Fun and interesting and very informative

These two people go together like peas and carrots. They do their research and present the information in clear and timely ways. I never miss a new podcast and I enjoy every minute of these episodes while learning so much. And yes, I support the station just because of this podcast. Checkout the website!!

This is a great show!

I started listening to this show about a month ago. It’s very informative, factual and very well researched. Nick and Hannah’s enthusiasm for the Constitution and the workings of government are contagious! Bravo and well done to the team who produces this wonderful podcast. They are stewards of American democracy.
