Excellent use of myPodcast time!!
Loved the COVID mask and GOP draft informing and fun..
Worst guest ever
The last show about how likely a civil war was one of the worst guests I have ever heard… Let me sum it up… “Republicans are to blame” How unreflective can you be? Stupid waste of time wrapped up in high brow word choices.
5/13/22 another bad guest… I look to these people for impartial data driven analysis… (which it often times gives) but yet again they bring on people that are so one sided and hurt their brand. If you are interested in learning anything from this podcast, make sure Nate Silver is on… otherwise 50% chance it’s trash.
A load of crap
This was the worst episode I’ve ever listened to EVER! Complete trash.
