I wanted to like this...
I listened to at least 20 episodes of this. Some of the folks have some worthwhile insights, although the Hilary watch exemplifies to me the pitfalls of this beltway navel-gazing.But the real reason I can't bear to listen any more is because of the truly lousy (nonexistent?) sound engineering. The WORST I have ever encountered on a podcast. Seriously, if someone is getting paid to engineer this podcast, it's way past time for them to seek a new career. Getting matching levels for all the speakers is not that difficult.
Pretty bad and eye rolling
They don't have an ounce of wit or creativity. Which wouldn't be too bad if they didn't try so hard to be witty.
Being in Washington must really be soul sucking and isolating. Even the intro tune is uncreative, it's the jingle from the iPhoto slide show. Really?
I miss It's All Politics from NPR...
They're such insiders that they don't have an audience
This podcast could be really good but please stop being so cynical that you insult your audience. What does the Politico team think of House of Cards? Oh, turns out you guys hated it because you were too cool for it? Well guess what, the kind of people who would listen to your show watch House of Cards and we like it. And what about Meet the Press? Oh you guys are such "insiders" that you are bored by Meet the Press? Well the kind of people that you want to listen to your podcast watch the Sunday shows, and I can tell you that it is far more boring to listen to you talk about how boring they are for you. Stop being too cool for your audience.
