Facts with guitar lick bonus

For a couple of reasons this podcast feels exactly right for these times, this chaotic “season” of a pandemic plus economic nose-dive. Add in fed-up protestors of racial injustice who have created an armada of a movement. Not to mention Siberia hit 100 degrees (100 degrees means melting ice, right? Lots of it?) ...and fights about masks? Seriously, it’s such a weird time full of egregious lies and important truths. The Fall Line gives us facts, asks good questions and gives listeners clear action items should they want to participate. It feels genuine. No fake news or false promises. And I love the guitar transitions.

*ahem* AMAZINGLY FULL OF AMZEMENT!

I love this podcast so much! Exactly Right is most definitely my favorite! Whenever I’m bored I just listen to this, and imagine if some of the victims in these stories were me. I will be scared to go anywhere alone unless its on my property or I’m going to the Walmart restroom!
