The best podcast out there

I've been listening to Next Left since it began, and I depend on it weekly for a fresh dose of politcal coherence, optimism, and strength in our dissolute, chaotic, and infuriating times. John Nichols is a skilled interviewer—deft, sharp, and humble—and the politicians who join him are remarkable. The production by Sophia Steinert-Evoy is crisp and natural. This podcast is so much more real (and so much more informative in being so) than most political pods; I could not recommend it highly enough.
