Best Way to Start Your Day

This is a fantastic news podcast that is 100% unbiased. Just the facts! Erica Mandy covers the top headlines in an upbeat refreshing way first thing in the morning. Perfect to listen to when rushing to get ready for your day or relaxing with your first cup of coffee.

Wait a minute!

Fair? Erica, please go back and listen to the way you report on the President. You are beginning to sound like all of the liberal journalists, making every faux pas of the President’s “national news.” It’s not! This is a good podcast. Rise above the rest and be the fair voice you want to be!

Best quick and fair daily news recap ever!

Erica Mandy does an amazing job. I try to never miss an episode. 10 minute time investment and I have an unbiased view of the world’s top stories.

I highly recommend!
