best political content i have found
This is just perfect for someone like me. I do not have a background in politics or political science and this is a great resource for me to understand a lot more about what is going on in washington. I feel like the information i am getting is certainly opinionated, which is great, but not biased or loaded with language that leaves me feeling manipulated, like the news often does...
This podcast gives you an inside look of the political culture going on in D.C. They don’t just repeat the news, they explain how it applies and the consequences of congressional choices.
Had the chance to take a 4 day class with Matt and Mark and can’t say enough on their expertise and their ability to share that knowledge.
This is like inside baseball, if the catcher’s mitt could talk.
