Unsubscribing

I’ve enjoyed some of the changes. But there’s one host I can’t listen to any longer. Unsubscribing Outward as well.

Really?

Ewww- the first episode I listened to was the Al Franken/Harvard Prof one. This is like a spoof of wokeness. Any points that the hosts were on the verge of making were derailed by their fact-free speculation and ridiculous stereotypes. It’s a lot of “I don’t have the facts but let me just make stuff up that fits my argument”. This is not good from a major publication.
