Factually seems to have a more one sided approach than Adam’s other show. To an extent, that’s fine, but I’m so tired of being told I’m basically a racist and ignorant if I’m white, a Republican, or voted for Trump. I’m probably a pretty conservative person, but honestly I don’t know where I fall on the spectrum because I try to keep an open mind. I usually enjoy Adam’s perspective to help me see things from another point of view, but episode 30 about the economy really bothered me. The racism word was thrown around quite a bit, without any direct evidence or examples. There are a couple other episodes that are the same way, but #30 really stuck out in that regard. I have a hard time accepting a government that will continually gain more and more control over money that is *supposed* to be given back to society in the form of services like healthcare, college loan forgiveness, retirement packages, etc. and was hoping this episode would give me something to think about. Instead, I thought it missed the conservative’s perspective, and maybe even dismissed it entirely. There’s something to be said for limiting the money that is filtered through the hands of politicians, but a lot of the Factually episodes seem eager to do the opposite. What about making it easier for people to pay for things with their own money without filtering everything through our government?
Anyways, the episodes are worth a listen, and overall I do really enjoy how Adam does the show. I’m just a bit disappointed its not as balanced as his other program Adam Ruins Everything, but you could tell even that show had its left leanings. I’ll keep following Adam’s work regardless.
