Informative

I have enjoyed finding this podcast. I normally do not listen to real time political/ law anything! This has been so refreshing and informative. Love the format. The baseball episode I must say was awesome.

Julia Preston / In Brief 5/15 episode

This episode was fabulous.. clear, concise, and extremely informative. I have a much better understanding of the immigrant situation at the southern border, the end of Title 42 and the challenges for any administration in addressing this significant problem. Your guest, Julia Preston, gets 5 Stars, as do you for your skilled interview. Thank you !

Luke Russert

Preet and Café team,

Thank you for another amazing production/interview. The interview with Luke Russert, and the backgrounds of how Preet and his father served our legislators were fascinating and intriguing.

Preet, thank you for your service in the Southern District.

Kind regards,

I. Weiss
