Hosted by an independent-minded old school journo and belligerent centrist who tells the truth and isn't afraid to offend both sides, this 10-13 min daily podcast explains and analyzes the issues of the day from a different perspective. Because it emanates from San Diego -- a safe distance of more than 3,000 miles away from the "talk way" (the chatter corridor that connects New York and Washington -- it's not blinded by politics and partisanship. It's fair, but it's also tough. It doesn't set out to persuade you or convert you, only to make you think.
I hosted a radio show, and I had a caller whose words haunted me. Because they were untrue, insulting, defeatist and dangerous. Why do high-tech companies hire so many foreign workers -- often preferring them to American applicants? It's not what the caller insisted. Our pride won't let us admit the truth. But you can get it here.
