Stay tuned

Love how no one is yelling, yet pertinent information is expressed and it benefits the listener. The only criticism I have, and this may be just a thing with me, but Preet is often interrupting a guest mid thought to get in a question that has popped into his head. Write it down, Preet, let the guest finish his/her sentence, then ask the question. All in all though, one of the best podcasts about current political issues.

rico d Nuevo México ,

Preet Bharara is superb !

he is a fantastically well informed interviewer, courteous to a fault and leaves plenty of space for the interviewee to describe their thoughts - He has a sterling reputation as an attorney, but having heard several of his podcasts it may be that this format is his true calling - Subscribe to this podcast, you won’t be disappointed !
