POLITICO takes you behind the scenes with Washington's power players to uncover what's really driving politics and policy in the nation’s capital.
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.

Great content, odd style
Great topics and interviewees - appreciate the in-depth chat on these people/issues. Isaac’s questions are good ones, but his style is this weird banter that makes me question if he’s talking sh** to them or flirting with them. Some playful/fun chat is nice, but let the guests speak and don’t demean them!
Trumpsters LIE and this is just another outlet that doesn't push against their LIES.
Just listened to the interview with Chip Roy, “rock ribbed conservative.” Tim Alberta asked pointed questions in a respectful way that elicited straight answers from Roy. This is exactly the kind of political discourse we need more of. Great job! I’m making Off Topic one of my regular go-to podcasts.
