Program on debates

Sorry I’m late writing this but although I love your podcast and listen every week, I was very disappointed that you mentioned neither Julian Castro nor Amy Klobuchar, two candidates I consider important and truly need to hear more from. Don’t turn into the normal media and focus only on Biden and then the more progressive candidates. I think Klobuchar in particular is strong, her message, her record, her very voice is more presidential than many you chose to talk about in that program. Thanks for reading.

I love any podcast that brings the right and left viewpoints together, but this one is especially great! The host argue with one another respectfully and I look forward to every released episode!
