Why was the $8 million held up by HHS to the Native people when Congress appropriated this money? Why did it take so long for it to be released? Who directed the money to be held up? Sounds like Ukraine all over again. 🙄

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.

Apparently I will have to Google this story of the shooting of this family going to the coffee shop to get the real story. What's with the rabbit hole? Why report it if you don't have the facts?
