Best Politics Podcast

Great coverage of local and national politics, the people and the ideas. Seems fair to both sides, and isn’t some “talking heads” show, feels more like a college lecture of “here are the facts, you decide”. Makes sense since they’re both college professors!

“All politics is local.”

“All politics is local,” Tip O’Neil famously said. Yet coverage of local (Houston and Texas) issues with the breadth and depth we expect from NY Times or Wash Post is difficult for local newspapers or TV alone. These two commentators provide not only a focused update but also context. Facts and insight are our only tools to address the issues confronting our state. A+

Woohoooooo!!!!!!! ,

Interesting & Informative

I really enjoy this. Seems unbiased, and has great weekly happenings in the political world.
