Sane conversation in a world gone mad

Matt Lewis is essential listening if you want to go beyond the party lines. Respectful discussion from all points of view, with a great mix of content: current topics along with off-the-beaten path interviews. I’ve been introduced to so many great books and people through this podcast. Check it out!

Matt Lewis is a treasure

It was a privilege speaking with Matt. He’s brilliant and warm — a perfect and winning combination for a host. Something about him draws out the story from his guest seamlessly.

I highly recommend his podcast to anyone interested in edifying and scintillating conversation!

Some things could make this podcast a bit better

One thing that would vastly improve this podcast is if it had a different host. Matt K. Miller is so self-important and self-absorbed, and devoid a any touch of reflective humility, he has the personality of an unflushed toliet. He needs to listen to other political podcasters who do this job with some authentic humility and grace: Charlie Sykes, or Josh Barrow (“Left, Right, and Center”).
