Robert and Francis...the deep state whisperers.

Seriously, very informative discussion, terrific recognition and airtime for dedicated government officials and, remarkably, fun listening.

Looking forward to season three!

Conversational, useful, insightful and with a dollop of much appreciated humor. Nice work Robert and Francis. For those of us who care about Federal management issues, this is a great resource.
