Best political podcast in RI!
There is no one else in Rhode Island that talks about these topics like these guys. It’s refreshing to hear this kind of conversation applied to actual topics and issues going on in the Ocean state, and really wish there was more outlets like Liberty RI and the Rhode Island Liberty Report.
Highly recommend listening and putting this into your podcast rotation!
What I’ve been looking for in Rhode Island politics. Looking forward to more episodes and the possibility of live meetings mentioned in episode 1. Thank you!
