Great work!

I really love Joe Lockhart! So glad that he has joined the show. When Steve and Elise left, I wasn’t sure I could stick with it, but so glad that I did!

One of my favorite podcasts

I love this podcast so much that I smile when I hear that intro jingle! Thanks for going the extra mile to drop some unique knowledge on political junkies like me! :)

The episode about Joe at the Moth....... i really enjoyed his sharing the personal side of working behind the scenes in politics at the national level. Thoroughly enjoyable. Even though the events were in the past, a bit of levity inserted right now is very helpful.

Also, the quote you all source at the start of this show about being entitled to your opinion but not your own facts....that is attributed to Daniel Patrick Moynihan.

Thanks for a consistently very good podcast.
