Love Keendawg’s Insights

A former Hill staffer, Keendawg does a great job translating what’s happening in politics in a fun, easy to access manner. He’s hilarious, and he has great banter with his guests!

Good stuff

The political gambler’s podcast. Good insights. Keendawg is genuinely funny and Pratik is a ball of energy. Seriously, try to contain this guy.

Meh

The hosts are annoying and unfocused, they seem to often not research their topics before the show. That said there are only a handful of predict it podcasts and they could do worse, and at least they make an effort to identify good bets unlike something like the political trade which often brings in partisan actors to give their pitch rather than actual advice, maybe in a few years star spangled Gamblers will reach the quality of the political trade or the voting odds podcast.
