The Woke Arm of the WSJ

This was once a very good podcast. Now, every story has taken a very leftist lean in the way the stories are reported. Get back to an unbiased reporting and you will be fine. That’s what we expect from the WSJ.

Well researched, great hearing the WSJ you read being interviewed

Heading the journalists in their own voices explaining sometimes difficult topics into something digestible is fantastic. You hear the passion and you hear the journalist’s expertise- from the more junior/up and comings to the senior seasoned pros - who still love their jobs.

Also great when you hear other interviewees whether they are listeners or they are the subject of the day’s topic.

This podcast makes the paper come alive. Thank you.
