This show should be required listening for all Americans. Knowledgeable panelists that provide a range of nuanced opinions, always based in reality. The composition of the panel leans a bit to the right, but none of them are blindly partisan. Keep up the great work, Mona!

Used to be a very good podcast. But. Has been found out and badly compromised by analysis on the Israel-Gaza conflict. Simplistic, one-sided, lacking any nuance, no Arab-Americans as guests, let alone any perspectives from Gaza itself. Worst of all, lacking in any empathy for human beings that...Read full review »

Stimulating conversations and they don’t always agree. That’s ok! It’s important to share one's own view and hear different views.Read full review »

I listen to the first five minutes of this podcast as it was recommended to me from The Bulwark. It starts off with an absolute lunatic talking about how 23% of black voters are going to vote for Trump and Biden’s campaign is not fraying, but, “collapsing”. Clearly, there is no intelligent...Read full review »

Finally! I have found a group of educated thinkers that share their opinions and knowledge in a rational, civilized and respectful way. Great quality content which tries to make sense, in the best possible way….. of today’s political circus. The listening is very enjoyable and because nobody...Read full review »

A thoughtful show that routinely dives deeper into the headlines of the day than many other pods/news sources.

I love the differing opinions. It’s a shame more Americans don’t listen . Thank you .
Maek@J via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/24/24
As a moderate Democrat, who pays close attention to politics, I find this podcast to be excellent. Mona’s regular guests are insightful and occasionally funny, and she brings in others like Tim Albertson, who are extraordinarily well informed. There was a time when I would not have been...Read full review »

I listen to quite a few excellent podcasts but this is hands-down the most substantive and often, my view point is different and it makes Me rethink if I’m disagreeing with this panel. I’m a former-liberal Republican, who left the party in 2015 in disgust about Trump. This pod always leaves me...Read full review »

Having a panel with a spectrum of thoughtful educated ideas and opinions is very much appreciated and calming in this time of turmoil.

This is probably where I experience the most right wing policy of Bulwark and it is informative even if I don’t always agree.
Maggie Goldman via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/22/24
Beg to Differ is always informative and sensible. I wish all Americans were so sensible and informed as the commentators on this podcast.
PennieGretchen via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/17/24
Great podcast. Bill, if anyone wanted to actually stop illegal immigration they would arrest the mostly WHITE MEN that hire them. It’s so ridiculous this isn’t brought up. They come here because there is a big Help Wanted sign up at the border. Why do you think Sarah Huckabee is letting CHILDREN...Read full review »

I have come to love this podcast. It is so refreshing to listen to intelligent people discuss politics and issues in a mature and respectful manner even when they “beg to differ”. We need more of this type of sober discourse in our politics today.

Great discussions, led by Mona Charen, which avoids the echo chamber by actually seeking out different viewpoints, in a balanced and respectful way. The highlights/lowlights section means that even when identifying low points of the weekly news, there’s always a balance in finding the good too.

Nicky Halley’s gaff …. Note: Donald Trump and Joe Biden are merely a few days over 550 days apart, I’m tired of hearing about Biden’s elderly age…

Mona and the team are doing exactly what they preach - have smart and nuanced conversations on important issues.

Polls are not a Vote. Just look at 2018, 2020, 2022, 2023 but only AMERICA sells a poll as a Vote
Dardyer via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/26/23
Mona and her guests are in complete denial of the ongoing genocide that is currently happening in Palestine. More than half of Americans are displeased with the Biden administration’s support of Israel as it commits mass murder and ethnic cleansing but for some reason, this podcast seems to be...Read full review »

This podcast and its cousin, the Bulwark, keep me from falling off a cliff into despondency. I sometimes disagree with all four panelists but, even more often, I learn from them.
mandojm via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/21/23
Great discussion and wow great to hear ideas being planned!
Miller Susan via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/08/23
While I often find myself disagreeing with the opinions they express, the host and guest always present their points concisely and smartly. Mega respect to Ms. Charente and the top-caliber guests she invites onto her show
Ze.Mane via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/01/23
What an excellent discussion of this week topic of masculinity/ evangelicals in our current politic landscape. I truly enjoyed it. Great podcast, incredible invites and host.
Dr. Hiram Morales via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/18/23
While I totally agree with Mona and her guests on how devastating, dangerous and depressing a second Trump administration would be… for the life of me…I can’t understand why Mona, her guests, Charlie Sykes, Bill Kristol, Steve Schmidt, Margaret Hoover, Jonah Goldberg, Governor Christie, Liz...Read full review »

Just another liberal Trump bashing Republican hating podcast

Thoughtful, rational people discussing important topics. We need this.

Imagine that! A politics podcast of thoughtful, insightful, respectful, rational, non-hyperbolic, non-polarizing conversation.

I love this podcast. This quad brings intelligent, articulate discourse every week. America would be much better off if this crew was on Fox News prime time every week.

Excellent centrist political commentary, with great regular panelists and guests.
WayOutToLunch via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/10/23
Absolutely the best political podcast out there! Civil and intelligent discussions. Nuanced and in-depth. Why can’t we have this with our politicians? I look foreard to this podcast every week. Thank you!
Saxjw via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/07/23
Wonderful podcast. Intelligent discussion and nuanced observations on important, complex issues that are impacting our lives and futures. All without anyone trying to hack your brain or push your hot buttons. Thank you 👏
Thankful Peter via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/04/23
I don’t even follow the show because it’s just about the only conservative talk show that maintains dignity and reason. I follow it mainly because, the conversations they have, is how professionals and adults should talk about serious issues. You find that from very few other podcasts.
addem_ via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/01/23
A breath of rational, civil fresh air in the suffocating fog of partisan bickering that dominates our media.
CPez87 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/01/23
Love hearing the different perspectives! Keep up the great work Bulwark folks! Can not stress this enough, this is a fantastic podcast literally everyone should listen!

A very thought provoking and well produced show. The regulars and guests are all intelligent, articulate and knowledgeable. The difference of opinions are discussed in a civilized manner and I always learn a great deal. This type of punditry could take us all on a path towards civility if it...Read full review »
