As a change from hearing Trumpian rhetoric, you could tune in to the BBC for 15-minute episodes of ex-president Obama reading from the first volume of his memoir. Available from 14 Dec 2020 for 45 days. Free - a lot cheaper than buying it at £35, (or even at £17.50 currently)[Discovery_Cards]-[Multi_Site]-[SL02]-[PS_SOUNDS~N~~APromisedLandByBarackObama]

Caught part of that yesterday in the car. Lovely man

Also in my book he’s the definition of “cool”.

I am listening too, he is a very good speaker and such a massive contrast to his successor! ( who we will be so very pleased to see the back of next month).

I’ve been listening to this - I think he’s such a lovely human being!

I'm enjoying this too. I also find his voice quite comforting

The interview he did with Professor David Olusuga recently, was very good too.
