Mr. Malloy ,

Amazeballs!

Quite a pair comrades.

Excellent, what’s the piano theme?

An excellent and informative podcast with two knowledgeable and engaging hosts. I need to know what is the piano theme at the beginning of each episode. I can’t seem to find it!

Quiet & Fascinating

Sam & Matthew have a very comprehensive knowledge of right-wing ideas, but pair with a strong leftist critique.

They’re also very pleasant to listen to. Both in terms of their speech and the mix. Not sure who does their audio but it’s great!
