"It's an antidote for the insanity happening in politics. "

"I really enjoy these guys' banter and the loose tone in general. There's just a ton of insight into the workings of government - or at least how it used to work - by the hosts having been a part of the Obama administration. I will grant that the points of view aren't the most nuanced out there, in the podcast universe. But, being a leftist, I find it hilarious when, especially Lovett, goes on a rant about the Presidents gaffs, foolish actions or downright tyrannic behavior. I would very much recommend this podcast but I would remind people to not get caught up in the bubble. "
