Sam Seder - best. political. commentator. ever.
I have listened to Sam Seder in all the incarnations of his political talk shows. They have always been insightful and entertaining. My only hope is that Sam somehow finds a way to take right wing callers, because that used to be my absolute favorite part of his radio show. No one can eviscerate right wing irrationality like Sam Seder!
Well considered commentary on current politics
The best and most under-appreciated voices from radio is available once again. If only conservative talk radio personalities were as intellectually honest as Sam.
Sammy gets his groove back
Alright! Sammy is back! I loved the original Majority Report with Janeane and listened to it since day one. I also followed Sam through all his various incarnations since,...and there were quite a few! I'm glad he's back doing this show. Once the dust settles and he gets in the groove I'm sure this will take off. Hopefully a stepping stone to bigger things for Sam!
oh, before i forget,....Peaches!
