What you hear upon clicking the link below will not soothe your nerves, or help you sleep better, because it isn’t “let me entertain you” mainstream media news … no celebrities or royals are acclaimed; no bellicose billionaires are lionized; no sappy “Happy” soundtrack plays in the background.
It’s AJC Radio news – and it’s real. What hosts Sam Thurman and Cliff Stewart have to say about the IRP6 and guests Gary York and George Mallinckrodt have to say about Florida prisons may make you squirm in your seat, or yell, or cry … perhaps even vomit.
Unpleasant as it will be, listening shouldn’t leave anyone immobilized.
Because these four aren’t.
And the next person they may help with their truth-telling may be a relative of yours. Or you.
