Customer Reviews

Fresh, timely & relevant to todays big questions in society

Burt seems to be able to examine the underlying powers and challenges seeming hell bent on destroying this experiment called democracy - Rick Pickford Chair - Seacoast Arts & Cultural Alliance

From the progressive point of view

About democracy and the state of the people's power today, not only in the US, but how events worldwide may influence our democracy. Host is curious and wants to learn and share how democracy is and is not functioning for all.

Good for people from left

Sometimes Interesting discussions and guests.

To be honest, I would give it 4 stars except with ratings inflation that would do them a disservice. I do think people should know about it and decide for themselves.
