Over the past few years we have become frustrated by the lack of objective news coverage - so we decided to launch a podcast where we take a look at news from all sides of the political spectrum and try to sort through the fluff to see what is actual news, and what is bias. Sometimes it will be solo, and sometimes we'll have guests with viewpoints from all over the political spectrum.
To be clear, we're not unbiased - we all have biases, and that's normal. But we believe that it's not alright to pretend like we don't have them in order to push agendas. So we're going to be clear about the biases we have, and we want to invite people to have honest conversation and to truly research the items they see in the news. Many people only read the headlines of stories, but we encourage everyone to look deeper. And through our conversations with people who have opposing viewpoints our goal is to truly understand the views of people we may disagree with - and find some common ground.
