Customer Reviews


Marty Duren is a voice that needs to be heard. This podcast is a solid beginning of a discussion long overdue- calling for the media on both sides of the political spectrum to lay down their biases and report and comment on the full facts- rather than spinning them for clicks and muckraking. Great start. Look forward to hearing more.

Indie News without the Shrill

If I could bank roll Marty to research and report full-time, I would. The addition of Drive Time is a great addition. Subscribe and listen on your drive time.

Perfect for the morning commute!

The Fourth Estate podcast provides accessible and informative commentary on the news you’ve heard and much that you haven’t. The Drive Time editions are fun, quick, and perfect for when you don’t have time to listen to a 45 minute long podcast. I listen every morning!
