Thought provoking

I love this podcast as it presents different perspectives and makes me think. The breadth of topics and the curious inquires make my day. Thank you!

Very biased

Out of all of the major mainstream podcast networks, Slate is by far the most biased and this podcast is no exception. Each episode is well produced and they pick interesting topics, but this podcast is extremely biased in favor of liberals.

This podcast has supported some radical ideas such as court packing the Supreme Court now that conservatives have a majority on the court, and there have even been a couple of episodes where they've unfairly attacked moderate Democratic candidates for President, during which it was very evident that the producers of this podcast want someone who's much farther to the left to win the nomination.

Devoted listener

Excellent podcast. Mary Harris and team offer thought-provoking episodes on some of the most complex and challenging issues of the day. (Case in point: “Harvard’s Harvey Weinstein Mess”). Thank you and keep it coming!
