So good

One of two podcasts I click on as soon as I see them in my feed (Mad Dogs and Englishmen is the other depending on the subject). The one negative is it’s not on daily.

GREAT INTERVIEW WITH JOHN ZIEGLER

Really enjoyed the interview with John Ziegler. I am a big fan of both of you so I really love it when you have John on the show. John's insight into the Trump phenomenon is one of the best there is. He lays out the case that Trump committed obstruction of justice with facts and incidents that prove up his case. He also throws in humor which is refreshing. I urge everyone to tune out cable news and listen to you and John if they want facts and not biased narratives. Loved your 2/132020 interview with John Ziegler. John makes his case for Amy Klobacher in his usual smart, humorous, and factual style. He has me convinced. Great interview with Bernie Goldberg. He knows how broken the media is today. All about ratings, narratives, and taking sides. Worthless when it comes to news. Cable news is propaganda pure and simple. CNN and MSNBC is pablum for the far left. Fox for right wing. News Max is alt right as is OAN.

NY Times and Wash Post left wing activists.

Loved John Podhoretz Interview

You and Commentary are two of my favorites. I especially enjoyed your talk with John. I listen to Commentary every day. Big fan of Christine Rosen. She is a great writer and in tune with my world view. Agree with you and John in most everything too.

Angie Speaks - nails on blackboard

I quite like this show, but it grates when a speaker with an English accent pronounces “grievance” as “gree-vee-ance”. Kept waiting for “mis-chee - vious”. Ugh, sounded uneducated.
