Essential listening during this election year

Insightful, educational, brilliant and hilarious. I'll ALMOST be sad when Trump loses as it'll mean this podcast will be over.

Informative, funny... scary!

If you are fascinated and horrified by the US elections, you can't miss this brilliant podcast. Gasp in horror as you listen to the Donald's pathetic, toddleresque tweats read by a great Trump impersonator. Hear testimonials from people who have spent time with this sorry excuse for a human being and expert political analysis from experts in the know. I never miss an episode. Thoroughly recommended.
