Paleoconservative thoughts

The three hosts engage in informative conversations about promoting “Main Street” conservative thoughts like the magazine. The format of the show is balanced and interesting with a discussion about the news at the beginning, an interview in the second act and the cultural discussion at the end. I have enjoyed the conversations thus far.

The biggest downside to this podcast is the sound quality. Obviously, the COVID-19 pandemic is complicating sound editing for the editors. The interview in the second episode, however, featured echoing that was distracting to the conversation. The volume of each person speaking is also uneven.
