Makes you think

I find this podcast educational, irritating, thought-provoking, sometimes too politically correct, and sometimes distinctly politically incorrect. It is able to avoid most of the knee jerk liberalism that plagues California politics.

As a listener who grows more conservative by the day, I recommend it even though it most definitely can in no way be considered to tilt in a conservative direction.
