Great podcast

I’ve been listening to this for a while now, and almost every episode is very enlightening. Thank you, Dr. Church (and you normally delightful guests).

Great education in political theory

As an undergraduate at UW-Madison in the early 1990s Political Theory with Professor Charles Anderson was my favorite class. These discussions continue my education in this domain.

Need more niche podcasts like this

Please update your recording technology as quickly as possible, but I do understand the limitations faced by a young podcast. That being said, this is my favorite new podcast. I am a recent graduate with a bachelors degree in political science and this podcast is a great way for me to continue to explore the discipline and to learn about what people are studying in the field. I really appreciate that you have put this together, and I really enjoy the interview format.
