COViD 19

Facts matter! Opening states before a decline in COViD-19 cases, is sentencing the elderly, those with immunity issues and the poor to a death sentence. People matter more than profit!

Why does CNN keep starting & stopping podcasts?

Seems like a very silly strategy. I really liked this one. Had hoped for this pod, with this interviewer (less fakey TV voice than some of the others), with maybe the addition of 5 closing mins with Harry a few times per week. I can’t even remember the name of your new one.

Great show

The episodes are pretty short, but I enjoy the topics.
I would like to hear more news behind the scenes as well as discussion and meanings of polls.
