Diverse group of viewpoints

No matter your ideology there will be episodes you disagree with and episodes you do, which is exactly how a podcast like this should be

Best podcast voice

Caleb Brown has the best podcast voice. But I enjoy how informative the show is, how it gets right to the point and doesn’t waste time. I also value how Cato frequently admits when it’s wrong, which is very seldom. PS school choice is not the nirvana you think it is. But I actually admire your hopefulness about it.
