It's Politics, but Fun

I always learn something when I listen to this podcast! Josh and Ian are so fun to listen to, and their topics are deep and engaging. If you're looking for a podcast that will expand your horizons and make you think about your own opinions, this is the one!

A Necessary Listen

The title of the podcast may suggest crap, but it’s engaging, entertaining and genuinely informative. Even in disagreement, I found myself listening and respecting the opinions of both hosts. They share a passion no matter the topics being discussed. This is a perfect alternative to other more self serious or antagonistic shows. Give them a listen and a subscribe!
