Amazing Podcast

It's not only my favorite pod, but an extremely informative one at that. Also, Eldridge Colby is a pathetic windbag. We, NAFO, own him 🐕

Hello from New York.

Best of a bunch of bad options

I was looking for daily news on the Russian-Ukraine war, just to follow what is happening, and this does a decent job in that regard. They are however hopelessly pro-Ukraine, which I’m fine with, but it’s to the point of inserting a bunch of opinion into what should be just straight news instead of saving it for editorials. To be clear, I’m on Ukraines side as well, but facts are facts, and I just want factual information. With that said they’re still the best opinion out there that I’ve heard and not straight propagandist. Unfortunately they do feel the need to follow old and tired traditional news formula of having the boring human interest puff pieces as part of the podcast, thankfully it’s saved for the end of the show. Seriously, who enjoys that stuff? But it’s 2024 and I can just hit next, so thankfully we live in the future. Overall I’d give this podcast a 3.5 rating, which means I like it, but it could easily be a 5-star podcast.

How can the US tell Ukraine to reduce corruption when our own govt cannot even audit DoD and Generals retire and promptly go to work for monopolistic defense contractors? We paid for those Generals to train eat etc- yet we watch as they become lobbyists for all sorts of Defense corps.theUSA has merely legalized corruption.
