Fresh take on key issues

If you’re looking for insightful and engaging coverage of hot topics in Illinois politics and policy developments, this is an awesome podcast. Fun, fresh, irreverent.

IL is better than this b/s*%t

If you are looking for far right hyperpartisan propaganda, you know you’ve found it when Dan Proft is involved (sadly Chicago trib). I prefer facts.

It slices, it dices, now for just $9.99, you can have this diminished government

This show is an infomercial for Jeannie Ives. They have a panel of conservatives tripping over each other to attack straw men. They rail against the influence of special interest groups in Springfield, but their guest is the head of the manufacturers’ lobby. They blast unions because they support everyday Illinoisans, while trying to make us sympathetic to the bosses’ lobbyist. C’mon. They are opposed to good middle class jobs simply because they are union. Paid for by a think tank, this is just marketing, and poorly done.
