The young girl cohost ruins it

I get that she is supposed to represent a non-expert curious mind and offer layman questions and summarization but too often she only adds smug affirmations or just bad jokes that break the momentum of what Bliss is talking about. This cohost role could actually add to the show but with proper tact. Please find someone new.

Civics Ed at its best

This podcast was more educational and informative than much of the formal education I’ve received about politics and government. Excellent work, keep them coming. The only suggestion would be to center the “voter”, “the people”, or “America”... there is a tendency to assume who the voter is and what they stand for by a simple label, ie Democrat, Republican, and Independent. When discussing an issue it may be helpful to understand and contextualize the voting block around that issue, to as much as possible, perhaps with previous polling or survey data. I any case, great work and look forward to hearing more.

Fantastic

It’s refreshing to hear an honest discussion about politics in Illinois. Green and Biss play off of each other so well. It is the podcast we need, but not the one we deserve.
