💯Excellent

Robert Scheer is a pro giving insightful interviews with top notch guests. Don’t miss his 2 part Noam Chomsky interview.

great balanced

Professor sheer is leftist but that does not at all get in his way in most cases. I like conservative shows but this one is top on my list

Consistently top notch

I look forward to Scheer Intelligence each week. Occasionally Bob cuts off his interviewee to expostulate a bit too long. 😏 Small price to pay for his choices of sheer intelligence out there, though. Scheer is a national treasure who has a big heart and a sharp mind with loads of experience behind him.
