Good stuff!

Always high-quality, informative segments. The host is a great interviewer and covers unique topics. I loved the recent episode with Sen. Anthony Hensley!

No longer a fan

I’ve been pretty disappointed with Kraske’s interviews this year. He is gentle and passive with guests who should be challenged. Yesterday’s episode about KC police training was the end for me - I could not believe what I was hearing. This program is officially out of my rotation.

Kraske is just a little too old white guy for the world we’re living in. I think it’s time they bring in someone else for these interviews.
