Well balanced podcast

Can Becky come back? I appreciate her point of view without the indignant attitude of Dan McKay. He needs to stop listening to Ben Shapiro and have a pint of view of his own. Shareen is lovely. I enjoy the well balanced point of view this podcast promotes. I listen every week. It is one of my top political podcasts.

Love this podcast

As someone who embarrassingly has no interest in politics, this podcast helps me understand the issues in a simple, informing way.

Middle is not represented at all

Natalie is more an interviewer than a voice. Not giving the middle a real voice is the real problem,
Every time Natalie interjects an idea outside of either side I almost die of shock. Probably twice, usually just just agrees with Sheeren. Also Dam hardly ever gets a follow up but Sheeren is almost always given a final statement. I don’t really think it’s sincerely fair discourse on both sides. I sw promise at times so I keep listening but really it’s just more of Sheeren and her annoying moral superiority which is so harmful from the left.
