Most balanced podcast available

Tremendous job giving both sides equal time and opportunity to make arguments. Great podcast if you just want to hear politicians talk and hear about policy. I genuinely appreciate the general lack of analysis by the hosts and the mostly dry reporting. It’s perfect for letting the listener form their own opinions.

The only thing I wish they would change is the number of times that the host trips over something they are reading on the teleprompter. Several times every episode is crazy for a professional news organization.

Host Is Too Liberal.

I appreciate getting to hear CSPAN’s audio recordings of interviews and speeches, but the host (I think it’s still Steve Skully, a former intern of Joe Biden and obvious liberal) is too biased. It’s totally fine for people to be liberal, conservative, indifferent, etc, and it’s fine for those people to have podcasts. Start a podcast and be as liberal or conservative as you want, just be honest about what you’re doing and where you’re coming from. Don’t try to act like you’re “above the fray” and simply stating facts and reporting the news, when really you’re trying to persuade people to adopt your view.
