Phenomenal!

Great podcast that offers a relevant and interesting perspective.

Amazing! One of my favorite pods!

Would love a little bit more substance and policy to a ease up with the polling comparisons. Anyone looking for a little bit more meat on the bone I recommend Pod save the World which has a little bit of a wider scope.

Unfortunately the content of this podcast can be summed up to be anti intellectual pandering to the beat of a popular zeitgeist. Dig deeper, dig better and what’s more important, please do fact checks before you let people with huge names rant on any further in public.
