  • Done with the money grab

    As a sustaining member of NPR, I am simply done with the money grabs by the individual podcasts. Now they hold back episodes to subscribers only. To this I say, no. Say good bye to this sustaining doner NPR.

    I always feel like I learn something new each time I listen to this podcast. I love listening on my commute or in a run. I’ve shared multiple podcasts with friends and family when the topic touches on something I think they’d enjoy hearing. Thank you to everyone at WHYY for putting together a terrific podcast!

  • Weak

    Fresh Air has gone down hill. Trump obsessed, mediocre partisan coverage of politics in US. Guests espouse far left positions. No moderate perspectives. For every issue affecting the right, the left has the same problems; if not worse given the current admins inability to govern properly.
