Let's talk politics in 10 minutes or less! Doug Payton gives his take on the politics and culture events of the day from his conservative perspective. But this is no long, drawn-out opinion piece. Each episode is 10 minutes or less, and usually covers 3 topics or so. The idea is to get you to look at topics from a different angle with information you've not heard from your regular blogs, or your Facebook or Twitter feeds. And the idea is, also, to get your feedback and thoughts so that we can all consider this.

Refined and Articulate.
Doug's podcast is very insightful and informative. He clearly puts a lot of thought and effort into composing episodes that are not only enlightening but also entertaining.
Its almost as good as having SNN back again!
I used to be an avid fan of Shire Network News. So I was thrilled to discover that Doug has continued doing his "Consider This" segments that used to be a staple on SNN.
I still miss SNN. But at least the ten minute format fits in better with my busy work life.
This is a great podcast - brief summaries of key political issues and news that may have been "overlooked" by the mainstream media, with on target commentary. Of course, that is my conservative's view ...... and if you don't consider yourself "conservative," then "Consider This" anyway -- you might learn something new!
