Gender

Upon one’s race, ethnicity, and gender. More often in recent weeks, gender is being largely omitted amidst a society which at present, is being fueled by gender wars- as evidenced in Amen , A-Woman. Why is gender suddenly being omitted from discussion; this is seen evidenced within many podcasts the past few weeks - it is as if gender no longer applies.
And it should.
This does a disservice, to women.
Am shocked Judge Garland would have omitted.
..”upon one’s race, ethnicity, and gender”‘from his remarks.

Could be better

I enjoy the intro sound bytes. There are so many youse guys should use others. The content in mostly good, but irritating when you’re yukking it up, overtalking each other.
The host accents are distracting, also. Get some speech advice, guys. Overall an informative, lively, mordant discussion.
Remind me of the NPR Car Guys, Tom & Ray Migliazzi & that’s a compliment.

Hold Republicans feet to the fire

To start this is my go to Podcast. I can’t wait for a new episode to drop.
BUT you allow republicans to spout nonsense with no repercussions. I listened the McCaul episode and was very disappointed that you did not challenge him on anything especially towards the end when he rattled off trumps so called accomplishments.
