I couldn’t agree more that “words matter”. If this is the show you are highlighting as you move more and more behind a paywall, it is a big mistake. National Security is only marginally better and imho neither are worth a paid subscription. The guest engages superficially, there is no real follow up by the questioners. This is not even an interview much less the kind of engaging dialogue to which Preet and Anne have accustomed listeners. This show will not make it and these two need to hone their skills before they are ready to stand along side the Cafe lineup.
I love Cafe Insider, especially the programs with Ann and Preet. I was however totally disgusted with the first Words Matter podcast featuring that weasel Rod Rosenstein. It was a total softball interview where he expressed his admiration for Jeff Sessions.
Dear PreetI love your podcast. I listen weekly.. and I learn something every week.I know you offer a discount to students and I applaud that... but what about senior citizens who are on a fixed income.Finally just listened to words matter,I found this podcast so upsetting it was Rod Rosenstein apologizing for Billy Bully Barr really do we need to hear this. Before sending out other podcasts Not your own I think you should review.
I love Preet & also words matter even though it has gone thru a LOT of hosts . Here is my take on the Rosenstein interview In my opinion he is a politician for sure . Or an expert in Dodge ball. I wonder if his reputation holds up unlike the Trump civil team .
I love Preet but struggle with paying, particularly when so many of us are unemployed. We need excellent insight into our legal and constitutional issues that the vast majority of US don’t understand. Tired of being sold and blocked for full access.
I look forward to the Preet podcast but am turned off by the continued pressure to subscribe for full episodes. Is not advertising revenue sufficient as it seems to be for the great majority of podcasts? Second, it’s all looking back such as why did so & so do such & such? With Trump related issues, and he generates so many issues, do you think he is positioning himself for other nefarious actions in the future? Such as is he getting in position to take over vote counting or cancelling methods of voting? Because he is looking more & more like a November loser unless he exerts some dictatorial control. And without interfering with the vote, he is unlikely to win or argue that he did win. So what is the best guess as to where this is going and what will be his legal basis to do the interference?
I unsubscribed. In the beginning it was excellent, current events, now the current events are behind a paywall. Everyone needs to make $, which I don’t have. The regular podcasts are like all the others. No incite. I will move along.
Not only is Preet Bharara calm, entertaining, and smart, but he covers material that's truly relevant to our Trump-infested age. I can't rate this podcast highly enough. Who knew that a tremendously fine legal mind, with a lot of connections to world-class guests, would visit the plebean world of podcasts. All I can say is, "lucky us!" And lucky you, if you listen to him.Preet's fine baritone voice can even make his occasional advertisements seem pleasant. That's not something that I say lightly!SO happy that the Insider private podcast is available to podcast readers. I can listen on the run, at whatever speed is appropriate. As if listener apps provide value!
