Phenomenal podcast

The fivethirtyeight politics crew is intelligent, yet ever relatable. Must listen for political junkies and for those who just want to keep in the know about politics today.

Lack of diversity is deafening

The analysis is often interesting and I appreciate it. What continues to be disappointing to me is the lack of racial/ethnic diversity on this podcast. They unsubtly brought in Perry Bacon Jr. for the recent episode entitled “Trump’s Racist Tweets.” The fact that you recognize how ridiculous it would’ve been to have only white reporters comment on that news makes it clear that you can see the problem... But the real question is, do you think the subject of racist tweets is the only circumstance in which the perspective of a person of color could be informative? The cultural and ethnic background of the reporter matters, regardless of what they are reporting on. Perspectives matter, and this podcast often presents one perspective using four voices. I enjoy listening to the analysis, which is why I wish at least one host who asked/investigated/commented on the questions that often seem obvious to me as a non-white second gen immigrant (and which never come up among the four main hosts).

Exit interview!

Keep up the good work in digging deep on what’s going on. Super helpful to hear a candid response by these past candidates to the current situation. Thank you for doing this service for all of us!
