Description

Congress reached a deal to raise the debt ceiling enough to cover the government's spending for a few more months. Anemic job growth persists. Former president Trump is holding an Iowa rally this weekend and his continued flirtation with re-election has kept the Republican primary field on ice.

This episode: White House correspondent Ayesha Rascoe, congressional correspondent Kelsey Snell, chief economics correspondent Scott Horsley, Iowa Public Radio reporter Clay Masters, and senior political editor and correspondent Domenico Montanaro.

Being my first time here maybe my observations are unwelcome, but I'm not new to NPR, I've been listening since the start. My first observation is that the Ghetto accent of Rascoe really puts me off. It overshadows any observation she makes no matter how incitefull. I'm trying these podcasts as a means of keeping up, but at a time that meets my life schedule. Hopefully I can focus (and replay) on what is being said better than listening while doing other things and not able to stop and go back. This way I can better utilize a few trusted sources, rather than sorting through more sources, evaluating each one as I go.
