America would benefit from listening to Jack. Should be on a national show. I’ve been listening for over 15 years...have you ever finished reading a book or watching a documentary and you get that feeling of being smarter than you were before. That’s how Jack makes me feel everyday after his show.
I’ve been listening and enjoying Jack’s show for years.
