An Onslaught of Rationality

Great info, Sam is critical of all sides and doesn't pull any punches. The guests he has on are well cultivated and discuss a broad range of issues. Not so much a fan of the fun-half because it can devolve into leftist-insider quarrels but the show/podcast itself is awesome. Keep up the good work!

!bonnie! ,

sellouts

we can’t force the vote for healthcare because cedar doesn’t like jimmy dore. sam should go back to msnbc and stop pretending he’s progressive. he’s got healthcare so he doesn’t feel the urgency many of us do. get over your ego sam!

Pandemic travel plans

I’ve been a long time listener and supporter of the show, but after today’s display by the kids team, I’m gonna reconsider. Having lost 5 family members to COVID, I couldn’t handle the sob story of Emma’s regarding her cancelled trip. If the worst thing you’ve had to deal with regarding this pandemic is a lost vacation and not being reimbursed, you really are quite lucky. But that wasn’t enough. The continued smugness and joking of being “cancelled” over something you wanted to let everyone know about is pique performance theatre. Left is best but there’s better and more informative shows out there that won’t belittle its viewers.
