Customer Reviews

I never miss an episode.

I listen to it while driving to work on Monday morning.

As others have noted, the production value isn’t great, but the content is well worth the small amount of patience required.

Great Content, Atrocious Audio

I generally enjoy the podcast; most of the discussions are interesting and enlightening. But the sounds like they record everything to a .wav file using a microphone wrapped in a paper bag.

Great Guests; Amateur Audio & Host

Fantastic discussions between the hard-hitting and unapologetic guests (especially Cliff Schecter, Digby, and Gotta Laff). But the audio quality is lackluster and the host seems unsure of himself. A good alternative to the right-wing apologist and corporatist Sunday news shows. I just wish these guys had more money to invest in their infrastructure.
