Love it but have qualms

I live in Berkeley. I’m a democrat but hate a lot of the left ragging on republicans. I grew up in the Central Valley with hard-working God fearing Republican Goldwater voting parents who contributed so much to their small town community. That said I’d really like to hear less about what Biden is not doing right and more of what good (if imperfectly) he IS doing. Personally I think he’s doing an incredible job. Just a suggestion. Let’s all work together for the good of the non-oligarch classes.

George Packer

Disappointing episode. Not impressed with Packer’s disdain for Joe Biden and his many talents and abilities, and that Packer is fine with taking money from public schools for charter and private schools.

Bulwark Podcast- a must listen

I recently found this podcast and after listening to just a few episodes, instantly became a fan. The refreshing perspectives with light banter from Tim makes is a very easy listen. He is also very inquisitive with guests and able to dive deep while still keeping it engaging.
