Why is Emily on the show?

I listen every week and enjoy the podcast as a whole. My only concern is Emily. It seems like she makes inaccurate statements and you always know her opinion on an issue before she states it. I like the podcast, but replacing Emily would be a step forward. Sorry for the criticism, but I feel she brings down the show.

To political

Flex and Ana, really know what they are talking about and for the most part don’t inject too much leftist anti-Trump, anti-Republican statements, Ana better that Flex. However, Emily really seems like she knows nothing about Economics or Finance, and will always without fail take shots at Trump or the Republicans and for some reason the American Medical system. I don’t think she adds anything to the show or any discussion on economics or finance. Cathy, who Emily replaced, while a leftist actually knew things about Finance.

Emily is my favorite host

Emily comes across as a soft, but firm, voice on many polarizing topics. She’s funny and compassionate, and she doesn’t take herself too seriously. Her participation balances really well with the other regular guest.
