Entertaining and informative

I thought this one might crater when David Rothkopf left but it has instead transformed into something different but equally good. The irreverent banter on what is going on inside the Beltway is priceless. A bit US-centric still but I think that may be its mandate.

very funny and clever pod ,

To left wing

If it was more balanced. It would be better
