The Empirical Truth

Great conversations with actual experts in a very digestible format.

Used to like this podcast

Since March 2019, there have been 55 Truth Report podcast episodes that explicitly mention Trump in the title. The paranoia and obsession with Trump is beyond ridiculous. At this point, the podcast is simply addicted to and profiting off of the fear of Trump. Some of the guests I very much admire and am thankful they are given a platform, but the podcast has now gone completely off the rails. Fear is not being used to inform or enlighten but to keep people afraid in sole service to the podcast and ratings.
