I'm pretty sure I'm getting smarter listening to this Podcast, not because of the context of what they are saying, but more so the big words they use. I'm probably going to need a new dictionary here soon because I keep looking up words. They bring on every political viewpoint which is refreshing, but what they need with some of these inteviews is video. I can only imagine the clowining around that occurs behind the looking glass.

@Matt Welch, Ferris Bueller's Day Off is better than Top Gun (1st viewing) but you're right, it doesn't have rewatchability like TG does.

Update: Nearly 2 years later and it’s still one of the most amazing and relevant podcasts out there.

Smart, knowledgeable commentary

So nice that shows are coming out regularly. I look forward to this podcast all week. I don’t even agree with a lot of what is said, but they say it so well, and with so much supporting detail,
I can’t help but hang onto every word. Moynihan’s rants are priceless. Real adult entertainment, witty, funny, 100 proof insights.
