International listener

Mary explains US politics perfectly for the nonAmerican listener. Asked great questions too

Fantastic podcast - everything you didn’t know you needed to know

I love this podcast. The content is so diverse and I love how often it will delve into an historical perspective on what is happening now. Although some of the content is specifically US (I’m Australian) there is always enough background to understand and get invested in a particular topic.

Love this podcast

Mary Harris is just fricking joyful. She has my all time favourite radio voice. There is this thing she does where she’ll ask a question and after the person she’s speaking to gives their answer there is a small pause and she just says: “huh.” It is a wonderful quirk.
