A must hear Podcast...
It’s short and to the point and the fact that it’s daily makes it more meaningful for a common man to be in the loop of modern information warfare.
Journal as in Journalist?
Show is ok. Some episodes are better than others, but I routinely find myself asking why the most basic counter argument or questions aren’t posed. Is this journalism or an editorial? If you’re looking for a 15 min focus on a single news story, this ain’t it. This is a 15 min oral argument for 1 side.
Basically the Daily
This show is fine. It’s basically The Daily, with all the same wokeness and social justice rhetoric. Tolerable, I guess.
