I think there are three categories of people when it comes to Talk Radio. You either LOVE it, HATE it, or IGNORE it. I generally love it. While I often have to turn it off because it gets a little too nasty or over-the-top, I always go back for more. Regardless of the stance that some hosts take, I have learned countless things about the world, politics and people.
My new favorite is Brother Beck. I never liked Glenn Beck's tv show until fairly recently. When I discovered where his radio show is on my XM radio, I began listening little by little. He is now my very favorite. I would say he is not as blatant nor "right wing" in his presentation than many others. I am pretty "right wing" myself, but I like his approach the best. His show is full of comedy, skits, bizzare comparisons and analogies that make sense. He and his staff are also incredibly funny! I drive along the beltway laughing out loud, all alone in my car! It's like listening to a clean version of a political Saturday Night Live, only much more thought-provoking and educational, too! For example. I knew nothing about Russia's issues with the country of Georgia and the energy problems that this may cause the entire world until I listened to his show last week. Do YOU know about that? Hm.... maybe it is time for a visit with Brother Beck.
