Appreciate the amazing journalism HOWEVER

Appreciate the amazing journalism overall however the episode about Tic Disorder amongst teens in relationship to Tic Toc wasn’t up to muster. As a clinician who too has seen a rise in tic disorders amongst female (identified) teens during the pandemic the issues are serious and need more clarity. Many questions not explored include - if it is true that Tic Toc use amongst teens is playing a major role in tic disorders showing up in this population, what is the science behind that ? How, why in watching videos of others does this show up in the watchers? Are there other explanations? Has the role of anxiety, stress pre-existing or pandemic related played a major role ? If so what is that role? I think these are complex issues and more investigation needs to happen.

Manchin’s not alone!

I’ve been a regular listener from the start and have enjoyed the generally balanced reporting in your podcasts. But your recent report on the administration’s climate plan that focused on Manchin’s opposition that sealed its fate failed to note even one of the other 50 senators who have said they’ll also vote no. You’ve saddled the West Virginia senator with a burden he doesn’t deserve.
I think you've lost your balanced perspective in this report. That’s disappointing from the WSJ.
