But one of the greatest divides in American politics is between the minority of voters who follow politics closely and the vast majority who don’t.

Horse Heaven PDX ,

Finally!!

Loved hearing from actual voters with skin in the game and young activists with new ideas. Ds party severely damaging. Like they r happy w 2nd place paychecks and don’t worry about housing healthcare education and crap jobs wages. Here are great people FIGHTING FOR citizens. More please. Give these people power in D party. Fix media and messaging too. Meet people where they are.

Interesting perspectives and slick production

Love this show, and this is coming from someone in the middle of the political spectrum. It leans left like all of crooked media pods but this show is just so well done. Jon is at his absolute best here! He is able to be creative and really think out loud in response to these undecided voters which makes for a super entertaining listen.
