This is a really good podcast

I enjoy the friendly, civilized discussions of different ideas. While I am a liberal, I get bored of discussions just cheerleading the same viewpoint. However, I don’t enjoy shouting and tearing people down. This show is on target for what I am looking for.

Center Right to Far Right

These hosts and guests should listen to another Slate podcast Amicus before they make these tone-deaf, middle-aged-white-people comments. I’m a middle-aged white person and I even find these analyses shallow.

Intelligent debate

In these times it’s great to hear intelligent people discuss the issues in the news with eloquence and integrity. Agree or disagree this is a great show with civilized conversation.
