    Are We A Democracy? Or Are We A Republic?

    There's a complaint we get pretty often around here, that our tagline contains the word "democracy," but the United States is *actually* a republic. So...do we need to make a change?

Listener supported?

Good show, occasional left bias is exposed but overall informative. My only question, you constantly beg for money and claim the show is expressly listener supported. And then I get to listen to a 30 second indeed advertisement. What’s up with that?

Left bias exposed

Wow. Generally this podcast provides good information. However this episode only had examples of disinformation and misinformation from the right. No mention of the Russia hoax, Clinton email scandal and others from the left. Very disingenuous and intellectually dishonest. But what would one expect from the Brookings Institution, who is as far left as one could be. Need to provide balanced information and leave the bias out.

Great for students and teachers

I assign or recommend these episodes in my government class. Informative, succinct and entertaining.
