I've missed TWA

I'm so glad to hear TWA again. I used to start the day with it every morning, and have missed it so much. Thank you for coming back!!!

Came for the poetry ...

But left due to his relentless leftism. No mention of D-Day on the June 6th edition, but fondly remembered the birthday of the murderous Che Guevara.

These ads are a serious problem

I love listening to this podcast in the morning just after I wake up, to get my day started. But these ads are seriously interfering with the calming effect of the podcast! I totally understand the need for adds, but these are the most incongruent, loud, and abrupt ads I’ve ever heard. Please consider recording ads in your own voice, choosing ads that are more relevant to the content of the podcast, using ads that are quieter/less shockingly abrupt, and announcing that we are now going to hear from a sponsor instead of abruptly transitioning to the ad. As others have noted, not placing ads in the middle of a sentence (particularly a poem!!!) would be great too.
