This is the place where Utah politics tastes good. Where the stories are covered in fry sauce and you can boost your civic IQ without all the campaigning, cajoling and cross-talk. This is politics, the Utah way.

    Turns out, Utah just isn’t that into MAGA candidates

    Turns out, Utah just isn’t that into MAGA candidates

    What do the candidates who won in the Utah primary show us about the state of Utah’s Republican Party? Especially as we look to young people and the future?

    Why politics give Gen Z the ick

    Why politics give Gen Z the ick

    Utah is the youngest state in the union but you wouldn't know that by looking at who's voting. It's primary season and we wanted to why the youth seem disengaged.

Straightforward, succinct, digestible, and a little fun

Straightforward, succinct, digestible, and a little fun, too. Appreciate these bite-sized looks into current Utah conditions and issues.

Useful info. Annoying sound effects

This remains a decent way to keep abreast of Utah’s frantic legislative session. It has some good interviews and is very even handed

I don’t know what happened this year, but the inclusion of goofy sound effects throughout disrupts the tone and objectively offends the ear. They are too loud and add nothing to the otherwise perfectly straight laced reporting.

Either make it a straightforward reporting show or make it a lively commentary with personality and silliness. I could enjoy either. As it is, I have skipped whole episodes because I couldn’t endure the stupid noises punctuating every third sentence

Funnest politics podcast in the West!

I LOVE listening to Saige and Sean. They make Utah politics accessible, and (believe it or not) fun. The information is digestible and that’s a big plus. #LetSaigeSing
