Love the show, love the viewpoints, also love that it doesn’t get too polarized. Wish it was weekly!
Finally, a podcast that can enrage most of us!
Absolutely love this podcast if for nothing about Jenn and Justin’s willingness to go to the wall to debate topics that could easily fall into cliches. Essential listening. And it has just about the right amount of Jesse Brown :)
That's it for me
As a Canadaland patron, I gave this show a chance. The title is a misnomer as the hosts don't actually disagree on anything of substance. Their flippant attitude toward an impending invasion in Venezuala, in the week that the vile war criminal Elliot Abrams was appointed to lead the drive to "restore democracy" there, made me realize that there's nothing of interest to be learned here. Would not recommend.
