Stewart Baker - Now with FOX News

Always new Stewart Baker as a conservative - But today he parked his ethics at the door to take up the Trump Illusion of the end of our three separate branches of government.

Great guests, but poor sound quality

This podcast has some great guests, but I can hardly hear anyone unless I’m in a completely quiet room. People often listen to podcasts on their commute and in the gym. Please invest in better sound quality so that we can enjoy your great content!
