    Bonus: The Senators at the center of the 50-50 split

    “If we miss this opportunity, God help us.” Joe Manchin and Lisa Murkowski. Two moderate senators smack in the middle — and on either side — of a split 50-50 Senate. On our first episode of Playbook Deep Dive, the two friends open up in a rare interview with POLITICO’s Burgess Everett. They get personal: about reconciliation, frustration over the Senate’s hurdles — even why Murkowski hogs the best fishing holes. And Manchin reveals a major endorsement, heard first on this show.

This podcast used to be better

The immediate former host did a better job with this podcast. Back then, the podcast covered economy policy and economic metrics. Today, the current host has an irrational hatred of Baby Boomers and spends all his time talking about how great Gen X is. Millennials don’t care.

Poor changes

Changing this to a short form podcast that doesn’t delve into issues with important facts and stakeholders removes every factor that made this podcast stand apart.
