You know what I can let go? This podcast. Also, bring in more candidates to interview who have a genuine shot at the 2020 nomination. I liked Kamala Harris’s interview. But Bullock? Really? Even though the debate lineup hadn’t been called yet, his polling numbers and individual donor qualifications were unquestionably too low. The only reason I was coming back to NPR was the “On the Road With...” segment. But now I need to nitpick through that as well, if I listen at all.

Wow! Wow! Wow!
