Prescient podcast

Mr. Sykes,

After the horrible shooting in Buffalo and knowing that the vile shooter’s “manifesto” spoke directly about this replacement theory, this episode gave me chills. Again, that you for being ahead of the curve and sending warning signs of how toxic people like tucker carlson need to be called out and held accountable. Thank you

Excellent podcast

I’m a lifelong Democrat and political junkie and the political podcast The Bulwark with host, Charlie Sykes, is my favorite podcast. I never miss an episode and frequently listen to some episodes more than once. As an example, the May 13th episode with Tom Nichols entitled “This Isn’t Therapy, It’s Politics” is, in my opinion, so on target and should be required listening for all our Democrat politicians. The Democrats are so very poor at messaging - they should listen to Tom and Charlie and take their advice. I highly recommend this podcast.

Tom nichols.

Would you all please stop discounting CA as a state? Just because it is maj Dem. Nichols made the same argument what Trump does- that he would have won but for CA. There are more Repubs in CA than in most red states. More than 10% of US population and the biggest contributor to the GDP. About time you start giving it it’s due respect.
