WE NEED MORE OF THIS IN OUR LIVES

So glad I stumbled across Warp News! After listening to just one episode a few weeks back, I was hooked. I can tell a lot of thought and research is put into every episode, and I find myself looking forward to each episode drop. Keep the solid content coming - I am a HUGE fan!!

We need more positive news!!!

With a world filled with negative news and targeted misinformation, Rich’s positive stories are needed to raise awareness that the world is still very much a good place!!! Keep up the good fight sir!!!!

Good resource for news this day and age

Warp is emerging as a positive, reliable outlet for news stories that are often not covered in the mainstream media. I never miss an episode.
