Enjoying Kojo In Florida
Since moving from the DC area, I've missed listening to Kojo's show which I listened to daily in DC. Now this I can get his podcasts, I feel like I'm "home" again. He's a great balanced source of information and his interviewing style is fair to his guests-even when he doesn't agree with them.
Fantastic Regional News Show
I love my Kojo. We moved about a year ago and I have to subscribe to Kojo to keep me up to date on all the DC news, politics, and goings-on. Kojo asks such intelligent questions and is so easy on the ears.
