Such a Great Podcast!
I love listening to Kevin and Josh talk and debate politics and government issues here. I appreciate that they think things through and don’t hate on people that think differently. If you like politics and the such, but hate hearing people yelling at each other and spewing insults because they have a difference of opinion, this podcast is for you. Highly recommend. 👍🏻
PLEASE MAKE MORE, GUYS! PLEASE!
This podcast needs a revival. We need a second podcast awakening in the name of The legislature, executive, and judiciary. Amen
Although I don’t always agree with everything they say, this is a cool podcast
