Love United States of Anxiety!

Such a big fan! It’s an amazing look into the history and the make-up of current ideologies within our political system. It humanizes people while still holding them accountable for inexcusable behavior. We need more Pods like this. This is also one of those rare pods where I don’t feel the need to correct the pod because it’s so well researched and they researchers take so many narratives into account.

Keep up the amazing work and keep teaching me more!

Love,
Mariam
