  • Smart, friendly and fun!

    I love getting the scoop on Texas and national politics from Brandon and Jerónimo. Their commentary is insightful and my favorite way to catch up what’s happening in the lone star state.

  • FLASH - One left and was replaced with - guess what - another liberal political science prof straight from the same echo chamber. I guess it's just toooooo much to ask for some balance and diversity of opinion. But since they're both always so correct there's no point.
