  • Not just headlines

    Not twenty minutes of headlines with no context or backstory but rather a not-rushed, in-depth, knowledgeable look at issues with a dash of Brad’s humor.

  • Always informative and interesting

    My go to news podcast every morning. So much more enjoyable than other podcasts that are either biased or have annoying personalities. I have tried so many and this one just keeps making the grade.

  • Puns for days

    Brad’s “I want my MTV - motion to vacate” joke this morning had me rolling. So much news breaks my heart these days; this show’s sense of humor (and Brad’s stellar delivery) are the spoonful of sugar that helps the nasty medicine go down.
