Refreshing - not a usual word for politics

I know Martine and Elahe are great from Post Reports so it’s been fun to hear them a little looser. They seem to actually get along with Aaron who somehow makes politics palatable. He and the other political reporters care and know their stuff and they’re not trying to out talk each other. I like hearing Josh and Colby and others I read. I’ve learned a lot and will keep listening. The panda diss may have been too far though! Thanks for adding some fun to the mix.
