POLITICO takes you behind the scenes with Washington's power players to uncover what's really driving politics and policy in the nation’s capital.
Bonus: The Senators at the center of the 50-50 split
“If we miss this opportunity, God help us.” Joe Manchin and Lisa Murkowski. Two moderate senators smack in the middle — and on either side — of a split 50-50 Senate. On our first episode of Playbook Deep Dive, the two friends open up in a rare interview with POLITICO’s Burgess Everett. They get personal: about reconciliation, frustration over the Senate’s hurdles — even why Murkowski hogs the best fishing holes. And Manchin reveals a major endorsement, heard first on this show.

I've enjoyed any number of Glenn's podcasts during this "silly season" and post- but none more so than Maggie Haberman. An extraordinary intelligent political observer, I felt the exchange between interviewer and subject was candid, free-flowing, honest and insightful, even when they disagreed. I've loved Glenn's interviews throughout the election cycle, but this prompted me to write. Perhaps it was Maggie... kudos. A Canadian subscriber.
Glenn Thrush has a talent for getting insights out of guests, and insights into their thinking and character...
Glenn Thrush has an ability to humanize his guests. I never thought I would want to listen to Roger Stone or Ted Cruz, but Glenn really asks them the questions that allow them to show off their intelligence. Every time a new podcast comes out, I drop what I'm doing and listen to it. Can't believe it's free.
