Sen Boxer has always been such a powerful, intelligent voice in politics. I’m happy she’s still speaking out. Love the podcast.
Love listening to this pod but I wish there was a little less banter with Barbra and Nicole and more time o e interviews
Why change the name from fight back?
There really should be more time spent on interviews.
