Customer Reviews

Insightful and delightful

Even though Guy Marzorati thinks in n out is better than shake shack.

This is how I get my news

They need to make as many of these as possible. The interviews are informative, the guests are from a wide political spectrum, and the journalism definitely represents me. I love this podcast and am a keen subscriber!

Content I haven’t heard yet

I should say, useful content I haven’t heard on every other political podcast.
