Progressive politics

The commentators and the topics covered offer a progressive slant to American and British politics. You don't have to be deep into the weeds of US politics to appreciate the knowledge, passion and warmth of the commentators.

In a world of Trump this is an antidote to the politics of the ignorant.

Would be better if there wasn’t so much interrupting and talking over each other

It’s ok but it is very frustrating to listen when there are constant interruptions from the panelists and talking over each other. Especially Emma - could you please be quiet and let the other person finish their point?! This alone has made me unsubscribe from the podcast
The episodes with just one guest are infinitely better than the ones with the full panel.

Great Show

This podcast is ecellent. It is thoughtful, and well produced. I enjoy seeing events though a European perspective. For me, it is like watching BBC News in America, great to see how events are presented and interpreted from another perspective, and to see parralles and differences 'across the pond'.
