Great Show but. . .

I would have given this podcast five stars except for one element that runs throught the entire podcast collection. Their not having a problem with expressing their conservative politics and sometimes in an indignant way while at the same time condeming others of doing the same but only if its a liberal viewpoint.

I love the show, reallly I do. I enjoy nostalgia butt this is not the only show I listen to regarding this interest. However, there seems to be this constant dig against liberal politics and complaining about liberal politics in media etc., but seemingly mostly about past topics that may have liberal influences but not conservative. This reaches a fever pitch in the episode titled, "The 1968 TV Season. . .". They complained about the television shows that at that time began expressing a liberal bend such as, The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour and, Laugh In. Their opinion is that entertainment/entertainment should keep their shows as apolitical as possible. I had to laugh because I had been listening to this podcast for a long time and the hosts have absolutely no problem with expressing their politcal bend as well as being somewhat confrontational about it by making statements along the line of if you don't like it to bad.

This was especially funny considering the episode I mentioned as they spend considerable time opining about the naughty liberals broadcasting their edginess and liberal view points, while at the same time doing the same thing they were expressing their feined concern.

They even continue on by insinuating how today's talk shows are doing the same thing and thus, leaving them adgitated and filled with stress lol.

Well. . . life is politics. One reason our country is in the pit it is in is because we are entertained to death. And for too long this apolitical stance when it came to our politics is silly at best and mind-numbing at worse.

That is my only complaint. I don't like when people talk out of both sides of their mouths especially concerning political stances. Saying someone should do it when they don't agree with their view while doing it yourself is hypocritical.
