Words Matter

The DSR Network

American politics is undergoing seismic changes that will alter the course of history. At Words Matter, we believe that facts, evidence, truth and objective reality are necessary and vital in public discourse. Our hosts and guests have broad experience in government, politics and journalism -- this gives them a unique ability to explain recent events and place them in historic context. Together, with fellow journalists, elected officials, policy-makers and thought-leaders, they will analyze the week's news and get at the real truth behind all the distracting headlines. New episodes are released on Fridays.

  • Middle of the Road

    WM has consistently tracked core political themes based on current events. However as an early leader I think they’ve fallen to the middle of the pack in terms of content. Some shows feel more like complaining than analyzing. I keep listening but its more out of hope they'll find their footing.

  • Know the FACTS

    If not for Norm I wouldn’t even listen to the female Host just repeating American news media propaganda. Also the female that is teaching a class is always knowing no facts at all again just repeating what ever propaganda she hears on TV and is always wrong. It will be no government shut down like it was no Red wave and every day the Republican Party is melting down like the witch in the Wizard of Oz.

  • Not the worst but pretty bad

    I love Talking Feds but have given up on this one. NO is interesting although a little windy, but KP, in the time i’ve been listening to this, cannot deliver a clear and concise thought. Instead, she hops around, makes asides and clarifications, and switches subjects…all in one sentence! Who has the time or energy to try to figure out what she’s saying? more
