Kinda lost interest in even listening to this one once you said you have the rest behind a paywall.

It's a shame that this podcast seems intent on being melodramatic counter-propaganda. I wonder if its producers think it conveys any version of the truth or that it's merely a counterbalance to other lies.

This seemed like the least-reasonable, most propagandistic episode of the series. It's so bad, it greatly erodes the credibility of the podcast as a whole.

Very unfortunate audio quality on the phone interviews. Really hope you guys can improve it in the future.

@1:00:37: Strange that when you say, "least of all," you almost always seem to intend the opposite of what that phrase means.

The relentless cut-ins of uncited memes, movie-clips, etc. come across as childish attempts at inside jokes to signal that you're cool. Cut the puerile crap and just report.

@23:08: It undercuts the show's credibility a bit to use a phrase such as "on Ramadan" (versus "during Ramadan"), as if Ramadan were a day. It's the sort of subtle mistake one makes when they don't know what they're talking about.
