So enlightened!

This is my new favourite podcast.

sharp funny informed progressive

Humor and sharp back-and-forth that isn't just an add-on but is organic to the progressive information and opinion. Smart, funny people with ideas talking to people who know what they are talking about. Love it!

Great podcast

Matt and Katie throw down the truth, the guests throw down the truth, they are all useful idiots. And it should be known as a badge of honour. Un-useful idiots like those at MSNBC and Pod Save America really suck. They are very useless idiots.
