The On Point show is brilliantly done. They foster philosophical and political conflict on their show that stays at the high level of civil discourse. Their topics are timely and weighty. Listening to their program makes a listener well informed.
The host, Sam Harris, has the type of conversational style that can really enrage the engageable people of the world. I don't know if it's a touch of #Asperger's that appears as violent arrogance that sets people off, but I haven't found him enraging. The Making Sense podcast used to be called the Waking Up podcast. It's worth it to listen to them all. I often have disagreements with Sam's content, and many times his guests have aired my grievances for me. Sam handles it with deft dialogue in a way I would like to be handled if somebody thought I was wrong.
I wish all news commentary with guests would go as this show does.
This show is a lot like the #PlanetMoney #Podcast but the shows cover different content. This show's interviews are rarely confrontational, and even if they are it's hard to tell, but they aren't covering fluff either like a lot of finance programs do.
I find the reporting on this podcast the least biased and the most revealing of any financial news shows I have ever listened to. That's not to say I don't know equally great reporting from some other sources, but this one is great.
I didn't feel like putting the work of Katy Stoll & Cody Johnston on this list at first because they aren't like some officially recognized news company, but the content is—in a way—higher quality than the "Real News" because they aren't yoked around by their station owners.
Their comedic delivery with ample—and due—sarcasm peppered with snark makes learning about the devicive, deplorable things going on somewhat less depressing and palatable. They are timely but not rushed, and they are detailed, but not wordy in their reporting. They cite sources appropriately. They are defacto real news.
Their topics are always timely. They center their talks on issues of power imbalances in the #USA and sometimes the world. They have an air of #Comedy to their reporting/round table discussion. I believe most (if not all) of the members had official positions in the Obama administration. It seems like they always, "give the game away."
Prof. Galloway is a pulls-no-punches, dead-pan comedy type of hard-hitting reporter on the state of affairs in most significant business enterprises. He doesn't hide his high moral ideals while he chastizes the shameless business practices of titans. Here's just one example:
I was searching duck-duck-go for images of "News Sources" to come up with an icon idea for this forum and that image caught my eye. I thought I was going to steal it so I wanted to attribute it to them and the article made me like them, especially this image:
P.S. this is intended as an #exemplar post. I literally didn't know that news source existed before making this community forum account. Also, I won't be posting anymore news sources. It's up to the community members to post theirs and be prepared to engage in dialogue to defend them.
