Would give it 5 stars, but...

Fascinating (and scary) behind-the scenes insight into the corrupt and broken US political system from insiders who know it well. I'd give it 5 stars, but I have to hold one back. Dan Pfeiffer is maybe the most knowledgable of the hosts about the inner workings and strategies, but he's very difficult and frustrating to listen to...mainly because you literally can't hear half of what he says. He does something voice coaches would call "swallowing his words". He speaks very quickly (intelligence at work), which is fine, but at the end of his sentences, he stops breathing, and so what you end up hearing is basically consonants, but it's often difficult to make out the words. If he would get some help from a voice coach to speak his words instead of just breathing the end of his sentences, listeners wouldn't have to rewind the show, and mess with the volume as much, and we'd be able to benefit from Pfeiffer's insight.
