Fight back

Love listening to this pod but I wish there was a little less banter with Barbra and Nicole and more time o e interviews
Why change the name from fight back?
There really should be more time spent on interviews.

Too centrist

I like the idea of this podcast. I started listening to hear a mother-daughter conversation. I imagine this is how many of us politically engaged folks converse with our families. However, what passed for progressive in the 90s is no longer the standard. Get with the times. There’s nothing wrong with reaching for the stars and pushing for a left or progressive agenda. This duo is way too Biden-friendly. I don’t mind Biden too much but he’s way too centrist, just like this podcast. It’s time for the next progressive generation to take over and this podcast isn’t it. Sorry, ladies, but I have to unsubscribe. I voted for Senator Boxer here in California but it’s just time to move onto the next chapter in politics and government.
