Must listen for everyone interested in politics

Josh Kraushaar may be one of the most astute and important analysts of politics alive today. He has a strong feel for political trends, and a deep understanding of the many complex dynamics influencing both parties, as well as the entire national political landscape. I cannot recommend this podcast enough. Along with his newsletter and rich Twitter feed, Josh Kraushaar is my go-to for understanding what’s going on, and what’s going to happen next.

America needs this podcast

We all desperately need to listen to the other side a bit more. I personally enjoy hearing opinions from the center left and center right. Less emotion, and more facts. This podcast is good for enlightning oneself to political truths based on reality,Rather than political gaslighting and fear mongering that envelops our political world.

Good content, terrible audio quality

I like this pod’s content, tone, and guests. Unfortunately, it’s audio quality usually renders it unlistenable
