Wow!

A political discussion where both sides aren’t yelling and screaming. I love it. Everyone engages in civil discourse in a respectful and informative manner. Both sides bring valid points. Kudos for keeping it real…

Smart, informative and entertaining

I learn so much from this engaging and intelligent podcast. Keep up the great work!

Not bad but could be better…

Clearly trying to offer counter political perspectives to drive engaging conversation… but unfortunately it’s still pushing an establishment perspective overall which is disappointing.
