Capehart is everything wrong with journalism.

Can’t wait to read AG Ellison’s book! Such an insightful & brilliant man. Excellent questions from you, Jonathan! I will never forget the line from the closing arguments in the Chauvin trial: George Floyd didn’t die because his heart was too big, he died because Derek Chauvin’s heart was too...Read full review »

What a great speaker. I wish we had more politicians like him!

…for Democrats who love to see black people castrated for their pleasure.

I’ve just started listening to Jonathan’s podcast and am sold, 5+ stars, big fan. I’ve only heard 2 minutes and 45 seconds of the first episode with Michael Steele in 2016 so far and am drawn to the straight talking, truth telling, engaging dialogue. Refreshing to say the least. Jonathan’s a star xo

Jonathan’s 2021 interview of Ty Seidule, the author of “Lee and Me: A Southerner’s Reckoning with the Myth of the Lost Cause”, is extraordinary. In these renewed days of book burning it is perhaps more relevant than ever. Jonathan is a very gifted interviewer who clearly stands out in a crowded...Read full review »

Jonathan is a much needed voice in media and podcasting. I so appreciate the viewpoints and nuance he brings to his many interviews and conversations. I don’t usually review podcasts but after his extraordinary interview with the fabulous Billy Porter I was moved to do so. What an amazing,...Read full review »

Wow, was she ever a racist. Talking about race during a dinner party the entire time. I’m a little hesitant to call out someone I don’t know on issues of race. You two were talking about those whom have married someone of another race and announce it. Jon, this is ‘you’ being together with a...Read full review »

In addition to your podcast, I’ve been watching your show on MSNBC (and I am not a TV news watcher). What stood out to me was the way in which you paused after every false statement, and said the words “that statement was false.” We need ALL of our professional news anchors and commentators to do...Read full review »

JC is an amazing interviewer—so real, thoughtful and considerate to his guests. He brought out Andy Kim as a true American hero !

Beautiful voice, engaging mind and guests you’ll want to hear from

Thank you so much for this podcast. It was spellbinding. I'm a 60’s activist and now age 74. My generation has been waiting on this generation to get smarter and get active because if you get smarter you'll definitely get active. People are beginning to ACTUALLY believe that BLACK LIVES...Read full review »

Outstanding. I’ve already shared this episode with anti-racist workers. Thank you both!!

I am so happy I found this podcast. It is a great mix of current events and personal interviews and helps me as an overseas listener get a balanced, interesting inside view of America. Highly recommend!

The interview with Ty Seidule was excellent, full of not widely known details about the school’s blatant historical efforts to maintain white supremacy on its campus.
TMT-DC via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/30/21
I love Jonathan’s Tv show and I love his podcast where he digs deeply.
malie.sturgis via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/27/21
This is the most consistently interesting podcast that I follow. I always listen, even when the title doesn’t grab my attention, because Jonathan Capehart’s choices of guest and topic are always worthwhile. He is a skilled interviewer. He also has a good speaking voice and none of the annoying...Read full review »

If the reason for the present white racist behavior can be explained by the manufacturing changes in America and the fact that white people don’t feel heard, what would explain the racist behavior from the inception of this country against Native Americans and enslaved African Americans? Some the...Read full review »

For starters, Jonathan lines up great guests, and with his spirited, informed, and racially astute approach to his chats, listening is always a tour de force experience.
tluzzatto via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/08/21
I just listened to Jonathan’s interview with Representative Andy Kim of New Jersey. The discussion was wide-ranging and thoughtful. Very much worth your time. Ok, now I listened to the fantastic interview with Rebecca Carroll, author of Surviving the White Gaze. I have to take this opportunity...Read full review »

This interview with Heather McGhee is by far the most intelligent, informative, and enlightening interview of many brilliant ones I have listened to.
irenomis via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/06/21
Mr Capehart is a great interviewer. I think he knows his subject, pays attention, and listens to his guests when they talk.
Juniperfect via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/29/21
Loved this interview! I read his memoir and am reading The Devil You Know right now. His manifesto makes so much sense and he presents it so well. I am ready to support his campaign when he runs for office! Jonathan, I also enjoy seeing you on your new gig with PBS Newshour.

Thank you for a great conversation. My copy arrived last week and I am learning and enjoying. I would live to hear more from Professors Blain and Kendi. Than you!
Jonathan1959 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/16/21
The discussion on February 10, 2021 on polarization was one of the most insightful and helpful discussions I’ve heard. The author’s research and reflections reveal how we, as individuals and through the body politic, can better reach out to people who feel left behind while also instilling a...Read full review »

Hearing this made me cry and laugh and everything inbetween! I seriously cannot understand how in the world South Carolinians missed the chance to have this brilliant man be their Senator.
skytreelake via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/14/21
JC’s interview style is appealing and brings out the best in his guests. Every interview is compelling. I’ve leaned so much and met so many great Americans through listening. He’s my favorite podcast today.

Enjoyed your conversation with Simone Sanders. Will be watching her as she navigates her new position with Kamala Harris. Thank you.
news-consumer via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/08/20
One of my favorite podcasts for bringing brilliant political thinkers into my world. If you’re listening to the rest of the standard political/social podcasts, then you need to add Cape Up to up your polisci game.
dr.p4p3 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/10/20
Always thoughtful, smart, and kind. Capehart engages in real conversations that capture a big-picture political moment and an intimate, personal connection with guest, at the same time. He has a real gift as an interviewer, chooses great guests, and is just a pleasure to hang out with. I’m...Read full review »

Mr. Capehart, I always enjoyed watching and listening to you whenever you were on A.M Joy on the weekends. I especially enjoyed whenever you sat in for her. You’re brilliant. You teach me every time you speak. I especially enjoyed you podcast with Senator Chris Coons. Your knowledge base and...Read full review »

Deeply inspired and grateful to have re-discovered hope for the survival of democracy.

The most recent podcast (Oct. 2020) with Chris Coones gave me hope and reminded me of what a hard job we have ahead of us.

The insights shared by Rev Al are hugely helpful. Very glad you talked about the need to support our LGBTQ brothers and sisters. Wonderful, honest conversation. Thank you, Gentlemen!

I just finished reading White Fragility with another white friend and came across The Atlantic piece by John McWhorter. Any chance you might interview him to hear more about his criticisms of this book? Fans in Davis, CA
