Prefer the news part to most of the interviews

I like the podcast, but I often skip the interview part, I think mostly because I don't always see the importance (not clear how influential each person actually is). Wish the news roundtable part was expanded a bit.

Fun and interesting show

Marisa and Scott are so sharp, clever, and able to make complex events so understandable. They have nuanced minds and personalities which allow them to converse with anyone easily and effectively. They also have lovely voices. Thank you for this show!
