Awesome podcast

To the people hating - maybe you should consider that everything you think is “bias” is actually the truth. I think they do a great job of covering all the bases in their reporting. Would love to see an ep. on the concept of degrowth soon, especially with all the recession fears and climate change looming all around us. Another system is possible

Moscow murders

This is the best podcast-synopsis out there on the case. Thank you to and your guest for raising awareness to the harm caused by internet sleuths!

Biased. Again. ,

Classified Documents

Biased. A complete downplay of Biden’s documents in several different locations chalking it up to “an oversight” but the previous administration was criminal. They left out a KEY piece of the law. A president can declassify documents while a vice president cannot. It sounds like a law has been broken but it’s ok if it’s an oversight. Unfollow.
