Supremes sponsors

Good show! I propose that justices should, in the style of NASCAR drivers, have their sponsor names patched about their robes.

Pandering

Main stream lobbyists who contributed to the problem now grandstand to the left of Biden while an authoritarian threatens our democracy.

More facts, less complaining and ranting please

It is boring listening to venting and complaining. I can do that over a beer with friends and there are many other podcast that already do that. Theses hosts are smart -please make interesting arguments and commentary. As it is now, it just sounds like the lefty version of the other-side with outrage and rants….I'm so tired of that.
