Must Listen

Jason and Jo are two top-rate journalists that contribute an immense amount of information to the political conversation and landscape in Missouri. This podcast is a great resource to an average Missouri to better understand our elected officials and the problems we face as a state. Keep up the great work!

Take them to task!

I love this show.
But can you please take some of these folks to task?? You could push for some real answers from people, for example your most recent interview with Lewis Reed. I don’t like as a listener having someone blab generalities or even worse, lie to me.
Thank you!

Excellent podcast plus one suggestion

This is easily the best Missouri politics podcast in the state, and one of the more informative podcasts I listen to in general. Jason and Jo do a great job with the interviews, and I appreciate the balanced, bipartisan perspective. My one suggestion is that the production team revised their choice of intro/exit music. The heavy drums/guitar is rough on the ears, whether in the car or through headphones. It would be great if the music matched the quality of the podcast itself.
