One of the best political broadcasts out there

I love this podcast. Yascha is the kind of interviewer/person who makes me really, REALLY want to get involved in today’s political conversations, which are largely without forethought and almost wholly without resolution. The kinds of questions he asks are the kinds I’ve been practically screaming since the election of Trump, and he’s not afraid to be on either side of the microscope in his quest for answers.
Excellent, excellent work.

An Essential Voice and Podcast

Yascha's clever and insightful questions to an amazing set of guests shine little shafts of light into the darker corners of todays democracy. Like a doctor taking an ill patient's history the show takes us on an investigative journey into the the political malaise we all feel.
The Podcast has helped me see that the past definitions of left and right, Greater government vs greater individualism -- Democratic vs Republican in the US, is instead an argument between aknowledged complexity and simple action. Statistical analysis vs clear anecdotal example.
So getting back to the medical analogy -- people are rebelling against the complicated FDA approved drug system with all their disclosed side effects and instesd opting for holistic natural remedies that worked foer someone. In the case of medicine they are generally saved by their Doctor when they get sick enough. In the case of Trump, Brexit and Bibi Neteyahu they are still putting their faith in strong simple messages over a more murky path in a better direction.

Thanks for the podcast -- William
