Solid mainstream media alternative!

I discovered this podcast a few months ago whilst searching for some solid alt media. Updated regularly, Salamone offers engaging, informative political dialogue with interesting guests each week. It has a solid presence among the alt media shows that are beginning to blossom these days...Definitely check it out if you’re fatigued from the MSM!

This guy is one of the best out there, giving a historical, informed, and intelligent opinion of the current circus that is the 2016 campaign. Follow him on Twitter for some great snark too!
