Intriguing fun

Hosts Lizzie and Arden create a perfect blend of cold hard facts with light banter and riffs that remind you to stay in the present and not get mired down with the technicalities and herstory of America. Each episode is like a flashback to that government AP class with your best friend. You will undoubtedly learn something, especially if you're a life-long citizen.
Thanks for the pod ladies and keep it up

Barely touch on subjects

Do yourself a favor and don’t waste your time. The hosts hardly dive into the subjects at hand and spend nearly the entire hour gossiping and chatting about their own personal lives. That’s fine if I was searching for valley girl gossip podcast, but not so much when your trying to learn more about certain subjects.

Fun With Fundamentals

This podcast is the perfect blend of the high school civics lesson you probably never got and a Grade-A New York comedy show. Arden and Lizzie do the leg work so I can sit back, enjoy, and feel smart when I talk to my friends about what’s happening in the world today. Thank you for making me look good, ladies!
