Things are slipping

What is going on? Today the announcer got the date wrong, the regular drop day had changed, the lead in from the slate to the actual article is longer while the number of articles “sampled” has gone down. My favorite podcast now sounds like it is being run by interns instead of the consummate professionals with which it won my heart years ago. Fix it!

biased one sided British elite viewpoint

dont waste your time. basically British CNN.
This is just a liberal opinion podcast from the elite British class .....basically a trump hate propaganda machine
