Haha can't sleep ,

Jake needs a better mic

Listen every day. Appreciate the information. Jake’s sound is inconsistent and distracting. Maybe find out what Anna is doing and adopt her practice. Thank you for your work.

Faux Objective Fair Sound Quality

About three months in on the podcast. Didn’t get a partisan vibe- maybe a shade left, but not off putting.

What is off putting are the political ads and Jake’s level of distraction.
The show is only 10 minutes long. Why can’t he speak directly into the mic for the duration?

It’s like he’s being distracted by a cat in his apartment.

Is Jack shocked at the House’s schedule… always YES

Let me guess, Jack is predicting a government shutdown. — evergreen statement
