Excellent Podcast by Gallup!
This is an amazing podcast! If you want to know what American are thinking, you need to listen to this show hosted by Frank Newport. Additionally, the sound and production is excellent.
Interesting but partisaned
Gallup (I thought) was supposed to be nonpartisan polling research. But it increasingly features experts who describe issues by citing causes and justifications only from the left. Not impartial enough content.
Interesting topics, and certainly not activist in tone, but also not a full picture.
