Professional, Entertaining, and Informative

Can a podcast be all three? Yeah, I think so. Especially when the two gentleman we hear in the podcast are running show. I just discovered this podcast and I am so glad I did. From now on, I will be a regular listener for sure. You should too. You might just learn a thing or two and have fun while doing it. This podcast is EXCELLENT...really enjoying.

Appreciated conversations but...

I like the way that Jim and Richard discuss the challenging issues that we face in society. While they at times come up with creative and interesting ideas that could address the divides that exist, often their “solutions” feel like pie in the sky middle class dreaming that won’t help us find solutions to many of our most pressing challenges (race, class, sexual orientation, and reproductive rights as examples). That said, I will keep listening to these engaging hosts for their optimism and hopeful tone.

Engaging and enlightening!

The affable hosts elicit unexpected and insightful responses from the most interesting authors on the current talk show/podcast circuit. Highly recommended!
