The brand new Sputnik show, which airs weekdays, aims to help its audience think more deeply about the issues raised by offering them both the liberal and conservative viewpoints and encouraging them to draw their own conclusions. The show has already received very positive feedback from listeners who have praised the hosts for their willingness to hear the other’s view and for their skills as investigative reporters.
Commenting, Lee Stranahan said: “I love doing radio, which I believe is one of the best platforms for me to present the investigative journalism that I’m known for. Sputnik offered me a great platform – five days a week, available around the world online and on Washington, DC-area radio, as well as a great co-host, Garland Nixon.”
“I chose to come to Radio Sputnik because it allows me to pursue my interests and express my deeply held beliefs without the constraints of the traditional commercial media. I hope to expose our listeners to progressive social and political positions in way that is both entertaining and enlightening,” Garland Nixon added.
Despite holding vastly different political views and advocating sharply contrasting opinions, both Stranahan and Nixon remain civil and collegial with one another, proving that a difference in point of view does not mean that people cannot get on with one another. The hosts, as well as Sputnik more broadly, hope that their working relationship will be an example for people to follow, especially given the lack of courtesy and friendliness in the modern political and media landscape.
