Thumbs Up from None Taken with Chris Paul
I'm on the left and there are few things I'd rather hear that measured and reasonable commentary from principled conservatives. Glad this podcast exists.
A liberal fan
I need a dose of intelligent right wing analysis like this to balance out the many Leftist voices I hear each day by virtue of living in San Francisco.
I am a self-avowed liberal, but my political stripes don't prevent me from enjoying informed counter arguments from conservatives. These gentlemen are not shrill pundits. You will find their perspectives edifying even if you disagree.
Not as stupid as you'd think!
I've been listening to The Editors or about a year now, in an effort to escape my elitist liberal bubble. Unlike the harsh truths of Alex Jones and Sean Hannity, Rihan and Rich have a way with words that doesn't make me want to blow my snowflakey brains out with my GP100.
Except for Dan McLaughlin, Michael Brendan Dougherty, Charles C.W. Cooke, and David Bahnsen, their contributors are mostly tolerable and seem to have a slight idea of what they're talking about. The Podcast is still heavy on the "I Feels," (they have a really cute segment where they go around the table and rate on a scale of (1) to (5) how likely they think it is for a policy to change with very little supporting arguments), but they do get into a fair bit of legitimate legislative analysis and discussion using actual verifiable data and research (well, mostly verifiable!). Also, despite being pretty reasonable people on the whole, for some reason they still think Ben Shapiro is not a joke. I don't get that. That's what knocked this down from a 5-star review alone.
I listen to them mostly on runs with my dog, and some of their particularly bad ideas really get me going! Keep it up guys!
