Host Michael Sheehan's ability to help people communicate at the highest level was dubbed by New York Magazine as "the Sheehan effect." With breaking news happening constantly, Sheehan looks outside the 24/7 news cycle to wonder what politicians can learn from professional wrestlers. How politicians can get laughs, intentionally, with advice from renowned comedians. And how losing candidates can be turned into winning ones with insight from legendary professional sports coaches. It's politics, policy, and people through Alice’s looking glass.

Recommend it for foreigners!!

It is very good for non-native English speaker. I’m an English foreigner. But I am always interesting at politics so I tried to listen to some politics podcast. But it’s hard to understand.
And I met Politics as unusual. It is just amazing podcast I ever seen. It’s not boring and they usually trying to speak easy words that everyone(even me) can understand.
I love this podcast💜💜💜
Sorry for my poor English skill 😭😭

Awesome

Was nervous about trying a new “political” podcast, but Mr. Sheehan does a great job keeping it light and free flowing. The guests are unique, and their perspectives are different, which makes this an easy listen. This is a great chance to laugh with our current political climate, not at it. Recommended for both liberals and conservatives.
