How can’t you love this?!?!

Always amazing

Ps. People are poop heads on their comments re voice re....these are serious journalists. Talking to us naturally. Not some hyper produced thing. Be nice. You would t want someone to pick on you for dumb stuff either. Get a dig in on a point or a fact - go be grumpy somewhere else

Great if you can stand sudden sharp noise.

A good, informative podcast, but Matt Yglesias's screeching voice is painful, especially at the opening of his sentences (particularly those where he's raising his voice to talk over someone, interrupting him or her (usually her)), where the first few syllables are like an Xacto knife cutting into one's skull. Can't they engineer out the pain? Can't Ezra Klein host? If not, listen at a very low volume so you don't get a headache that makes your eyeballs feel like they're going to pop.

Also, Sarah's weird interspersed combined upspeaking while laughing as she says something (as if to say "How crazy is that?) is really annoying.

Good substance, terrible delivery

Wow - considering my own irritation and a lot of other comments, how is Matthew on this show? Has neither the voice inflection, delivery nor verbal acumen to be recorded and distributed. I can’t get through each episode without being annoyed. Shame, because the topics are poignant. But, unsubscribing.
