Disappointed

By poiuytrewq098765 - Nov 10 2019
Read more
Disappointed by the liberal angle these podcasts take. Not necessarily looking for a conservative slant, but for example, to cover the CA wildfires and only focus on PGE and not the role the state overseers have played leaves a big part of the story unreported.

Simply the best podcast!
