Great way to catch up

Great pod for a weekly catch-up on political stuff and local news. Not sure you can get this anywhere else. Decent hosts, too.

My favorite local podcast

Another reviewer called this a great news source without the usual slant. I couldn’t agree more. This is a great way to get an inside look at San Diego politics and news from sources you can trust. Bonus: Scott, Sara and Andy have a great repertoire that makes listening a pleasure!

"Uhm, like, ya know, so ..."

Sometimes there's a cogent sentence, but lately most of what's said is hard to follow.
