Your Heard Tell Show is turning down the noise of the news cycle and getting to the information we need to discern our times by talking about how big loud news events like Donald Trump’s conviction, Hunter Biden’s conviction, and even the disaster that was January 6th all bring wide sweeping reactions but actually show things are holding up pretty good, despite the doomsaying and hand wringing online. The Caitlin Clark story added another twist as she was left off the US Olympic team and the talking heads and social media accounts lost their everloving minds, even though the correct basketball decision wasn’t the correct business decision. Host Andrew breaks down his recent writing on “misinformation” further and addresses some of the reaction and pushback. Plus, an example of how just following partisan politics can leave you missing the big picture and really important issues. We end on a good note, with Andrew’s beloved West Virginia receiving one of the most prestigious awards in all of food to a very deserving chef.

All that and more on this episode of Heard Tell.
