What the heck is going on with folks who give negative reviews to this particular podcast that offers a diverse selection of topics to choose from?
I’m tired of reviews that politicize every bit of information encountered. It only makes sense to respond in a such a manner if you’re listening to an individual partisan type podcaster.
I just listened to two podcasts in which one was about the universe and the other about fiscal deficit myths—neither were politically oriented and both offered up much needed valuable information anyone can benefit learning from and further expanding their knowledge.
It would be so nice if algorithms could dump negative reviews coming from folks who look at everything in a narrow minded political perspective.
