Came for the speech writers...

Started listening from the start, love the insider view, they provide great perspective on some difficult issues. American politics is hard to dissect ( check out some of these reviews? ) ... this Podcast has always helped in sorting out what is really important and what is just noise.

Great News Source

Canadian here, I like listening to this show to understand what’s going on in America (it affects us all). Plus I’ve come to really like the hosts.

My one critique is that it is a bit bro-y. But you know what you’re getting into.

Going downhill…

I have been listening since January 2017, never missing an episode. But it feels like the pod has jumped the shark since the Democratic Primaries of 2020. The Dan Pfeiffer and Jon Favreau Thursday show remains afloat, but the Monday pod with the three hosts is just an empty calorie meal. Just too shallow and “spin” of a podcast with no actual content or analysis on Mondays.
I listen less and less and the ads are actually the best part of the Monday pods.
I guess all good things come to an end.
On the plus side, they are obviously good guys and have great chemistry. Also the activism to get people to vote in 2020 is to be lauded.
