Too many ads
I love listening to Phil Matier and his incisive analysis of San Francisco politics. Miss him in SF Chronicle. This program is great and an adequate substitution for what’s missing in the print media.
Always Enjoy Phil!
Love the show, but wish the very end of the podcast wasn't always cut off (at least it is on iTunes).
Content good - too many commercials
Content is good but the commercials before and after are longer than actual content and it repeats same ads. Probably would listen if on ad but not 4 to 6- 30 second ads for 3 minutes of content. Fast forward
