Sanity in an insane world...

Weekly dose of balanced politics that you can actually listen to without lapsing into fits of road rage. Finally, a team of journalists who tells you like it is without slant or spin. Always a pick-me-up in an uncertain world. Stay up to date without the hangover of depression.

Mildly Disappointing

Longtime listener (in this political world it feels like eons) and podcast addict here.

NPR and cast, I love you guys, but the tone of this show grows increasingly confusing each episode.

Do you want to be a lighthearted spin on political news? A deep dive program, probing the Democratic candidates in a challenging, at times confrontational, way?

You can’t do both well. So the show falls flat somewhere between the two—for example that giggly “can’t let it go!” with Elizabeth Warren in which she discussed American tragedy she has witnessed on the trail.

You can’t grill a politician on every apocalyptic policy aspect for an hour and then open the floor for one question about their thoughts on the new Lion King. It’s discordant.

NPR: use the bully pulpit effectively!
