  • Always a Unique and Insightful View of Political Strategy

    I listen to a lot of political podcasts and read many opinion pieces. Regardless, each time I listen to the Strategists, they come up with insightful views that identify what’s really driving political decisions and events around us. Highly recommended!

  • The Strategists

    Why are there only 5 stars on this thing? These guys just keep getting better and better. One quibble. On their Apple podcast page, they’re rated as “clean,” but it’s hard to tell since this is a podcast and you can’t see them.
