Like listening to two old ladies whine and complain

Like listening to two old ladies whine and complain, and I mean no disrespect to old ladies.

The partisanship is getting old.

The show is great if you want to hear about stuff the news doesn’t normally cover, but the left leaning slant that comes out is annoying given the fact CFR claims it is a non-partisan organization. I have listened for a long time and it has gotten worse over time. At the beginning, the hosts at least gave lip service to other opinions. Now if anything is presented on the other side it is a straw man argument, if any justification is given at all. If they just came out as left leaning, they would get a better rating. I listen to Pod Save America all the time and I have no issues with them because they are honest about where they stand.
