they’ve taken the lead….

I love the sound and music !! The effects, I mean I’m high right now and it’s easy to follow along. This is the show I usually listen to at work in the mornings, and I’m just so entranced right now by one of the Sunday Reads (May 19/2024) the audio convinced my brain it needed to write a review, and the soft spoken voice, sweet melodies, among cool content. Very creative approaches and I would eat my hat to meet the beautiful people behind it. I’ve listened to y’all since last year and Apple had my favorite for a while with their 10 min segments but I’ve finally declared this my favorite news one, and among the top pods for me. I listened to two back to back after my second job and it’s just what I needed ✌🏼🏄☮️

The answer to"the questions"

1. Wow a president does good things and they get some praise! Big deal. 2. Pro trans because all lives matter 3. They are not pro-war. This is simply untrue. It's sad to see so many good people be influenced by horrible propaganda like this...
