Was a great podcast, now it’s a waste of time.
I’ve listened to this podcast since the beginning. So far they lost the immense talent of Micah Cohen, Nate Silver, Sarah E. Frostenson, Clare Malone, Perry Bacon Jr., and Alex Samuels. Letting Nate Silver go was perhaps their largest mistake, with him gone, is it really FiveThirtyEight? Doesn’t sound like it. It’s just a boring waste of time now. The “wonky” podcast I used to love sound like all the talking heads you see on 24/7 news channels. Just there to fill air. Galen appears to try to hold it together, but the talent has been hollowed out to where I feel those on the podcast now would be better suited elsewhere. Nathaniel Rakich is still appreciated. Basically, it’s trash now and I feel sorry for those stuck in contracts that can’t jump ship yet.

Informative, entertaining & personable with minimal "likes" and no perceptible vocal fry!! These guys are great and as someone that leans right, they didn't once make me want to throw my iPhone at the when they talked about R primary.Read full review »

Though the first episode only just came out, 538 Elections has been pseudo-existing in beta form for a while now. Always interesting, with an uncanny knack for taking topics that should be boring as all hell and making them engrossing. Can’t recommend enough for any and all political junkies.

I learned more listening to the one minute preview than watching most of the Sunday morning talk shows. 538 FTW.
