  • Literally the only thing palatable on NPR!

    By far my absolute favorite thing to listen to… Quite literally the only thing I can stomach on NPR, and from the sound of the commercials during the show, things are only getting worse. Shame, I used to listen regularly, but the idiot ideologies are off the rails. Defund NPR.

  • Amazingly funny until

    Apple got too big for its britches or maybe it’s NPR. They want to charge you now so we can’t even listen!? It was fine when you released two episodes a week for free. I’m not going to support this any longer. I hope you lose all your patronage trying to make more money.
