Thank you, sir. May I have another?

Love the ‘cast. Need it to happen more often. Record your Zoom audio, edit and add the intro music. Done! Once a month - or whenever - not bueno. Let’s have more and more regular. Like an audio bran muffin!

best political content i have found

This is just perfect for someone like me. I do not have a background in politics or political science and this is a great resource for me to understand a lot more about what is going on in washington. I feel like the information i am getting is certainly opinionated, which is great, but not biased or loaded with language that leaves me feeling manipulated, like the news often does...

I think this could be so informative but when everyone is speaking at the same time, it’s frustrating as a listener.
