Outstanding reporting. Highly recommended.

good stuff

I enjoy the non inflammatory political info in this show. I have let go of the news sources that leave me feeling angry. This is a show I look forward to hearing. Thank you wonderful nerds 💐

Lacks historical context

The analysis is reasonable, but rarely resulting in an “ah-ha” moment. Lack of diversity in age does adversely impact the podcast. All of the podcasters should listen to either Mark Shields, David Brooks, or David Gergen to get more historical context. For example bringing up impeachment as an issue. The election eliminates the relevance of impeachment and it becomes a non-issue. Democrats and Pelosi are only using impeachment hearings to put dents in Trump’s armor. Real impeachment voting will never occur this close to an election.
