A Thinking Person’s Podcast

Andrew Yang is an excellent interviewer but his real strength is finding amazing guests to interview. Andrew consistently finds experts in their field and shares their life's work with the audience.

His ability to find guests from a wide range of expertise is what makes the Podcast worth adding to your list. His interview with Jennifer Pahlka on her book Recoding America introduced me to a problem that I was not aware existed. Today’s show with Dan Pallotta motivated me to write this review.

If you are looking for honest, truthful information and practical solutions to our country's biggest problem, do yourself a favor and listen to The Forward.

Chef Karl ,

Progressive????

I thought you were a progressive… You now are supporting Dean over Marianne??? Ib’s has never been progressive until it suited him, just like Biden, he talks with no action. How much did he pay you??? I will never listen to you again.. You are as bad as Dean.

Gazaleh..... ,

Yang 2024, please?🙏🏽

The wide range of discussion topics covered here is hard to match. Too few pods “stay in their place” and are too ignorant, afraid, or disingenuous in their purpose to critically ask questions. That leads me to my next question: Andrew will you please run for Prez again??!?!
