I love the Bruenigs

This is my favorite podcast. Perfectly struck balance between irony and sincerity, the high- and low- brow, soothing and salty, sacred and profane. I could think of no better way to present left politics in a more appealing package. Praise be to The ‘Tism.

Great

These guys are both so smart and funny. I can’t believe they are younger than me (and I consider myself young)—they are already so knowledgeable and accomplished; can’t wait to see where they go. Two great differing left wing perspectives on everything from policy proposals to TV and sports. The show is a cute and fun look “behind the scenes” if you’re a follower on Twitter (I recommend) or of their published work. I wish I had the scratch to follow them on Patreon, because my one complaint is they do make sure this free podcast feed is second tier—the episodes come out well after they’re recorded and many don’t come out at all. This will be the first podcast I pay for as soon as I can justify paying for a podcast.
