Good content, but hard to understand the host sometimes

This pod has great content but the host pronounces his “R”’s in a really weird way so I can’t tell what he’s saying sometimes. A more intelligible host would make it a 5-star pod.

Misrepresentation of facts

If you know anything about economics, statistics, and partisan games, this podcast will keep you laughing and crying in equal turn.
