Spends too much time punching left

This podcast is so much better without Lovett. Just sayin'

It was a great podcast as usual. Will you address the possibility of state legislatures overriding voters and sending competing electors to vote on the president with a 6 to 3 majority for trump in the supreme court.

You won't find a more witful leftist podcast anywhere and I feel very invigorated beating the Trump piñata together with you a couple of times a week. But... what little liberal self-reflection there was has completely evaporated with the election still months away and I'm hearing the same blind adoration of the demigods of the Democratic Party that I heard leading up to 2016. Liberal arrogance helped put the orange monster in The White House - and may help keeping him there.

A witty and smart analysis of the weeks political news and events. Obviously a liberal bias, but that doesn't prevent the hosts from dissecting all things Democratic (capital D). The hosts former jobs working within campaigns and for the Obama administration gives them a unique perspective and an endless supply of inside baseball stories. Highly recommended to stay sane and learn something.

Junk, they are super out of touch, they represent everything wrong with the corporate owned Democratic party today. If I could give them negative stars I would

WiNoJoE sez: your 7/27/2020 interview with Mehdi Hasan was just awesome guys, good enough to earn you a 5-star review! Keep up the good work PSA folks, our country is fighting for its very soul.

Great interviews! Part of my daily routine

You gave great stats and info on today's podcast. The problem is that you seldom give us the links to find atricles. "Pod Save the People" usually puts a great list of such links in the show notes. Show us the receipts, please! I want to be able to show others in order to influence folks who will not listen to the pod! Love the podcast - keep telling us what we can do to push our government officials to do better. Thank you for doing this work!

This podcast is not very good. It's very male dominated, and they don't seem to understand what normal American lives are like. It's very hard to listen to and not get angry about how out of touch these people are. I would skip it!

Already the best podcast in town. They are coming for you, Donnie!

Great podcast. They don't go quite as left as I do but their spin on the issues are still pretty good and extremely entertaining

This is a great pod. I lean center right and am an independent. This is a great dose of head on straight left views to keep me informed on both sides. Also it's fucking hilarious and all around accurate.

Very informative

Very good analysis and acoustics. I liked the very first episode that I happened to listen today.

KJW May 12 2020
Great episode, amusing hosts, but disappointing that they know about crappy reality TV non sense. Fast forward past that.

Fuck Trump

Loved this episode, very in depth discussion on the Joe Biden sexual assault allegation and potential VP picks.

Enlightening and intelligent analysis. A must-listen.

Great (left-leaning) political rundowns twice a week. I don't find all of the interviews compelling -- but they're easy enough to skip when not interested.
