Amazing Podcast but DRC??
Great podcast but are they going to cover what’s happening in the DRC?
I’ve downloaded every episode and listened daily for years… I can’t stomach it any more. Your blatant support for a terrorist organization was the final straw. Maybe I’m just fed up with the liberal bs… I guess I’m moving onto the Dailywire.
Good content, but not early enough release time
I’ve been listening to this podcast for years and enjoy the content. But more recently (months or even beyond a year) episodes are released later in the day than the used to be. No longer early enough to fit with my morning schedule.
