friendly and also informative on conservative perspectives of current politics

I probably represent one of Commentary’s liberal listeners; at least, I think that education should be accessible to anyone who has a genuine desire to really learn (though it should not be simply free) and I think some (sensible) form of health care should be available to everyone – because not everyone is fortunate enough to get a good break in life, get the professional job and the retirement package, even well educated people. I guess that is not so much of a conservative viewpoint.

I stumbled on Commentary as a result of wanting to understand what in the world was in the minds of conservatives after observing the 2016 election. (I was born, grew up, and was mostly educated in the US but I have spent many years abroad now. To me, it seemed like the US had gone completely mad.)

I found a friendly environment at Commentary where sensible people discussed current events in an intellectually stimulating way and I have learned quite a number of things from the jPod, Noah, Abe and now Christine (taking the place of Sohrab Amari who moved to the NY Post). Commentary has been very educational and clear about why they see things the way they do. They are also sensible about their views and can be both critical about the president when he is largely wrong but willing to praise him on occasions when he finally does something right. I obviously cannot always agree with everything they say, but at least they present an informed and intelligent case for why they see things the way they do, and sometimes that has even changed my opinion.

I’ve been listening to this biweekly podcast for almost 1 year now. They have helped calm my spirit and persuaded me that America has not gone utterly mad, there are a few sane conservatives (and liberals) left in the USA. For a conservative perspective on current events, Commentary is definitely a place that is intellectually stimulating, often well informed, sane, and, if nothing else, certainly educational. It also sometimes offers a vantage point that the mainstream (often liberal) media can fail (or neglect) to express.

At least you have proper intro and closing music

And you don't keep talking about how you don't know what your doing with podcasts.
