Like listening to these young ladies. I don’t often agree with some of Their political positions but I find the information very useful and well researched. The production is excellent. Voices are clear and easy to understand which is very important when listening for and hour. I love that the challenge the system. It’s the only way to make improvements. I will love to hear an episode on the legality of the detention of the Jan 6 protesters for over a year without due process regardless of their opinion of guilt or innocence.
