An intelligent conversation about politics.
In an age of caustic political media, this pod is a conversational and intelligent romp through current issues, history, and ideas in current politics between to genuinely friendly but opposing viewpoints. In other words, it is not Hannity and Colmes. (That's a good thing.)
Intelligent, Friendly Disagreement
There are informed, intelligent individuals who can thoughtfully and cordially disagree? Who knew?
A great and fun political podcast
This podcast focuses mostly on politics but really deals with many cultural and social topics as well. It is really fun and enjoyable. I highly recommend it.
