Things are not politics-as-usual when Ben Kissel gives his take on the three ring circus we can only call current events. In a time when the lines blur between politics, celebrity, criminal and zealot (often all four), this show gives a refreshing review of the news that calls it like it is. You won't get the cable news or late-night comedy version here. It's pretty much just a play by play with the filter turned waaaay down and in the end an odd kind of truth emerges. Like honest Abe himself knew well, people are ka-ray-zay as hell.
Smart and funny . . . all political views will laugh
I really like Ben Kissel's comedy. It is a mix of sophisticated cultural/political satire and his unique life experiences. I have followed him on other Podcasts over the past few years, and this is his best yet. He has a great command of the Podcast format, is well prepared and FUNNY! I look forward to my weekly downloads! Thanks Ben, keep it up.
I really, really wanted to like this. Am a big fan of Mr Parks from his SaOHA podcast and am dying for some more good political talk, in the vein of Slate's Political Gabfest but sadly, Marcus follows Kissel into "fake radio" voice territory. Kissel's delivery is so annoying I can't focus on what he's saying. Sadly, I pass.
