A quasi-daily podcast from Slate chronicling Donald Trump's rise to the presidency and his current administration. Jacob Weisberg, chairman of Slate, along with Slate chief political correspondent Jamelle Bouie, and writers Virginia Heffernan and Josh King, will be talking to journalists, historians, psychiatrists, and other experts to help explain who this man is and why this is happening, right now, in the United States of America.

Customer Reviews

Listen to the episode called “The GOP’s Top Trump Buster” first - it’s amazing

If you believe that you know what Republicans are like, as I did, then “The GOP’s Top Trump Buster” is a real eye-opener. At the 03:15 mark is an interview with Republican strategist Stuart Stevens, who holds nothing back as to why Trump is such a terrible candidate for the party and the country, while cracking jokes in the process. He’s proof that Republicans aren’t as awful as some may think. I’ve listened to the interview several times because it’s so illuminating.

At the other end of the spectrum, I couldn’t even finish “Why This Podcast Isn’t Neutral” - it bored me to tears.

Fun and fascinating

Good companion to the chaos, interesting discussions about various aspects of the trump phenomena. The blend of humor and analysis makes for a good format show, and is much less loud than cnn and other podcasts


Clearly an agenda to attack the Trump phenomena rather than try and understand it. Everything is viewed through simplistic good versus evil, black and white Hollywood style framework. The quality of the podcast is pretty high and if you hate Trump and enjoy signalling your moral superiority, this is probably a good podcast for you. I think Dan Carlin does a much better job of enlightening the listener about what has given rise to Trump as well as analysing the good and bad aspects of Trump. To be fair I only listened to a few of the podcasts so have a small sample size.
