Balance

By far my favorite politics show, and grateful am able to listen to podcast when I miss live show. One constructive criticism- check sound balance between all speakers? We can hear ever breath of Bill, while soft spoken guests have me turning up and down the volume.

How the Mighty Have Fallen

4 years ago, I’d have given this show 5 stars without hesitation, but since then I’ve watched Bill Nigut go from being the last truly objective moderator in the media to just another “Orange-Man-Bad”-parroting talking head. Bill frames all of the topics in the same subtly partisan way NPR does, doing so in such a way that liberals can pat themselves on the back for listening to “objective” news, while even a centrist such as myself can hear the bias from a mile away. The discussions around Georgia’s heartbeat bill were the point where Nigut’s bias became so flagrant that I cancelled my monthly donation to the station. They are still generally respectful towards their token conservative guest; however, especially on the abortion issue, you could hear the masked disdain from the host if you have half a brain. I still listen, as the show still does better than anyone else in covering state and local politics, but every time I do, I am reminded of how far the mighty have fallen. I am so disappointed that such a respectful panel discussion show has lowered itself to being the civilized version of a CNN or Fox News panel discussion.

Informative Source for Georgians

This is one place where you can get true discussion and analysis from both sides of the political spectrum. The show does have occasional hyper-partisan guests, but Bill Nigut mostly keeps them in check (though he is more quick to recognize the hyper Republican partisanship).

Regular guest, Greg Bluestein, is a true political journalist. In years of reading and listening to him, I honestly have no idea what his political leanings are. We need more journalists like him in this era of opinion-based reporting.
