Gotta love Lovett

An insightful look at current affairs from veterans of the Obama administration, with a dash of gallows humour.

Infuriatingly average

This podcast could be sooooo much better. The first half— discussing politics, is fantastic. The “chat” at the end is usually pretty boring. Either do one or the other! but the worst part is their lame AF improvised riffing and jokes during the advertisements. You’re not comedians!
