A MUST LISTEN

Mr. Eikey is both knowledgeable and entertaining. His podcast is extremely informative and a must-listen for anyone interested in staying informed on current events and policy-related topics. This is the one podcast I listen to that I wish I could rate higher than five stars. Please check it out!
