Post Mitt Romney Republicans???

All scum... Jebb Bush, Marco Rubio - that's what Sarah had her hopes on? Sorry, as a gay man, I don't get LGBTQ Republicans - kinda like Gay Catholics. Now she's quoting Paul Ryan... the more I listen, the more I despair... They hate you - Get Out!

I have the luxury of looking at this from our "Liberal Party" governed Australia... which is what we think of right wing.

But of course putting up Hilary was a HUGE mistake - you just need to have read Hitchen's "No One Left To Lie To" to realise that she was tainted.

I wish you, and my American firends, of whom I have many, the best way through your Pandaemic problems!

Extremely good

Far above average insight.

Sutractable ,

Excellent interviews, well presented pod.

Quite a few political podcasts feel a little lazy to me.. a bunch of not necessarily articulate people thrashing out ideas. The Good Fight is far from that. Mounk has worked through his points and his interviews are well researched with questions that aren't the stock standard. The result is a more in-depth and throughful analysis of current times.
I'm always very happy to find another episode in my feed.
