Home run

The Trump Romney Biden cast was great. I listen to various casts for new thoughts, different insight and unique interpretations. You delivered. Keep it up.

Great Political Analysis

It’s wonderful to hear the insightful political analysis especially by Domenich and Hemingway. Your ability to step back from the details and provide a wider view is very helpful.

Such a great listen....

I am consistently pleased with the content and context, certainly atop 5 favorite Pod. Oddly... the first weeks in February 2020 casts, laughingly talk about the YEARS of misleading info amongst MSM colleagues - who knew it was BS “mostly” yet just plowed forward. I am not sure I could “sit on my hands” for the duration.
