The NPR politics podcast does a great job of summarizing the political situation. However, Ayesha Rascoe is a huge detractor from your find work. She can’t pronounce words (on a podcast???), she makes sophomoric comments and just doesn’t have the capabilities of your other hosts. Please get rid of her!

Great, but today’s episode has bad audio
