Really interesting

Great podcast. The only thing is that some of the episodes are a bit rough in terms of editing. At some points when he screw up you can hear “3. 2. 1.” And then re read that line. But a part from that, wonderful!!

Running is a cruel mistress ,

Smart funny and informative

Great context and very enjoyable not only for the political junkie but just for the joy of listening to someone who clearly loves his subject

Can’t wait!

Can’t wait for the 3 part Whistlestop John will be presenting on the 2016 election. Coming out…let’s say in 2020!
