Love it

I’ve been listening to the show for years via podcast after I moved out of the area. Love it, keeps me updated on the ongoing s at home.

“Elites” being elites

If you want a very one sided take of your news, without any pushback, this is your place. Listened to the Gay episode, and there was absolutely no ability by the individuals to speak on the various complexities of the case, which there are. Just a lot of elites trying to sound profound, carrying a narrative to appease the powers that be. If you were going to talk to me about how important academic integrity is at Harvard, and then say what happened to Claudine Gay what is a travesty, don’t talk to me about academic integrity, or how important it is at Harvard.
