Essential Viewing!

I found this programme on CNN shortly after Donald Trump became President & it has now become my go-to daily update on US politics. I am British & live in the UK but, as our politics are inextricably linked with those of the US, I believe it’s critical to have an up-to-date overview of the key happenings & this programme/podcast certainly provides it. Kate Bolduan has a unique presentation style: she grasps the impact of key events instantly & makes observations, or fires questions at her panel, in a brilliantly sharp, perfectly detailed, witty & entertaining way. I look forward to watching this every weekday now & am deeply disappointed if Kate is being covered by a CNN colleague as, despite their undoubted professionalism, they simply don’t have Kate’s monumentally sharp grasp, wit or delivery. I’m amazed we don’t see Kate on other programmes; she is perfect for presenting the ludicrous antics of the Trump presidency & the frantic chaos in the West Wing, so would be the ideal presenter for any close-up scrutiny of specific political subjects related to this administration. More Kate please & thank goodness she’s back from her recent break, she was missed terribly!

Fantastic podcast

I first started watching this show during the presidential election, and found it insightful with fantastic in depth analysis, delivered with good humour. It is a well balanced show that looks at both sides of the US political debates. Well hosted, and a truly enjoyable listen.
