    Episode 123: Deep dive on Georgia runoffs, Trump 2024? AOC to the Senate WITHOUT taking Chuck's seat?

    Welcome! You've been transported to vacation! Want me to get you drink from the pool bar?


    Ossoff vs. Perdue and Warnock vs. Loeffler have put out advertisements and it's VERY clear how they are running. We dissect exactly how the Democrats hope to do what Biden just did and how the GOP is trying to prevent it.


    Trump is talking about running in 2024 before he has conceded in 2020. Welcome news for MAGA Nation, less than stellar news for the GOP hopefuls behind him.


    J.D. Durkin of Cheddar joins us to talk about the Stop The Steal / Biden Celebration events in Philly, the media's newest fascination Marjorie Taylor Greene and congressional gossip including how AOC might make it to the senate WITHOUT ripping the party in half by primarying Chuck Schumer.

The best podcast about the horse race of politics.

Strategy, humor, history, and balance. Listen to this and “My History Can Beat Up Your Politics” and stay sane.

Awesome podcast covering politics from a less partisan angle!

Justin Robert Young is not only an entertaining host, but gives good political insight and a mostly non-partisan point of view. He has a wide variety of mainly political guests on a plethora of topics. Justin’s aims to keep the audience engaged with his delivery and bringing points of view from both sides of the political spectrum. He also has a great podcast series about the 1960 presidential election!
