Customer Reviews

Required listening to maintain your political sanity.

There's little more infuriating in today's political climate than listening to the countless lies spewing forth from the far-right. That's why I listen to Driftglass and Bluegal: their string of expletives is (ironically) some of the sanest, most dead-on accurate political commentary. And because they're not the mainstream's apologists, they're one of the only places you'll get the insights that history—not ideology—bring to the table. Driftglass's breadth and depth of knowledge is astounding, and Bluegal's nuanced perspectives are invaluable. Together, they make a team the mainstream media SHOULD ASPIRE TO, but will never reach, thanks to the very issues discussed on this podcast.

I hope these two podcasters will never find themselves beholden to anyone except themselves, ever.

Smug and Self-Congratulatory

Sometimes ones hears a podcast that explores the issues from both sides and honestly tries to present different points of view. This is not one of those podcasts. The main focus of most episodes seems to be ridicule, laughing about how stupid the political opposition is, and how smart "our team" is. If that is what you're looking for, look no further. Also a good source for nonstop profanity. Every once in awhile they make a good point, though. I'd still rather listen to this than the rightwing AM radio (which is what I'd hear all day at work if I didn't have my iPod.)

Speaking for the insightful left

Informed. Insightful. Funny. Sad that more people don't see the world with such clarity and articulation. Blue Gal and Drift Class are able to distill complicated issues into the proper context they should be viewed.
