get rid of the politics

no one in the intelligence community cares about “political landscape.” give us the facts about the hard targets... get over the fact that clinton lost and you lost money from supporting her campaign.

Grain of salt

Edit- Having Senator Bennett on was really discouraging and below the host. I love this podcast but I feel so discouraged that a leader in the intelligence community would stoop to this level. I can no longer give 5-stars I’m good faith.

Being said, Michael is a serviceable host, and a lot of the time he brings up thought provoking points. My only wish is that he wouldn’t be so politically one-sided. I’m a converted conservative, myself so I tend to get frustrated hearing a brilliant man straw-man my side of the aisle. I’m still rating the podcast five-stars because I’ve been listening too long not to—but there has been a notable regression imo.
