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.

These guys give a good broadcast

I a time of political bizzaro it is vital to hear sanity. These guys are beyond the political poles, they are Texan Journalists and Texas comes first. At the same time, they have a variety of stories that are quite interesting. Just yesterday I listned to one show where they explore the history of pirate radio on the border, (i.e., Mexican Radio.) It was helpful to understand the history of radio in Texas (and yes America too) but more specifically, it pieced together some memories from my childhood.

Not Netrual

The Texas focus is great, the rest; not so much. I was looking for an un-biased source for local/regional news. Several reviews made this claim, so I gave it a shot. If your a Texas Democrat with Trump hating tendencies, you’ll love this podcast.
