Nuanced,topical and fun listening
Absolutely loving this pod at the moment! Always feel a little sadness when I finish listening to an episode knowing I've got to wait a whole week before I can listen to a new episode. So much information to digest in the world right now, many different opinions - but very few pods or shows offer a balanced(ish), unfettered view like the News Roast does. This has become a must listen for me on a weekly basis!
Still briliantly entertaining. Now with a more serious, (if you can imagine it!), political edge. Top shelf guests and current issues. They're not just kidding around about this. As the thumbnail shows man cannot live on satire alone so please rate review and spread the word.
Great podcast! Informative and entertaining.
