  • Fantastic

    Best news show out there. Almost like 60 Minutes for millennial women - covers the news, interesting interviews, and some more fun/lighthearted material. Now an essential part of my week.

  • More useful; still a work-in-progress

    I like the recent move to add expert voices as interviewees who can explain events from a factual lens eg their interview with David Rennie on China’s role in the Russia-Ukraine war. That was a very useful/helpful digest. Unfortunately, most digests generally reflect one point of view. It would be refreshing to hear a factual explanation of all sides of an issue without any implicit or explicit opinionated commentaries on those sides.

  • Don’t you want to know the truth

    Your article “ what has Republican saying about time “is ridiculous. Why is this a republican/democrat thing? People deserve to know the truth about Hunter Biden‘s laptop. Why does it matter what side of the aisle you’re on?
