Chris and Mike arguing is very amusing!

I listen to this show for entertainment even though normally I can’t stand politics.

Perfect combination of the some what informed vs the well informed. If you watch the news and listen to all the sound bites your left with more questions than answers.
Mike brings the questions and his co-host Frates brings the well informed answers.

How can I recommend

As TMOS has notoriously been a consistent podcast I cannot say the same about this one. No notice for shows that are canceled on social media and thus I could not recommend to a friend as I would look like a fool. I like the podcast when it decides to do one. Kind of a big day to hit the snooze boys.
