Informative and Important

I’ve always loved press play but I used to only listen to it in the car whenever it was on. I’ve since started to seek it out with the gubernatorial interviews, which I find so helpful. I hope they’ll do more (senate and congressional). I love that they’re helping me be an informed voter!

Keep up with LA and the nation

Used to live in LA and our daughter lives there now. This is a great podcast for keeping up with the city. Also many topics of national interest. Madeleine Brand is an exceptional interviewer

Great show topics but Madeline falls short

I really appreciate the topics Madeline brings to her show. The show has great guests & very insightful stories. However Madeline falls short for me. I’m not fully on board with her interview style, I feel at times she belittles her guests. I personally prefer when Barbara Bogaev guest hosts. I feel she treats the guests with respect & has a very different & kind approach to interviewing guests.
