Great, informative podcast for MS politics

I enjoy this podcast each week. It’s great for anyone who keeps up with politics and wants a deeper dive with interviews and details but also is a good way to get an overview of the hot topics and major political events in the state as well.

Excellent reporting

Thanks for this podcast. And thanks, Adam and Bobby, for exploring important issues without pushing an agenda. Wish you would announce subjects in advance so we could suggest questions.
