    70: Reagan's Nation: The Transition of Power

TheAdrienne ,

Brain food, uniquely interesting

Two professionals giving some fascinating analysis in the overlap between politics, psychology, and persuasive language. I only wish they released episodes more often!

Kimberly, is that you? ,

Good show with potential

I like this show and the format a lot. Great information.
My only critique is that the hosts are clearly partisan and biased, which impacts how much credibility they have. I understand breaking down partisan speeches but at times there’s an obvious narrative.
Just the facts, please :)
