You didn't notice, you missed most of the news

Just when I thought I lived surrounded by constant news this podcast reminds me that I am surrounded by one dominate story that actually gets told to me over and over from multiple sources. The dominate story of the day is important, but there is a lot that never gets the top spot, I love that this weekly recap gives me what I missed. My only negative is the week in review opening poem, I find it annoying, but I guess we need a big picture opening.

Boring Left Wing Echo Chamber

Such a disappointment. I normally enjoy this guy’s work but this is just nothing. Sad. Boring.

Informative, But Could Use Some Work

Love Morgan and almost everything he has done. This show is really informative for those that want to hear about stories they may have missed from the mainstream media. However, the show does suffer from a lack of perspective from guests. Additionally, Morgan's music partner is a frequent contributor, and while I think he adds some interesting points some of his attempts at humor are truely groan-worthy.
