Fine

Sounds like sitting next on a bunch of poli sci grad students talking past each other at a coffee shop- each trying to score points for most words per response. Lots of cross talk. On the bright side, these particular grad students aren’t so bad.

Usually 4 stars

I was disappointed in the lack of analysis of the white paper in the recent Democracy episode. Ad hominem characterization of researchers as “out of touch” academic “left” “racializing” everything “these days” was so weak, unrelated to the thesis, and unsophisticated I had to unsubscribe. Might try again one day since usually it is pretty substantive and weedy.

Riveting

Certainly not for casual listening, but great if you truly find yourself curious about any number of topics and want to listen to people test the bounds of most of the arguments/positions that are taken on whatever the subject is for that episode. An important listen for those wanting to be informed about the happenings in the political world/society going into 2020.
