A healthy & hilarious take on Ohio politics

Steve and Mike might be the only two dudes who can talk politics without raising my blood pressure. In fact, their occasional jokes may indeed lower it

Listen Up- they’re great

I really really enjoy this podcast. Mike and Steve really do a great job of keeping you updated, staying fair, and cracking a joke or two. I feel like my own biases have been checked multiple times. Plus it’s fun to just get a more local perspective. 10/10 would recommend
