It's great to see Sam back doing a podcast. I needed my Seder fix!
Majority Report returns!
I loved this when it was on Air America, and glad to see it's back! I Hope he still has his sound effects from then.
Sam Seder - best. political. commentator. ever.
I have listened to Sam Seder in all the incarnations of his political talk shows. They have always been insightful and entertaining. My only hope is that Sam somehow finds a way to take right wing callers, because that used to be my absolute favorite part of his radio show. No one can eviscerate right wing irrationality like Sam Seder!
