Just unsubscribed. It just sunk in how this coverage is just another corporate Dem pushback to the progressive movement.

I have had private health insurance for my entire life connected to my job. It is defiantly better than most and I would love Medicare for all. Chaining insurance to employment doesn’t work!!! The moment that I change my job I can loose my doctors. Medicare for all protects all Americans. I will have my doctors no matter what. This is the only option that makes sense. I will only vote for a candidate in the primary that wants Medicare for all. A private healthcare company is only focused on profits not on people.

3 minutes in I just had to turn it off. Reporting this president as normal is a mistake.

Look, I'm no Biden fan, but clearly these millennial journalists have no clue why Biden made his comments. First, he was saying that he wasn't quite referred to as a child like the word "boy" means to black men, but he was dealing with condescending a-holes. That being said, as hateful as those segregationists were, at least there was dialogue across the isle unlike now where there is just hate. That is what his point was. These journalists are focusing too much on the who rather than the comparisons.

Shannon Domarski Interesting explanation. If Biden has a future he will have to explain himself at least this clearly.

I adore this podcast and NPR; however, is this a topic that should be covered? As Mara said, "This really was a greatest hits rally." Nothing changes, why cover it?

I'd like her to be careful about bashing the current president. Not sure how folks on the fence will respond to that.

Give me a break! The #GOP and #TreasonousTrump do not cate about congress or due process. They are obviously just stalling for time to help cover for Trump's crimes. Stop being so charitable to lying thieves!

This isn't partisan bickering here... #TreasonousTrump and the GOP are obviously still working with the Russians and anyone else that will help them retain power!
