    Tom, I get cut off when listening to this podcast on impeachment??
    I want to hear what you have to say regarding this HOT topic!
    The hearings closed tonight abruptly, this is a WAR between our
    two parties, which is hurting our country in my opinion. You say
    at the beginning, which is all I can get, that this goes on all the time…I want to hear more . Please check on why I am having this
    difficulty. Hope you are well. Laura

    I think the problem must be at your end. I have played it through twice and others are having no problems. You may be having a weak wifi signal/

    Another excellent podcast. The juxtaposition of Neil Young and Charlie Chaplin at the end was well done. And not the obvious Neil Young either. I’ve rarely heard “Revolution Blues” played outside of my own music collection. Good choice. The song was on the obscure Watergate era album “On the Beach,” and the cover artwork included an Impeachment headline, even as the album title was meant to evoke images of the apocalyptic Nevill Shute novel and Gregory Peck movie.

    Thank you for the discussion of legitimacy; excellent description of how I have felt about politics, but have not been able to articulate with much clarity.
