Cathartic

A good way to feel sane again

Not a good podcast

Been listening to this for many years now (since keeping it 1600 days). Pod Save America pretty much reflects all that is wrong with US politics. They spend an hour insulting their ideological opponents, hating on Trump and the republicans. It gets very tiresome. One dimensional and you won’t learn anything from this show except how broken parts of the Democratic Party are.

Interviews with politicians (who are all Dems) are sycophantic and fawning with no critical questioning whatsoever.

The guys are obviously smart and could provide a much better service to their listeners without compromising their political beliefs. Tedious, toxic stuff.
