Personally, I’m a fan of Radio Dispatch and think they do a good job of covering issues many other outlets seem to overlook. It would be foolish to argue that they aren’t comparatively amateurish in relation to most of the other sources on the show and I know this will be a turn-off for some but I think they mostly make up for that with the relative uniqueness of their story choices that are worthy of broader awareness.
I’ve been listening to the Best of the Left for about 4 years now and this is the first time I’ve commented here.
Usually the standard of the material is really high and very thought-provoking, but the radio dispatch clip has let your show down today.
They were inarticulate, smug, rude, and just didn’t have a coherent point, frankly. It was like listening to two slightly drunk teenagers talk about something they only slightly understood, but still had strong opinions on.
In other words, I inwardly cringed, switched off the podcast, and went about setting up an account here to tell you to please be more careful about the clips you select. Please make sure they are from grown-ups who have a worthwhile, meaningful point to make.
As I said, I’ve been a listener and a fan for a long time, I love the show, and I wouldn’t want it to turn into something low-brow, mean, and snide.
Thanks for reading,
As usual, I love the show. I note this mainly because I hold the show to high standards. This clip does not match those standards, in my opinion.
