    Gerrymandering, Liberty and Justice Dinner, Hate Speech, Rural America Vote, Biden and the Church

    Gerrymandering could be the primary issue standing in the way of a centrist movement. Iowa leads off the 2020 election, all 14 Democratic candidates spoke to 13,000 Iowans last week — who stood out? We were there. The Rural American Vote is significant, the Church denies Joe Biden Communion, hate speech is on the rise — what are the answers?

    Gun Debate

    Gun Debate

    This was recorded the evening before the Santa Clarita Tragedy.

    We need to do something about the mass shootings and gun violence. But like everything, there are valid arguments on both sides. We discuss a middle ground with gun owners and non gun owners re: self-defense, hunting, background checks, red flags, magazine capacity, buy backs, open carry and more.

Best political based Podcast out there.

Finally some voices of reason mixed in with a bit of humour. You are comfort food for us political junkies.

Excellent, insightful, important

This podcast reminds us of how parties used to collaborate to accomplish great things; that difference does not have to lead to indifference, and civility is still alive. Jeff and Dave are knowledgeable about the past and current political climate, as well as the system, how it should work, and how it isn’t working. Their views surprisingly reflect our two-party system, yet somehow bring you to understand how both sides can be right (or at least reasonable). At time when shock factor seems the norm, this podcast truly brings the conversation to the center. It is well worth the time.
