Customer Reviews

MTV News is getting it right

I want to stand on a busy streetcorner with this podcast playing on a megaphone. I want to put it on every phone whether anyone asked for it or not(U2, hit me up).
Here is just the amount of snark the modern political discourse deserves, careful examination of issues that deserve much more reflection, wrapped in acidic commentary and served on a bed of moving poetry.
In a year where each week invents new and distressing ways to be more soul-destroying than the last, here is an oasis of "no, we're seeing this too."
Well done.

Pretty Good
