Best political podcast
The Sit and Spin Room with LOLGOP and Eclectablog is my favorite political podcast - and I listen to a ton of them. The guys are the most astute observers of the current political moment and discuss real issues with great insight and wit. This podcast is definitely worth your time!
Not just funny. Very smart
Full disclosure: @LOLGOP is a friend. But this isn't a "my friend has a podcast" podcast. It's the most information-packed political podcast I've heard. You're bound to learn things about Michigan (where they're based) and national politics you won't hear anywhere else, like an in-depth analysis of a seat up for grabs in Newt Gingrich's old district outside Atlanta. There's none of the Trump despair you hear on a lot of political pods - this is just a chance to listen in on two very smart guys in deep strategy mode. Fascinating whatever your beliefs.
Would recommend to everyone!
