I was very excited to hear some interesting facts or behind the scenes of our political candidates. Are they coffee drinkers? Do they care if the flowers in the room are Blue? Instead I hear how an impersonator took 30 hours to get Donald Trumps voice down. Not only does this interviewer NOT TRY to stay nuetral but its a HUGE JOKE. I was hoping for something a little more substancial.
Refreshing and interesting. Looking forward to future episodes.
Great Podcast from NBC
