Three Martini Lunch is a funny, edgy and fast-paced podcast of the day's major political stories, hosted by Radio America's Greg Corombos and Jim Geraghty
Forest Fire Facts, Middle East Momentum, Public Backs Barrett
Join Jim and Greg for three good martinis! First, they credit NBC for actually reporting that a big reason for huge forest fires is poor government management and a refusal to diligently thin out forests to contain future fires. They're also thrilled to see polling showing 80 percent of Saudis expecting normalization of relations with Israel and 71 percent expecting it whether the Palestinians pursue a peace deal or not. And they're glad to see a majority of Americans approving the confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett and a huge majority opposing court packing.
10 Years of Three Martinis!
Join Jim and Greg as they mark ten years of the 3 Martini Lunch! First they discuss two stories so bad and crazy they're actually good. They discuss how the Democrats are planning to pack the Supreme Court and act like they had no choice because the GOP Senate filled a seat on the court just before an election. They also hammer New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo for saying the CDC and FDA cannot be trusted to tell the public if a coronavirus vaccine is safe. And they reflect back on a number of highlights from the 3 Martini Lunch over the past decade.

Good Polling Number for Barrett; Trump Struggling in Suburbs; A Misleading Headline
Chad Benson of Radio America joins Jim Geraghty of National Review for another Three Martini Lunch. First up, cheers to good polling numbers for Amy Coney Barrett. Speaking of polling, for round two Jim argues that if Trump loses, it will be because he lost the suburbs, and it will be largely because of personality, temperament, and how he treats people, not necessarily because of his policies. Finally, a discussion about a recent headline from the Brennan Center.
Good: Vaccine News; Bad: Court Packing; Crazy: Biden Being Biden

Part of my daily routine
Highly recommend this podcast; it’s a daily “must listen” especially during this chaotic time.
Why are there 3 Biden ads during each episode
I usually enjoy listening to these podcasts. Lately because of the Biden ads I stop listening to it. I don’t understand why you would put those heads on a show like the three martini lunch. Don’t you people understand your audience?
Short and Sweet
Really appreciate the concise way Jim and Greg talk through important things to know for the week. Sometimes you just don’t want to listen to someone rant or wax eloquent for hours and just want the key points. I introduced this podcast to my girlfriend, who was relatively new to the world of politics, and ever since we have been able to be on the same page with important information without needing to spend hours of the day reading articles and listening to long podcasts. Always love Jim’s dependable quips and sports references and Greg’s ability to laugh even after 3 crazy martinis.
