Editors and Opinionists opine on topics

Despite the description, there are no reporters or journalists on this podcasts.

The contributors are all editors or opinion writers. They do cover Iowa politics but not very well. You definitely know who they support because this is an opinion podcast.

5 stars for content covered
1 star for misleading description

Great political podcast.

Great podcast about Iowa politics. I highly recommend adding this to your subscription list.

No much about Iowa

I have listened for about a year but decided to stop. These folks pretty much just talk about national politics. Pretty far left, not much nuance or engaging discussion about real issues. Not much reporting either. Just opinions and not much discussion about facts that support said opinions. If you want to know about what is going on in Iowa government I would suggest a podcast called Under the Golden Dome.
