Good discussion from time to time

I like this podcast but some shows run around chasing their tail. Certainly not an objective take on current affairs- this is for the more liberal-inclined listener. And God David Plotz is irritating. That said, I begrudgingly put this on my playlist every week.

Three amigos are great

Great when the three main hosts are there - when one leaves, the magic dies a little. But still well worth an hour a week.

My favourite podcast

I've been listening to this since the summer of 2008 and it has remained my favourite of all the many podcasts I listen to. I enjoy the interaction between the three presenters, it's one I'll always play next when it comes in on Thursday night or Friday morning.
