Go to politics from the “other side”

I’m a conservative, but LOVE this podcast. I’m often looking for opposing points of view to keep myself learning. This podcast is certainly heavy on the left, but in a way that I can still relate to. This podcast challenges me to think differently and opens my mind to other ideas. I don’t get that from the buffoons at CNN, FoxNews, or MSNBC.

I’d Be Glad to Hear Some More

I followed Ian to this podcast after listening to his work on Under the Radar (a baseball podcast). I’m not partisan and perhaps there is a bit of a lean in this podcast but it didn’t seem obtrusive. I thought the pollster countered Ian well; I liked hearing the polling data/analysis. I understand that this podcast had been on hiatus but returned recently (in part because J Mason agreed to produce, shout out to him who I know from The Sleeper and the Bust and even Friends With Fantasy Benefits). As this strange chapter in American history unfolds I am hungry for sober, centered podcast content and I’m interested to hear more from this crew.
