Very Informative & Fun

I love checking in with this podcast on my commute. It’s really informative, balanced, and committed to diversity. 💯

“Both sides” at the expense of genuine analysis

By Espnfsbysdth - Jan 18 2019
Read more

I really do want to like this show. I have been a listener since mid 2016, but they are doing a disservice to their listeners. There is an active refusal by the hosts to ever state a fact portraying republicans in a negative light without also saying something negative about democrats. It is the ignorance of a group of people who are clearly unaffected by politics and see it more as a hobby to be laughed about than something serious. Sometimes there truly is a right and a wrong but you won’t learn about it here. If you want to hear a narrative about American politics being a fun game that doesn’t effect real people then this is your pod. If you want hear something that actually makes you more informed afterward then I encourage you to look elsewhere.
