Thorough and Fair, NOT Biased.

Anyone who goes into publishing on political subject has an agenda. However, I feel Marty West does an admirable job of fairly presenting counter arguments without deriding alternate perspectives. He also takes the time to point out both the strengths and short comings of studies that pertain to the topic being discussed.

Great Content Needs Engineering

I love the content in this podcast, but it’s recorded with levels that are too low to hear without cranking it. If the engineering could be fixed it would be worth five stars.
