Like Prairie Home Companion (if it was good)
RHC is a delightful podcast about Iowan politics and current events, subjects that would normally make me tune out but Justin and crew are engaging and hilarious. It feels good to hear a sorely-needed progressive lens of the goings-on in the state of Iowa. Plus any c*ck pun podcast name is good in my book.
Iowa Must Listen
If you live in Iowa you should listen to this. It is funny and good politcal analysis. If you're not in Iowa it can be entertaining to hear about our hot mess lives.
Funny and enlightening
Funny as hell and genuinely good political analysis in there too.
