Best political podcast in 2015

The new kid in class has quickly become the best kid in class. Strong policy focus, less politics.

Hopefully the Weeds are Perennial

I’m really enjoying this podcast so far. Even though I may be a commie pinko liberal living in Denmark, my favourite so far was actually the conversation with Arthur C. Brooks. So I’d be in favour of more of those occasional interviews.

And though the team expressly denied interest in my opinion of the length of the podcast in the last episode – I’m gonna go ahead anyway and say I would actually prefer shorter episodes dropping several times a week. You’d still only have to sit in the studio once to record them, and your sponsors (once you get some!) would probably be very happy…

For those of you considering listening, I’m also an avid listener of the News Hour, Planet Money, Freakonomics, and Rachel Maddow. So if your interests overlap here, you might enjoy this one. I look forward to seeing how it develops.
