Interesting and entertaining

I’ve only listened to one episode and I really enjoyed it. Reminds me of “The West Wing”: educational and entertaining political commentary. This is why I like politics more than professional sports- in this game, there are real winners and losers.

Waste of time

100 percent biased. These guys don’t even try to understand conservative views. They absolutely hate 50 percent of the country. They consider anyone on the right as idiots and constantly demean them. They also use way to may f bombs to sound competent. This show is all about liberal complaining.

Podcast right?

So boring.Even when I am interested in the subject matter. Do you forget that there is an audience? Are you unhappy with what you’re doing?
