So, so, so much expository...

I love the content of this daily podcast, but the advertisements and plugs for other podcasts and stuff take up a pretty significant portion of time. I sometimes get more news in much less time with other dailies. But I do love Vox Media!

VITAL

I wish I could put this show on everyone’s must hear list. It’s important to get all points of view. These guys are digging for truth, and often find it.

Noam Hassenfeld should be the host

Omg, Noam Hassenfeld is such a better host than Sean. I can’t stand his bad attempts at humor…at best, it’s super corny and at worst, it’s shows insensitivity for topics that have real weight and consequences. Stop trying to be cute or clever if you can’t nail it. The humor is so cringe-y and takes away from the credibility of the show.
