Balance

Love the show & always look forward to the football analysis from the 3 amigos. When it comes to discussing politics in the US, Stanage isn’t the best to have on all the time. I actually don’t listen to those shows anymore. I’m a Waterford man living in New Hampshire for 25 years and as we’re first in the nation voters I’ve seen a lot of debate through the years. Balance it up with someone from the center/center right. I consider myself socially liberal, fiscally conservative so not really represented in either party but I can see the arguments on both sides.

I like Eamon on sports but his shallow takes on politics and current affairs can be safely ignored.

Shines a light on issue in a effective non-American-media manner

Great show - doesn’t pander to the left or the right - if you are looking to have a particular point of view upheld, look elsewhere
