Hypocrisy thy name is 2600

I desperately want to enjoy 2600 but these guys flip flop so many times to maintain their lefty cred. These guys spent years defending Mitnick but the minute the narrative is spun Assange helps Trump they’re ready to abandon him oh except for the Manning incident. Don’t waste your time. Time has passed on 2600 there are way more quality outlets for this subject.

Meh.

The show has really gotten long in the tooth. A bit too political as well. I respect the hosts for expressing their political viewpoints but their bias against Trump really makes it sound like a liberal rag. I can get that from the mainstream news if I want. Basically, the consistent political bias made the show abrasive to listen to and it alienated some viewers. It’s not devoid of content, there have been some highlights but not enough to continue subscribing.

Great show

Love the hosts' interactions and the stories they put together on the week's big and small news in technology, privacy, and politics. Great stuff!
