Great show

I’m glad that I found this podcast - sometimes I’ve heard the show live, but often can’t because I’m working when it’s on. It’s important information to hear about in our great state. Keep up the great work!

Fake news

Gemma is just a leftist snob spreading more misinformation and fear to push propaganda.

What about the rest of the state?

Very well produced. Asks great questions. Stays pretty focused on the Southern Idaho cities. Occasionally mentions CdA, but usually in less than affectionate tones. Would be great to hear from some small town reporters during or from some of the Northern area reporters during their Reporter Roundtable.
