Awesome and informative podcast!
This podcast is very good! I like that the candidate really gets to answer questions fully and that the questions are good.
Great insight into presidential campaigns
This show is great for political junkies and anyone else interested in the presidential campaign -- which should be everyone in these times! Every candidate is going through New Hampshire, so I'd expect to hear from all of them as the months go by.
Very personal view of the candidates
I find this to be a very good way to get a personal view of the candidates as they continue to pepper New Hampshire with visits in the coming months. The interviews are very fair and tough questions are respectfully asked.
