Excellent but…

I haven’t had broadcast TV for 40 years so didn’t know of Mr Todd til this podcast so I thought it was just my annoyance w his perpetual interruption of guests. After reading other reviews, I see I’m not alone. I guess this tendency is on account of the nature of his television show. If I’m being charitable, it is bc of his enthusiasm and getting caught up in the discussion.

The discussion topics are thoughtful and timely. The guests he is able to obtain impressive. All in all v engrossing even when they get into the political weeds. Just subtracted one star for the interruption habit.
Also appreciate the isolation of sport discussions to the end of episode since it totally doesn’t interest me.

Great since the Hotline

Chuck Todd has been a great source of political information, mostly presented clearly separate from any opinions offered.

Getting back to his roots with interesting conversations with interesting insiders. Stan Greenberg is always rad. Brothers who wrote lobby book ep good too. Steve Brill awesome. Ballmer episode was still junk tho lol
