Great podcast

One of the more interesting podcasts (despite Nate Silver's shilling for Biden). Sometimes quite funny and Clare Maloney has some great lines. Highly recommended.

Data driven

The best possible podcast for data-driven geeks like me. Heaven on a memory stick.

The FiveThirtyEight - calm under pressure

The team works so hard with

- Articles to write
- Weekly podcast
- Impeachment coverage (as of this review writing)
- Democratic primary coverage (as of this review writing)
- Who knows what else

It’s amazing they can sound so eloquent and apply sharp analysis under this load. Yet they do! I look forward to my 538 podcasts arriving and hope the team takes a break when they can. We need them to stick around!
