This isn't real political discussion. I lean left on most issues but this is too much. If you want to hear 2 pro-Clinton guys talk about how bad Trump is while ignoring actual news stories about Hillary's problems (Hello recent DOJ findings) then this is for you. If you want real and unbiased political discussion--don't waste your time.
Love Bill Simmons, but this is the best Ringer podcast.
Turning too far left
Pay close attention to recent reviews complaining about extreme bias. I'm not a conservative by any means, but I'm turned off by their smugness and lack of willingness to even try to understand more than one side of every issue (theirs, of course......the right one).
At first, I loved the podcast. The guys can be witty and entertaining. Then, the last 3-4 episodes jumped the shark. This brand of overly-intelligent and arrogant liberalism is precisely what allows Trump to get the support he does. And the hosts are too smart to even notice it.
Simmons is taking a chance keeping this on his network if they continue to be so biased. Headed down the Deadspin path.
