best podcast ever

This program is awesome in so many ways. I particularly love conversations about tough issues without the word “racist” being thrown to the other side.

Fair and respectful debating!

The debates are very clear and concise; there is no fighting for the spotlight or pointed comments. You can tell that each of the debaters have respect for each other and are willing to have a conversation about their different opinions which is very rare in the current social climate. This podcast is great for anyone to listen to, whether you are well versed in politics, or just a novice. The debaters articulate their thoughts well, and back up their opinions with facts to further explain their points. The follow up questions seem to be fair between different opinions as well, not one side is favored. It was a very engaging debate and kept me interested the entire time, even when I was in disagreement with the debater. It's interesting to hear opposing views bounce off of each other and how one side views the same concept differently than the other. I definitely learned a lot about both sides and opened my mind to different points of view on current issues in the U.S and around the world.
