How curious that a discussion on gun rights and violence in America is brought to you by the Walton Foundation, the owners of Walmart who ban violent video games but keep the actual guns on store shelves.

I am very excited to vote for Andrew Yang for 2020! I really hope the media and cable MSM gives more opportunity for Yang to talk about his policies

why do you waste my last five minutes in each podcast? I don't care about what you can't let go. just report news. there's plenty without fluffy filler and snarky editorializing.

Lowell Hennigs Yeah. When they say “after the break, can’t let it go”. Just turn off the podcast. End of story 🤦🏻‍♂️

Michael Jones they have the time...why not use it for more news? That's the actual question.
