Informative, professional, and wonderfully entertaining

My interest in politics has grown significantly in recent years, to the point that I like to write about current political events. Since then, I have been thinking about listening to a political podcast. This is the first one I chose.

This podcast is fantastically informative whilst also being wonderfully entertaining. Allison Michaels is a charming and relaxed host, who brings The Washington Post journalists on as guests to discuss the legal ramifications of some of President Trump’s decisions and actions. The podcast isn’t people ranting and Trump-bashing. It’s a professional and well structured discussion by journalists who are specialists in the field of the episode subject. The length of the episodes is great and it’s just a relaxing podcast to listen to.

I cannot recommend this podcast enough and I will be checking out more WaPo podcasts in the future. Great job all!
