Good lively analysis

Good lively analysis and covers a good number of topics. Just want to hear more Scott and Lisa and less Tim interrupting. Would benefit from clearer chairing to allow all four clever voices 🙂

Love it

Great fun. I’d love to hear a bit more of what’s going on in contested seats and Māori seats.

Undeniable Wit ,

Good.

A pretty good political podcast from some very good journalists. My only gripe is that Guyon and Tim need to differentiate their voices better.
