    In the opener, we meet first term Congressman Seth McGuire, who’s embroiled in a terrible PR disaster. He interacts mostly with his chief of staff, Olivia Huff and his assistant, Gita Subramanium, both of whom are way more politically savvy, and try to counsel him into “playing the game.” Beat down and disheartened, Seth is at the end of his rope. But the lightning of inspiration strikes when he’s least expecting it – while listening to right-wing talk radio. Directed by J S Mayank. Written by J S Mayank & David Carlyle. Produced by J S Mayank, David Carlyle, Jeremy Gordon, Spencer Garrett. Cast: Patrick J Adams, Autumn Reeser, Lorien Haynes, Kalpana Pot, Mark Atteberry, Katherine Castra, Dana Bash, and Ming-Na Wen.

Great Show

I’m not a big fan of scripted podcast shows. However, this show is phenomenal and addictive. Heard the entire first season in one night and found the dialogue well written. Wonderful job on the show.

Awful

Wow…..just awful.

Totally agree with the politics, but the podcast… not great

First off- my poor review isn’t due to the politics of this show. I totally agree with them. But the show seems to be just a series of similar conversations with a guy saying “I have a crazy idea! But maybe, maybe it just might work!” Without any further explanation on how it might work. It’s literally just that, repeated over and over with different people gasping and saying “that’s a crazy idea! Whaaat!”. It’d be a lot better if yall went in depth about **how** giving a million dollars to every citizen would help the country. Because that would get the listener invested in the idea. Otherwise it just feels like you’re listening to some self righteous dude with an undiagnosed personality disorder blow up at people in order to make himself feel like a tortured political genius. And just when you think they might describe how it would work, they don’t.
