Very good news podcast

Really enjoy this look at Colorado news from the Sun. It’s one of the few independent news sources to trust.

Long live local journalism!

I LOVE the Colorado Sun’s reporting and their mission to support local journalism across the state. I’m a proud member and listen to the Daily Sun-Up most mornings to get my Colorado updates in a concise dose.

Disappointed.

I listen most days and generally enjoy this informative local podcast. Today I’m disappointed. Describing crisis pregnancy centers as “clinics that may not be as willing to provide abortion services” but do provide other pregnancy related care. Breezing over concerns about deceptive practices and lies perpetuated by these clinics. Down playing the weight of ACOG with a both sides argument. Today was not a good day for this podcast.
