The Weeds

 12 people rated this podcast
In politics, you’re often told not to get lost in the weeds. But we love the weeds! That’s where politics becomes policy – the stuff that shapes our lives. Every Tuesday and Friday, host Matthew Yglesias is joined by Vox reporters and editors, ProPublica's Dara Lind, and some of the leading minds in policy to dig into the weeds on important national issues, including healthcare, immigration, housing, and everything else that matters. Produced by Vox and the Vox Media Podcast Network.

This is a podcast about nerding out on public policy. If you're someone who looks at the world around you and feels like 'there must be a better way to do some of this stuff than this...' then The Weeds will be a pretty engaging podcast for you! They'll pick different topics and discuss them in depth, looking at how different countries or municipalities have tackled problems and digging through research papers on what sorts of policies seem to work!
This podcast is focused on political ideas, as opposed to partisan politics. If you're more interested in public policy than the horse race, this might be a good fit for you. It has inspired some good conversations for me. I recommend this one.
