This is a great listen. Get to hear viewpoints from both sides. Keep up the good work!
Detailed Commentary from inside the Beltway
I really like the Against The Grain podcast. It has perhaps the best opening music of any podcast I listen to (except maybe for Tom Bevan’s Show). Josh Kraushaar has guests from both sides of the aisle who offer deep insight of what is going on within the Beltway. He tackles topics from both sides and offers a nuanced take on the hot topics of each week. His knowledge and experience is evident from the questions he asks of his guests. His Word Association segment that ends each podcast elicits some of the most interesting comments from his guests, and can be more revealing than some of their previous answers. Definitely worth listening to if you enjoy politics, and want some of the best commentary from both sides of the political spectrum.
Against the Grain
Enjoyed the first podcast, hope can find more moderate voices such as Ryan Costello. Love to an interview with Mitt Romney, David Axelrod, and Paul Ryan after he retires from the House.
