I learned more listening to the one minute preview than watching most of the Sunday morning talk shows. 538 FTW.
The media has lost its balance when dealing with politics and elections. It always feel as though the media controls this election and doesn't supply the facts.
This podcast I automatically subscribed because of Nate. Then listening to the first episode, it was refreshing to hear different speakers and having a level headed discussion about this election. They presented the information and provided details I didn't know about with certain candidates.
I am grateful this podcast exist because finally I found individuals who share similar ideals as me when it comes to this election and I cannot wait to learn more as we get closer to November. Thank you guys so much for creating this podcast!
The gold standard!
Love their website and their new podcast. After listening to the mainstream news prognosticate about the elections all day and hype a story, it is so refreshing to hear a podcast that isn't sensationalized. That breaks the polls and the elections down in a way that makes sense. Nate Silver and the team at fivethirtyeight help me keep my sanity during election season and their new podcast is sensational!
