Tired of liberals and conservatives screaming partisan talking points? We were, and so we created The Politics Guys as a sane and civil alternative. Each week, a liberal and a conservative talk *to*, not at each other, in an attempt to better understand the week in politics & policy. We're not about scoring cheap partisan points or preaching to the ideological choir. We reject the notion that people who see the world differently are either stupid or evil. Our mission is to promote a shared, evidence-based understanding of American politics and policy. We hope you'll join us.

    Election Stealing, Presidential Transition, COVID Stimulus, Judy Shelton

    This week Mike and Jay lead off with Rudy Giuliani - dangerous demagogue or tinfoil hat on top of a bad dye job? Then its on to the unenviable position of the GSA "ascertaining" which candidate is "apparently successful."  That’s followed by thoughts on if and when the congressional COVID response shows up and Judy Shelton and Fed independence.
