Brad.... great piece as always. but what's the deal with giving that conspiracy theorists' book an advertising shout out?! By telling your audience the title I assume the Google hits have soared 🤦🏼‍♀️

I really enjoy the show for multiple different reasons such as to keep with the crazies of the world and America. I feel it is important to let you know something went wrong with today's recording I couldn't finish listening after 13 minutes.

Your bias is showing. You only mentioned negative issues in your coverage of Joe Biden. Why not mention his accomplishments? Why not cover both sides instead of calling him a "man of yesterday"? Every when his launch was, in part, framed around our best days still being ahead of us? Please do better.
