Royal?

The royals are racists so are instantly beloved to American racists. Birds of a feather.

Really wanted to like this but...peanut gallery guy on steroids

I really wanted to like this podcast, after years of being inside the DC beast, the military & embassies. I share a lot of similar viewpoints in general but, oh f'ng Christ the 'oh but'. Jared comes across as the photo negative version of the crazed uncle cornering you at Xmas babbling on about consipracies. He's a smart guy but not as smart as he thinks & often he loses any trace of common-sense. For some reason he loves engaging in friendly-fire, and anything will set him off against those who otherwise would be fellow travelers. There's a real aspect of puritanism in his emotional screeds. It's s if he really doesn't care about speakig to adults but to sulking English majors. He comes across as exactly what he is; an academic from a mid-tier school who's without any foreign policy, political or economics experience. How he gets any tread on the NYTimes, Salon, etc is a function of how thinly spread the pool of serious deep-thinkers is out there these days. He appeals to the barista going to grade school at night in some mid-sized urban university types. Pity.

Solid content overall.

One of the best political podcasts around. Aside from the random and loud keyboard typing that seems to happen in … checks notes … every episode.
