Customer Reviews

David - Let Your Guests Speak

I love David's obvious experience and intelligence in politics. I also like the guests he had on. But if he wants to keep me interested; he has to stop interrupting his guests and listen - so that we can listen and hear what it is they have to say. So, please, David, when you ask a question, sit back and listen. And when you want to interject; count to 10 and give us listeners breathing room.

a simple request

David, please stop interrupting your guests. We all get it that you're very knowledgeable about political history.

Lacking Diverse Guests

While the content is always high quality, there is a severe lack of diversity in the guests - most are white men, at least since I started listening in the last two months. Please work for more diversity - if you look, you'll find it.
