Interesting Takes

I enjoy this show most of the time! Not every topic grabs my interest but a lot do. Honestly, I kinda dislike Ross’s hot takes always though. He always seems to be on the defensive and he’s kinda rude. If I stop listening it will be because of him.

Their bias is transparent

Listened to “Is Mayor Pete the Answer” episode, it’s clear they used that title to bring in listeners only to promote Elizabeth Warren and criticize Mayor Pete. The hosts husband works for the Elizabeth Warren campaign, and mayor Pete Buttigieg is her primary competitor in Iowa currently. They encouraged possible Buttigieg supporters to look to lower tier candidates that aren’t a threat to EW. Hard to believe this is The New York Times podcast.

Warren bias is getting old

The disclaimer doesn’t help much to mask the focus on pushing Warren. Would love someone to take the side of a Pete or a moderate. Pete barely got discussion in an episode bearing his title for example and was relegated to someone old folks like.
