  • I love this podcast

    I really appreciate being able to listen to articulate, reasonable people discussing current events and politics POLITELY. I get to hear several different viewpoints (conservative, liberal and moderate) without a heated tone or nasty verbiage. I highly recommend this podcast if you want to hear what the “other side” thinks and feels out America today.

  • Dump hot/cold

    Podcast is currently mid. Dump the hot/cold section and just prolong the more substantive discussion. Also, it’s okay if y’all disagree a bit more vigorously…that’s the whole point of the podcast
