Explains American politics

Clarity, humour, no nonsense. Love Brian’s style. Looking forward to the next one. Good chemistry between the 2 journalists.

Good content, marred by very irritating style of delivery by Brian O Donovan

I find it hard to stick with an episode -although Jackie Fox is good, Brian O Donovan’s exaggerated delivery makes it sound like a game show rather than a politics podcast.

A great listen !!

Brian and Jackie present a great insight into USA right now by exploring cross generation reaction to some topical news. It’s on point and it’s humorous. the Ferraro Rocher joke was hilarious 🤣
