Very interesting and very approachable

Fantastic, detailed, and concise discussions of geopolitics that serves as an excellent complement to the GPF subscribtion material. The sound quality can be a little poor with issues like some people being much louder than others and Cole and Jacob seemingly moving back and forth towards the mic. However, the content is always fantastic!

Clownish

Do you even know that the Kings have the same record as the Pels and Blazers? You could at least give the Kings your obligatory dumping on them comment to say that they have no shot at 8, in line with all of your Kings commentary. Grow up. Do your job. Or maybe this is just a bs hobby for you?

Love the show but inconsistent episodes

I really enjoy this podcast and have been a fan since it’s inception, but I am extremely disappointed at the lack of consistent episodes. It used to be an episode every Tuesday and then all of,the sudden without any explanation for why, there were no updates for several months. That was probably a year ago but ever since that hiatus the episodes haven’t been consistent, and it looks like we’re now in the middle of another hiatus. Especially at a time right now there are plenty of topics to discuss, and was really looking forward to an episode on the U.S. withdrawing from Syria. The content is 5 stars but lack of consistent updates with no explanation really grinds my gears
