20 minutes is too short

I really enjoy all the viewpoints expressed. Would like to hear deeper dives

Brooks and Capehart

Thank you ! I look forward to it every week. I wish it could cover more topics . They are so brilliant and I ‘d love to hear more from them about issues such as education costs and delivery, infrastructures, future of employment, everyday misinformation, politically motivated aggressive behavior, mental health as public health and feasible solutions projects. Am I asking too much?

Love the content, bad technical issues

When Mark Shields was on, these episodes dropped like lockwise and were very reliable. Every Friday night I could count on them. Since he left, they often miss weeks. This week’s episode was only half recorded. It’s like they changed their technical staff and are not really trying to make dependable episodes anymore.
