources of merit that could have been consulted to give an informed and objective discussion on the subject.
The lack of preparation and research into this story is ridiculous. Even Wikipedia would have told you something about the Bay of Pigs. It seems as though it was purposely left out of the podcast episode, and it is straight up misinforming people. There is no objectivity on the subject, and it’s sad that you have to portray it in such a biased manner to dramatize it for the sake of more “views” or “listens”.
