Very good reporting

I appreciate your podcast but how about considering adding a woman reporter to the commentary?

A demo lean

Shows how once you drink koolaid it’s hard to flush out. I only listen to see hear the Democrat side of Fl politics and it’s still in full swing. Talking about Gaetz like he is already guilty and still fixating on what the trumps are doing. Underneath they don’t like a right wing success. And no mention of border issues.

Informative and Entertaining

This podcast is well produced with fun music throughout segments. The reporting is a great summary of what’s going on in the sunshine state.
