Miss Michelle W ,

Incredibly original and funny!

Talented cast and sharp writing. Unavoidably binge-able. Perhaps the best thing about Capital is that is it is perfectly adapted to the medium of the podcast and works fantastically as an audio-only script— partially due to the fabulous editing. It manages to avoid the cheesiness of most radio/podcast comedy sketches (and plays). A great collaborative project!

very funny and clever pod ,

Sighhh more lefty bs

So called comedy

Lost its way

Starts as a sharply observed satire on our political problems, and if it had a coherent authorial voice it might have developed into something worthwhile. Unfortunately the cast are making it up as they go along which means it rapidly lapses into self indulgence and lacks a narrative arc to sustain it through six episodes.
