Favorite Friday Show

I look forward to the reporter round table every week. I so value getting to hear Idaho news from our amazing local reporters. Gemma is a wonderful host- I could listen for hours.

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.
