Come now, Brothers. Listening to the mendacity and snideness of RAWMs hardly ministers life, grieving the soul. Be gracious enough not to do this again.
“O send out your light and your truth; let them lead me.” Psalm 43.3ab
Otherwise, I thoroughly enjoy your podcast and tune in faithfully, so I’m giving it a five-star rating.

I actually thought I’d get some hard hitting interviews here, but the first one out of the box was Langford and Carville and Hunt let that guy actually get away with saying that Trump was not a racist, AND when it came to branding the Dems in Congress as just divisive, when Jesus Christ, McConnell was trumpeting that the Republicans were going to block EVERY move by Obama BEFORE the Mann even took the OATH! The idea that Carville and Hunt let that go is insulting. I cannot listen to a program that allows that kind of soft ball interview in these times. I am sorry to say this. I had to STOP myself from just turning the whole podcast off not 15 minutes in. Bai’s interview was better, but I still can’t stand what they let Langford get over. I used to really look forward to Carville as a truth teller, but what he did on that interview was NOT truth telling. Carville is better than that. Disappointing.

Smart. Interesting. Humorous. Informative.

Love everything about this podcast. The topics are always interesting and the conversation insightful. The hosts, Al Hunt, who is an American treasure, and, James Carville, well, where do I begin, has the sharpest wit and snappist commentary of anyone out there discussing politics today. Just love these guys.
