The Lt. Gov of NY is the lady who cried wolf after months and months of talking of imminent doom. Credibility lost.

I'll really miss this one. The content was great, but I'm not going to pay. Why couldn't they sprinkle 15-second ads through the podcast? It would be easier to listen to such an ad than to fast-forward 15 seconds. It's especially irrititating that I subscribe to XM, where I can hear this on Bloomberg Radio, but need to pay additional money for the podcast. Unsubscribe. Fail.
