Rational, Fact-Based Discussions Led By a Great Guy

As an avid listener to many podcasts, I find Matt Lewis and the News to be my favorite.

Matt is a great interviewer who always arrives at each episode educated on the subject, no matter how obtuse or difficult. And given the breadth of subjects he covers from politics, to history, to theory, that is no small task.

He also practices the disappearing art of civility. While he may disagree on issues with a guest, he never speaks over the guest or ridicules the guest for the difference of opinion. Rather, he fosters a discussion of the difference itself, allowing himself, the guest, and the audience to understand the “why” on so many political positions. This approach is how democracy survives.

More good, thoughtful, and intelligent people like Matt are needed. Highly recommend this podcast.

The Bomb

I really really like Matt Lewis b/c he's super smart and fair with his examination then explanation of current politcal events. I'm a Nurse Pracitioner and politcs is just a hobby. So having a voice like his is vital for people like me. Also he followed me on Twitter which made my year!!! MY YEAR!!!
