What About It
There’s still at least one chance to save America. There are hopefully others, but if we have exhausted all other options, there is still this podcast. If everyone in America would listen to this show, we could most certainly turn things around. It’s all the news that matters treated with all the seriousness it deserves. If it’s a significant issue, you’ll find this show covering it and covering it the way you’ve always wanted the serious issues of the day to be covered. The show gets in deep and delivers all the things the mainstream media doesn’t: context, facts, pragmatism. It has none of the hyper-active editing or fancy holograms or splashy headlines of other news programs. It has something more important: the heart of the matter, whatever that matter might be. I’ll never really trust anyone enough to say they’re giving you the pure truth, and what a sad commentary that is, but this show . . . it comes as close as anything has to making me believe again.
You still give even the tiniest **** about fixing our world.
