    How Hopeful Should Democrats Be About the Midterms?

    The midterms traditionally mean disaster for the president's party. However, things may be different this year, so we ask why the electoral hopes for the Dems are so high with the economy reeling from high inflation and uncertainty about whether the country will slip into recession.

Love the podast

Roifield puts together an interesting panel every episode. I do like to contrast and compare where the US is compared to the UK on many issues.
I have really enjoyed the recent Focus on Ukraine.

Well done introducing the Ukrainian conflict

Thank you for introducing this difficult and complex matter in a way that is understandable and deep perspective.

Enjoyable Education

Roifield’s podcasts never fail to educate, inspire and get some of the stagnant parts of your brain working again. (I am not a medical professional. This is just my opinion).

The guests are engaging and the host knows how to keep complex issues digestible. I would say I enjoy them with a nice cup of Cafe con Leche, but to respect the host, I’ll have some English tea.
