Authoritative, informative, entertaining

David Lombardo and the Times Union team have done a marvelous job bringing this podcast alive, especially with David's 6-part special on the coup of 2009. I don't think I could have gotten a better sense of how it happened, and how it stopped, had I been standing in a hallway near the Senate chambers, or eavesdropping in the LCA newsroom. What a wonderful job David did getting everyone from Gov. Paterson on down to Diane Savino, to share the behind-the-scenes scoop. The frankness (and profanity) among some of those in the center of the storm is to die for. A true introduction to Albany politics for the outsider, and a refresher for those who were there back then. A delightfully weaved-together tale with sound bites, stories, and a clear production layout, bringing characters together. Who says state legislatures are boring? You won't, after hearing this excellent podcast! Oh and don't miss the musical stylings of Casey Seiler!

A timely walk down memory lane

David Lombardo does a public service to all people newly activated by 2016 to flip the state senate in 2018. I hope all the indivisible groups etc. set up listening groups for this wonderful informative podcast.

Dave: I hope you make more Albany centric podcasts in the future. I would say that each episode could even be a little longer and have even more explaining before each interviewee speaks. Can get a little confusing.
