Awesome!

This is the only podcast that I plan on listening to before it comes out.

Excellent on many fronts

I listen to a LOT of political podcasts. While PWR covers current issues, as they all do, the guests and the directions the conversations take are unique. They flesh out less obvious areas of the issues -- that are very important! --in a succinct and understandable way. My own knowledge base is incredibly enhanced.
