  • Solid non-partisan reporting

    Been listening for a while now, and the pod has definitely moved up the stack. It has even replaced some more tradition news agency’s podcasts. I like the concise defense-focused stories. But they also have a segment that covers news in general. I have found it to be the brief morning news podcast I have been looking for all along. Hopefully the politician interviews are behind them. They were a waste of time.

  • Left leaning for sure

    This show has bits of good general information. They lost me when they started discussing the border, adding a liberal slant. A guest journalist Insinuated that service members and veterans participating in the convoy to the Texas border were unorganized domestic extremists. The show was recommended to me by a RA officer. He did give me a disclaimer about the shows left leaning tendencies. I’ve only been listening for several weeks. I tried to keep an open mind, but I have unsubscribed.

The dress & appearance piece was the most egregious, but none of the episodes are particularly well-engineered.

  • Maybe stay away from interviewing politicians

    You’re really bad at it. Just started listening to the podcast. I like the concise defense-focused stories. Then I was assaulted with the awful interview with Rep. Mike Garcia. No matter what stupid thing he said, the interviewer just agreed and asked the next question, and let the interviewee turn every question into a political stump speech. Once he realized the interviewer was going to let anything fly, he went full on MAGGOT and started hanging all of the previous administration’s failures o... more
