Fun Analysis of DC's Favorite Blood Sport

Kojo Nnamdi, the Guyana-born host of WAMU's (Washington DC NPR station) "The Kojo Nnamdi Show," presents an intelligent and fun hour discussing the District's favorite sport -- politics. Yes, the show gives the expected analysis of goings-on at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave and the Capitol, but the primary focus of "The D.C. Politics Hour" is the CITY of DC -- not the seat of the Federal Government. With resident analyst Jonetta Rose Barras -- and guests including former Gore 2000 campaign manager Dorothy Brizille -- Kojo puts local and national politicians on the hot seat, with penetrating and smart questions. Kojo, named "Washingtonian of the Year" for 2005, is an articulate and funny host, and the show provides thoughtful analysis and debate concerning the District and its residents -- providing a voice for citizens not represented in the Federal Government. (trivia: The idea for changing the slogan on DC license plates to "Taxation Without Representation" -- commentary on the fact that DC's residents pay federal taxes, but have no Representatives or Senators in Congress -- was first proposed on the "DC Politics Hour.")

Hate Kojo - but love the show

Something about Kojo's demeanor tends to rub me the wrong way; but for a really nice, insightful discussion of local politics with lots of the major players in DC, VA, and MD, I don't know that you can get much better than this. Good information, good analysis, good debate - an excellent way to stay informed about what's going on in the area.


I like the show, but a little bit to much of a liberal bias, and not very balanced.
PS: you can take Jonettas name off the podcast cover. She has been gone for about 3 years
