The Ragin' Moderate offers a refreshing and frank perspective on current political issues. I never felt persuaded to any particular side and appreciated the consistent use of factual evidence and historical data. This is for people searching for logical dialogue around often polarizing topics.
I love the fresh perspective that this podcast brings to the table. It is equal parts entertaining (the different voices and sound effects are a fun touch!) and informative. I look forward to hearing more of this podcast and from Cinderblock Studios in general!
The Raging Moderate is an engaging and non-biased source of all modern day issues sweeping our nation. I've learned so much from The Raging Moderate in just the first few episodes, and I cannot wait to continue to listen as more and more episodes are released. I had never laughed to the point of tears while listening to or discussing such serious topics, but The Raging Moderate brings it to that level. Switching from serious to hilarious and everywhere in between, this is truly a fantastic podcast.
