Customer Reviews

I was *rapt ...

I listened to The Conservative Movement with Corey Robin. What a delight to hear smart people use substantive language to talk about big issues in a historical context. In a world of quick hits and fluff, I didn't realize just how much I was craving real examination. Thank you, Chris!

Fork in one hand, spoon I the other

tuck napkin into collar and wait for Chris Hayes to ladle out history and context from those in-the-know. No watery sixty second soups for us tonight kids, uncle Chris stirs his stew from the bottom up. What tender morsels await?

This is what news should be in 2018

Chris Hayes always has great conversations but just as they get going a bunch of commercials cut him off. This is so much of a better delivery and allows him to nail down specific topics in a longer format with people that know a lot in each area. Very enjoyable.
