Excellent, and as usual, the very best way for your family and friends and coworkers to stay informed and they are still the best balanced and positively true and pleasant experience with the world news & politics.....

Reports “sides” of news stories, but not the type of reporting that holds anyone accountable

You all strive to be as objective as possible, even when the facts themselves push for incentive against outright liars. I know that must be a difficult road to walk. Thanks for your work.

Good content! Both talk so FAST.

Update: it comes out midday, yet they discuss yesterday’s headlines leaving out late details. The things that came to light today - they’ll talk about tomorrow. I also note how they always try “explain” what Trump “meant” to say. They clean up his fragmented and distorted statements and...Read full review »

I listen every day as soon as the pod drops. Thank you all for your hard work. Definitely helping keeping my sanity through 2020 and covid-19.

The politics podcast team is wonderful at informing you without it feeling like a lecture. You feel part of a conversation in a way that makes current events seem less intimidating and makes you love the hosts!

Thank you for the work you do, I have been listening for a while. Love the pictures so I can see who you are...especially Sam...HOT! Keep it coming!

I have not missed an episode since January of 2016 and I miss the old voices that actually had fair analysis of the news. Since Trump has become our President I have not heard this podcast say one good thing about our President. I listen to it now just to hear the fake news talking points. It’s...Read full review »

Instead of several trillion dollar acts of congress, why don’t they send each of us one million dollars. It would only cost the treasury 328 million. We could pay off our debts, stay at home until the virus is under control, then buy more stuff that would create a demand for manufacturing, and...Read full review »

I miss this podcast being only a couple times a week. Now that it’s everyday, they cover the exact same stuff as Up First in the same way. That said, Mara Liasson is a queen. I wish she did something all on her own. I’d listen to anything she does. I like this podcast because you get a good...Read full review »

The best part about about the Corona virus is these fantastic broadcasters are working from home and their kids and dogs in the background lighten the mood that the news sometimes dampen. I love this podcast and love it just a little more during these times.
Louise@28 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/19/20
I love them! Kids, dogs, husbands washing dishes or bringing in flowers! I love them all! I’m at home with all of my interruptions too so I love that we’re in it together! I come for the political insight, I stay for the human connection.
LawyerMom13 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/19/20
Easily my favorite of all podcasts. Wish they covered everything, not just politics! Funny, kind and a welcome breath of humanity.

I love this podcast, listen all the time!
Sadfan49 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/16/20
I like the show. But was it necessary to point out someone doing dishes in the background? We get it. Everyone is working from home or in different environments right now. You don’t need to call out your co host for the distant background noise. It was rude.
amsmith131 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/15/20
Overall, a brief, lighthearted update on political news. I’m a left leaning centrist, and I regularly hear enough right leaning view points on here to believe they do their best to stay balanced. To the hosts, you’re great, but be careful to differentiate between your own insights and the...Read full review »

rootedwomon via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/14/20
Not sure why my phone is downloading 173 episodes of your show at once, but this is the only show where this periodically happens every few months. Is it a bug or are you intentionally trying to inflate your numbers? Unsubscribing and deleting the show from my library are good fixes that seem to...Read full review »

You don’t have to agree with everything but I don’t see hate being spread by the information that is being shared on NPR. Thank you for tour hard work.
cfggfrt via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/11/20
I’m a liberal but I like news that doesn’t lean left or right. The liberal bias is so apparent in this podcast that, in my eyes, it damages the show’s credibility.
Scottztotz via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/11/20
So frustrating to see how the Joe Biden sexual assault scandal is being ignored compared to the Kavanaugh witch hunt. Makes you want to tear your hair out.

The bbc has upped its already top gear game during Covid 19.
raulrey0 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/11/20
This is what y’all do to Steven Crowder and Ben Shapiro. This show is trash and for trash people. People with TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome) listen to this. You have no idea what you’re talking about and you should read up on what you talk about. People drinking fish tank cleaner is not...Read full review »

My first podcast ever that I started listening to regularly and eagerly looking forward to was the NPR Politics podcast which is still my most highly valued listen. I love getting a well rounded perspective on daily politics and I really enjoy the good willed nature of everyone on that show. Also...Read full review »

First, love the show. Longtime listener. Thank you all so much. In a recent can’t-let-it-go, a discussion about manicures began with reference to the fact that only women we’re in the pod that day. However, mani-pedis are not just for women. My wife used to frequently tell me that she...Read full review »

Great podcast for those interested in the in and outs coming out of Washington with a centrist outlook and not an over bearing amount of bias to where it throws off the whole podcast. Big fan.
Ricardo_1223 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/10/20
Really? Robes and toilet flushing? I get the aim for a light-hearted tone but this is starting to feel like the decline in quality due to the twenty-four-hour news cycle. You are better than this. Fewer episodes with more thorough content would be preferable.
JPG43 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/08/20
The people who are on this show are goofy, silly, and overly-energetic. There are tons of serious shows out there more deserving of your time. Condescending and biased.
getsomenick via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/08/20
It made sense when there was new info every day with impeachment but now that the podcast is every day it feels like just another bite sized cable news segment. There is no time for any of the topics to be explored in any sort of depth and it makes me sad because I like the hosts and value their...Read full review »

Meh
Less substantive than it was. Liked a good blast of information and love on. We never connected with the personalities before COVID. We don’t need personal updates about your children now.
JKendallC via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/06/20
Tired of all the second guessing of when the President knew what and when pertaining to the virus. MOVE ON! To borrow a line from Hillary Clinton, “What difference does it make now”
Awbk169dhOHIO via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/06/20
I love to keep up with American politics and enjoy how the NPR team make sure to explain everything in depth and detail for those of us that want to keep up!
Emma_ScottNZ via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 05/05/20
Love the hosts and their banter. Find it all very informative, intelligent, and fun. Really have trouble with trigger warnings for something as light as general discussion of sexual assault as I think they are demeaning to the listeners.
sigfriedandroy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/03/20
NPR has so many great outlets for connection to the community, and this political discourse podcast does its best to report as neutrally as possible while still clearly promoting a liberal mindset
Cat Gabriel via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/03/20
Today’s pod cast was cringe worthy. The explicit description by an untrustworthy narrator was not fair or balanced. So I can 26 years later come out with this outrageous charge She gave an w account a year ago that lacked sizzle do she just remembered the rest. No dates. No real...Read full review »

The news these days is overwhelming, but I listen to this podcast at the end of my work day without fail. It’s a manageable amount of thoughtful content in a very, very noisy world.

Great way to hear impartial & factual & topical news & current affairs from the states Mimzienc

The best podcast there is!
piratemobile via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/27/20
You forgot to mention that Elizabeth Warren is from a state with a GOP governor who would appoint a republican to replace her senate seat. That is a very big downside. I’ve heard reports that Chuck Schummer would oppose her as VP.
Storlietelling via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/27/20
Long time listener, but lately very disappointed about the one-sided coverage on politics. Good listen if you want a one-sided view of the world. Guarantee you all of the hosts voted democrat. Is that bad in itself? No not necessarily, but i means they don’t do a good job of explaining the other...Read full review »

Your podcasts are usually timely and important. However, to even give any breath to the ridiculous “story” against Biden shows your poor judgement. You’re playing into “others” hands. Rise above that sort of “dirt” story, for all of our benefits.
