Cancel some other show!!!

I have no idea why this show would be canceled. This kind of journalism is interesting and necessary. Maybe if it wasn’t well subscribed, you should look at your marketing plan more than anything else...hope it makes a comeback, I’d give up a lot of podcasts to keep this one!
