Positive take on current topics

Interesting interviews and information

JemB2485 ,

Monday through Thursday excellent

I’ve loved The Takeaway for about 4 years, and found it an excellent relatively mainstream source for insight on underreported topics. Unfortunately, I’m leaving 3 stars, because the Friday episodes with Amy Walter are just more centrist political noise than anything valuable. It’s very biased against the actual left in politics, and seems to be another cog in the status quo wheel. You’ll hear right wing people and liberals, but any leftist who is interviewed (rarely, except for Bernie Sanders because they kind of have to) is grilled and treated as pie in the sky dreamer. Very disappointing, and I wish it would be the way it once was, or have a real journalist hosting. The country doesn’t need more centrist insiders being platformed, when we face existential threats like climate change and fascism.

What does indigenous knowledge teach us about animals?

I like how this show makes us hold compassion for the animal in a situation. I would love to see this podcast push and open itself to indigenous knowledge about animals in the wild. How much of what we know comes from indigenous people who lived nearer to animals than we do now? This is a white man doing this work and while I do find the show interesting, I wonder if the show will consider how white people “exploring” has led to lots of harm and I wonder how much he has learned from elders of any place.
