Nothing else like it.

Focuses on the high-pressure PR side of politics. I haven't found another podcast quite like it.

Great political insight

I always look forward to listening to Polioptics. They always have great guests and insightful information about the optics of the changing American political landscape. The hosts are smart and seasoned political operatives and "advance guys" with a unique perspective which any political junkie will enjoy.
