One Of my favorite podcasts

I love this podcast so much! It’s better than other politics podcasts out there because it’s not biased and focused on data & numbers. So good!

Too one sided

Commentators all lean liberal. I would rather listen to balanced discussions.

Why Nate are you still necessary

After two botched elections and refusing to take any responsibility, why is this podcast still relevant. I haven’t heard anything from this crew on how they could take any responsibility at all. They don’t run the polls but they do weight them! Enough with this irrelevance. Waste of time
