Dump David Plotz

This could be a great podcast if you dump David Plotz. The reason I listen is to hear Emily Bazelon's and John Dickerson's well reasoned views.

Volume control

4 stars for content, 0 stars for smoke alarm ear pain from 1 of the 3 voices. Volume down, can’t hear 2 voices, volume back up, SHREEEEEEEEEK. I give up.

Why a complete census is important

Hey guys, big fan here, listen weekly, all the good stuff. Forgive me if I missed it, but an important point that I think you guys missed when talking about the Census count is that Census data is used and relied upon not only by gov agencies to calculate grants and subsidies, but also non profit organizations, law firms, public advocacy groups requesting gov funding or challenging policy. For ex, environmental justice groups, labor groups, and civil rights groups (esp housing!!!) use population data to extrapolate stats that support their requests/cases. If you have skewed or inaccurate data, you have skewed results. Wish you guys went over this more in your piece.
