New Take on Politics
This is a fantastically refreshing show! The two hosts take a totally new angle on what a political podcast could be. Most just recap the week's news, but these guys really zoom out and take a broader look at what's going on.
A MUST LISTEN for anyone who like politics and news!
It's already my favorite
This is definitely a show that EVERYONE should be tuning into. These guys really make you think about things in a new light as they talk about some of the tricks that politicans and the media use. Besides that their commentary is very engaging.
Fascinating and Informative Podcast
This podcast provides the listener with interesting insights in regards to the way politicians communicate their messages. Both Alex and Taylor did a great job explaining the reasoning behind the tone and language politicians use in an effort to elicit certain reactions from the public. They skillfully "peeled the onion" to shine a light on a subject rarely discussed in the media. I really enjoyed their perspective, easy rapport, and appreciated the learning opportunites therein as well. Looking forward to the next podcast. Keep up the good work!!!
