Great Insight

This is a great opportunity to learn some wonderful insights about some of Ohio’s political figures. Their interviews are fair and balanced, diving into the history and future goals of our office holders. I look forward to their podcast every week. If it weren’t for Claire Malone of 538 giving a shoutout to this podcast, I might not have found it so quickly. I’d recommend this to all who are interested in Ohio politics!

Very informative

All the episodes include balanced questioning. Pleased to see the wide variety of subjects interviewed, including nearly all gubernatorial candidates. Everyone has been interesting to listen to, politics aside, from Jerry Austin to Bill Seitz. At first the audio was challenging, with Seth, Mary, & Andrew being difficult to hear. But it looks like that’s been worked out. I look forward to this podcast every weekend.

Content good, audio bad

Good content, but so far the audio quality is terrible. The interview with Clare Malone was really good but I could barely hear the hosts (especially Mary). Once that gets resolved, this will be five stars for sure.
