  • One more bright clever guy

    Bright guy, writes well, we share a common ideology,If you support the right you’ll never listen to a second episode. Are used to really enjoy Mike but it’s time to move past poking fun at deplorable‘s it’s not productive.Getting behind a candidate knocking on doors making phone calls attending focus a groupis much more productive.

  • Thorough and Thoughtful

    Entertaining, thoughtful analysis into news of the day, including topics many of us aren’t paying attention to. Mike isn’t afraid to contradict liberal orthodoxy while remaining true to American Classical Liberal traditions. How he reads so much, listens to so many podcasts, watches so much sports and news and legal proceedings, and also prepares a daily show complete with interviews, is beyond me.
