Two American ex-pats, separated by 7500 kilometers and their levels of optimism, take on the issues of the day in the United States, Canada, Europe and the world. They hunt down news you might have missed, sometimes provide good insights, and shake their heads at the rampant idiocy in the world more often than can be considered healthy ... good thing they live in countries with socialized medicine!
Funny intelligent and interesting
I look forward to listening to these guys sporadic podcasts all the time since finding it recently. I like the show because it reflects a lot of my views and living in a society where media and the political dialogue is saturated with right-wing views it's nice to hear views that are either socialist or social democratic, on the interesting or insane news in the political world.
Too much focus on the us instead of Canada or Germany though and sometimes the German host's audio cuts out.
