Review

The second best show behind Mark Levin. A truly original approach to delivering the news probably since Rush. love listening to Chris here and on the Newsmax show.

Funny, smart, seasoned, literate, but

It's not necessary to string us along for three hours by saying you've "got a clip" to play. "Wait till you hear what he said about . . . ."
Some day, this school of thought on how to keep audiences from tuning out, based on half-cocked analysis of unreliable data, will be understood for the folly that it is.

Play the audio right off the top; give your witty commentary, useful perspective. No need to tease. We'll keep listening after you play the clip. Promise. You're that good!

On the other hand, when you repeatedly pretend you're about to play the thing of interest, and repeatedly veer off to talk for twenty minutes about other things, it's more than a little nettlesome, sometimes insulting.

Ironically, the string-along technique increases the likelihood of loosing listeners.

Old news

Who wants to listen to day old news and commentary? This podcast used to be current. Now it is just past tense.
