Good start for my day

This is a good summary and discussion of the major news of the day. Excellent production quality, mostly, from the best news source going, IMO. A quibble is that some of the guest interviewees are hard to understand, as their enunciation is sloppy. I feel like political bias is largely absent—as appropriate for a news organization.

Good podcast but can’t tolerate the Facebook adds

Like the podcast, but I’m dropping you.due to your advertisements for Facebook. Facebook is too insidious and despicable to support or tolerate. Goodbye.
