  • Biased reporting

    The fact that NPR chooses not to report on important election wins by republicans on 11/3/21 shows how disconnected and biased they are. I am a moderate liberal and I am appalled by such partisan reporting. They became a puppet of progressive liberals. Time to unfollow.

  • Finally found Marco again

    Followed Marco Worman (hope that’s right but was never quite sure - Mark O’ Rorman?!) on the World Service, but then the programme disappeared. Purely by accident subscribed to this podcast and there he was. Great programmes by a great team! Could you just be a little clearer pronouncing your name ;))
