New - and very informative
Well worth the time. Bret Stephens is an up and coming analyst that provides thoughtful commentary.
Interesting and No Obfuscation
Brett and Mary have a great rhythm and rapport in their comments. It's like listening to the conversation of your two thoughtful, educated, well-spoken friends. They are not afraid to use sarcasm, which makes it feel like a personal conversation with, like my title says, no bulls*%t. If you have an interest in foreign affairs and aren't afraid to hear from the moderate-right of the political spectrum, you will like this podcast.
Very biased views
The presenters are from from being fair in their discussions and just trying to obscure facts with their unsound political tendencies.
