Unbiased and diverse
Diverse range of topics and varied guests. Not a fan of everything about the show but not sure what the negative review is about. Even at times when I wish the host and others on the show would be more biased they stay impressively middle of the road. Keep up the good work everyone.
Informative & entertaining
I like the Texas centered stories. I think they maintain a pretty good balance. I don’t call myself liberal or conservative. I think both sides are over the top on different things!
Just like reading my Texas Monthly, I’m not interested in every story, but over all they do a lot of good work! I enjoy the program. Great to have the podcast when I’m out on the road.
A Little Too Biased
I love that the podcast is focused solely on Texas and the reporting is great! I just wish it wasn't so biased one way or the other, but that’s impossible to find these days.
