The perfect end of the week.

This is my favorite podcast, the one I listen to every week without fail. You often learn more about the real stories behind the news, and it is great to meet the people who write the great stories you’ve been reading all week.

Washington Week guests hate Trump!

Washington Week are just more liberal media who hate Trump, and try to pretend to be impartial. I would like to think they are acting subconsciously with their hatred of Trump and conservatives, but the results are the same.

It’s the best political show out there.

This is a refreshing show. We get to see the human side of the reporters covering the national political scene day after day. So much more than 1 or 2 minutes on a national news show, these professionals from different organizations get to share their experience and thoughts as well as their analysis. A unique and delightful format, they certainly do speak the truth. I am grateful for their work here. Thank you.
