Balance

Love the show & always look forward to the football analysis from the 3 amigos. When it comes to discussing politics in the US, Stanage isn’t the best to have on all the time. I actually don’t listen to those shows anymore. I’m a Waterford man living in New Hampshire for 25 years and as we’re first in the nation voters I’ve seen a lot of debate through the years. Balance it up with someone from the center/center right. I consider myself socially liberal, fiscally conservative so not really represented in either party but I can see the arguments on both sides.

Shines a light on issue in a effective non-American-media manner

Great show - doesn’t pander to the left or the right - if you are looking to have a particular point of view upheld, look elsewhere

Other views

Could really do with a different point of view from the US besides that left wing Niall Stanage. He mentions irrelevant news about Congresswomen Bobert and the comments she made about congresswoman Omar, but failed to mention the daily anti-semitism spewing from Omar’s disgusting hateful mouth.
