Political gabfest

Three very intelligent people but only John Dickerson makes sense and has an open mind. David and Emily are very pretentious and won’t try to understand conservative opinion and are so the reason that Trump got elected. John is great, a true journalist!

Insight with humanity

I look forward to this as the only podcast on American politics that I listen to. The perspective and insights are solid but not removed from the personalities and lives of the hosts. They have a great dynamic and put real effort into a long-running, consistent program.

Terrific trio

The chemistry between these three intellectuals is outstanding... The show is varied and, if anything, too short. Make no mistake, this show would not be the same without these three compats.. From Mr. Plotz's calm, clear intelligent 'voice', to John and Emiley's insights, views- add it all up and you have one of the finest shows on the airs.
