Generally a great source for local news

Generally really like this podcast to learn about local news and issues. I’m getting tired of the panelist “Jennifer” however, who is rude to the hosts, other panelists, and callers, and who gets really defensive whenever anyone tries to challenge her on her (often entitled and ill informed) opinions. I have a suspicion that she’s brought on to provide another perspective, however she’s so abrasive and also ignorant, that I have a hard time listening to her. At the risk of bringing in popular culture here...she comes across as a “Karen”
