Sanity in a crazy world

I love this podcast that gives serious, insightful discussion of all things going on in and around Trump's administration. It seems to be an oasis of sanity in Trumpland.

Awesome... and scary.

I loved the show from the beginning, it's really fun to listen to. They interview a lot of different people with different beliefs but who, for the most part, agree on one thing: how scary and crazy seems to be D. Trump.
