With the political circus of the 2016 presidential election heating up, you can laugh or you can cry. Choose to laugh. Comedians and longtime friends W. Kamau Bell and Hari Kondabolu have a shared curiosity about politics and our constantly changing electoral landscape. Whether it's an interest in exposing the unjust or the absurd, you can count on Hari and Kamau to ask the important "why?" Why do we have super delegates? Why is it still so hard for people to vote? Why was Joe the Plumber a thing? They'll try to answer questions like those each and every week throughout the election.

Refeshing, Funny, and Educational
I was tricked into learning something while laughing at politics. Nicely played, you tricksters.
The greatest thing you'll ever listen to. You'll laugh your butt off, then be too busy laughing to hear people in the street trying to tell you to pick up your butt. 5 stars for great podcast, 0 stars for butt retention.
(I know there aren't any episodes yet I'm just excited because I trust you guys to do an amazing job)
Hold Up! Wait a Minute!
I really like the pause and explain a historical and or cultural reference. I have enjoyed the guests and like the approach of this show. Thanks.
