Reliable valuable information
This is a very useful podcast from experts, no hype, just the facts.
Just the facts
Thank you for your straight up insight. So refreshing to not have to weed through the propaganda parade of main stream media.
Needs more content!
Absolutely fantastic breakdown of POLICY, and does a good job of keeping the “politics” and drama out of politics. I just want to hear about policy that has been passed and what is coming down the pipeline and this absolutely delivers. Host is great, and does a good job playing the middle.
The only thing I would change is having more content!
