This is what I was looking for
Since TWiB! went on extended hiatus, I have been looking for a news podcast that covers the needs of people rather than pushing an agenda put forward as “for your own good.” ReWire’s Boom! Lawyered and TBGWT cover parts of that. This covers a lot of the rest in a more serious tone. This first episode is obviously well researched and will help you develop your knowledge of the impact of politics on people’s lives. I can’t wait for more.
Good and groundbreaking
So far pretty good! Great, important topics that really educate and touch all Americans--not just communities of color. Looking forward to hearing more from those on the ground working to advance good and change.
Thank you for this informative podcast!
