I’m here for the hot takes. The conversations between Krystal and Kyle are compelling in their own right - they are such a dynamic duo! Then with their amazing guests you enter into a new realm of thought-provoking conversation. Really enjoy the show and highly recommend listening and subscribing!

You two lame brains thought it’s cool to ghost Jimmy Dore then have Cenks nephew on? Disingenuous, unprofessional, lying by omission, taking the side of russigating smear merchant, katzenberg cash taking slime balls, pathetic. I thought you were better than that.

I was so hopeful and supportive of your show. I was immediately subscribed and immediately a paying member. Not because I believed you needed my measly $5 a month but because I wanted so much to support you in your success. I have come to a fork in the road choosing between honesty and loyalty...Read full review »

Makes no sense to act like you are progressive and anti-establishment and then treat Jimmy Dore this way. Honestly can’t look at you now and not think you’re just another flavor of grifter.

This show would be 10x better if Kyle could stop being pretentiously patronizing for 5 seconds. Nearly every episode I want to tell him to shut up and stop talking over Krystal! Other than him playing the bombastic foil to Krystal’s cool, the show is a good listen for those who just want exposure...Read full review »

Mcgowan podcast. When discussing the terrible situation of CEO income vs workers, Kyle flippantly said to send them to gulags or Pal Pot’s death camps. He needs to control his righteous frustration. Such comments are counter productive to fixing the issue. Stick to policy, strategy, and...Read full review »

Some of the guests have been great so far, but by and large Krystal and Kyle alone have been much better than the interviews.

Generally a good show up until the Vaush interview. The way they described the β€œforce the vote” situation showed that both Krystal and Kyle are in the pocket of the corporate power structure. They pretend to be on the left, but when you finally get to taking action, they both fall short. Very...Read full review »

I listen to this every week and subscribe on substack. Excellent to get more in depth discussions around progressive issues. Kyle needs to get better at interviewing. He tends to ask leading questions that tell the guest how to answer which is a bit aggravating. Krystal really makes the show....Read full review »

The guests are often pretty great but they’re usually being herded away from open discussion into the hosts’ somewhat fragmented ideological framework seemingly for the validation of said fragmented ideological framework.

I’m center-right and was looking for leftist commentary to balance out my news (which is hard to find with all the woke nonsense). While I disagree with a lot of the takes, Kyle and Krystal are balanced in their approach and have interesting guests. I’ll keep listening!

Being a β€œprogressive” definitely isn’t what it used to be. Woke ideology and identity politics is the biggest cause of the divide we see in out country right now.

I am so glad that these two decided to get together to do a podcast. It’s nice to see Kyle interviewing people for a change. Secular Talk is my go to for news, because of how insightful Kyle is.

I like the interviews, but Kyle is so cringe-inducing that it’s hard to listen to at times. I like his opinions, but there’s a lot of awkward comments and unfunny jokes from Kyle, followed by fake laughter from Krystal.

Krystal and Kyle are by far the best political commentators out there. Neither are out of touch. They are both brilliant. They’re consistently correct on issues. And they have incredibly interesting guests on their show, very respectable people. 10/10 show, 10/10 hosts, 10/10 guests Love it all.
