Al makes any and every subject he covers interesting and informative. He has the unique perspective of a comedian combined with a politician, which is refreshing in this country’s mess of a government. Thank you Al!

Thanks Al!

Oh please oh please do another interview with Bob Odenkirk. That was such an easy flowing conversation full of laughs and hilarious life stories. Except the death. Not that. But all else was so charming!!

I enjoy Al’s insights on this weekly podcast. Some of his impressions of old colleagues are hilarious.

Entertaining, informative and funny. Getting us all to smile when we want to scream in rage. One my favorite podcasts. I savour each episode. Yes there are several I’ve listened to more than once.

Intelligent.

What an informative interview! He explained so much stuff that I didn’t know. How do we get this info out to everyone?

Hello from your friendly neighbor to the north! Can’t say how much I appreciate your perspective and clarity on everything. I started following politics when the former disgraced guy ran for office, which in turn made me pay attention to my own government and ensure I’m doing my part to hold them...Read full review »

I really enjoy this podcast. I always learn something and I always laugh! I wish that Al was still my senator….

This terrific podcast offers fresh, trenchant, and sometimes amusing insight during conversations with interesting guests. Why does The Al Franken Podcast promote inherently risky crypto assets for retirement accounts? Horrible! Shame on you, Al Franken!

Al
Great show great guests intelligent questions and themes. But I think it would be better if you laughed and cackled less and gave more time to your guests and your are excellent questions. There are times when your laughter extends and blocks and interrupts your guests. Congratulations on a great...Read full review »

I love this podcast!! I’m a big Al Franken fan. In fact I wish he still was a senator!! Run for the senate again Al!!!

Al gets 5 stars! His guests are fabulous. The bonus is we saved money on my Father in laws hearing aids. Does that mean I have to talk to him? I may want 1/2 a star back

Well you finally have knocked it out of the park with a good one since the last one. Great episode today. Again

I am fascinated by the common sense perspective and insights Al Franken brings to the modern political arena. And here in this format, his true beginnings as a performer and comedian shine. He drops morsels of political insights with clarity and wit, at times dripping sarcasm. Engrossing guests....Read full review »

You should be ashamed about making light of this frightening truth. Were ALL of our Democratic leaders asleep at the wheel in not anticipating any of this?

Couldn’t get through an episode. Obnoxious.
Inwoodus via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/20/22
Have I told you lately that I love you? ( not in a jail house kind of way) but perhaps in a slavish appreciation of your acumen. I’ve just found your ‘cast’ and I’m a happy camper (sadly a bit more accurate than I’d like to admit) reading back, there seems to be an admission there. Well on to my...Read full review »

I love Al Franken. I read all his books as they came out, I’ve contributed to his campaign and I listen to all his podcasts. Some of his schticks grate and the ads on the podcast are beginning to go on a long time. He’s had some great guests but it will be harder to get serious people in the...Read full review »

Al, please read about the U. S. Attorneys who were investigating and preparing to prosecute Spiro Agnew. They were desperate to get through the work and somehow get Agnew out of office, by resignation or indictment. Because they had insiders’ knowledge and awareness that Nixon himself was going...Read full review »

Tick tock, just waiting for this “national treasure,” as Al called him, to fall. Timber! Watch out all you pseudo liberal Corporate Democratic hacks, your time is running out. Al, I thought you were better than lining up for Big Pharma. I was so very wrong.

Laurie has such a straight forward way of explaining things. The White House should hire her to get their messaging in order.
Bertha Snodgrass via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/10/22
A voice of reason and intelligence always has both interesting and good humored guests always a high quality production

This is the best and most informative conversation on COVID to date! I wish the world could/would hear it. Thank you for doing this thoughtful and clear discussion and sharing it. Rachel

To know Franken was elected through fraud and to know a biased charlatan when I hear him.

Two of my favorite people.

Al, I tuned in for the first time and gave up after many, many, many minutes of ads
DinoDad2 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/18/21
I look forward to Al’s (please excuse the familiarity) podcasts because they are informative without being pedantic. His guests are experts in the topic being discussed. The only downside is that while I become more informed I often become more worried, as with the latest podcast on a woman’s...Read full review »

Just a monstrous piece of human garbage
Mr.Bob Dobalina via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/12/21
Al has so many talents, and was one of the greatest senators ever! He truly cares about our democracy and is a super funny, intelligent man too! He has the courage to speak the truth and fight for the common people of this world. Minnesota loves you Al!!
luvagoodlaugh via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/10/21
I tell everyone to listen to this podcast. It is interesting and informative. I love way Al explains everything in a way that makes sense. I learn so much every episode.

You need to take over when Nancy retires!!!!!

Love your podcast! Your intro into the podcast is awesome, as well as the podcast itself. Please don’t change a thing. 6 stars!
Hightower007 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/22/21
Thank you for the interview with Senator Whitehouse. Unfortunately, it confirmed everything I already suspected about our Republican members of Scotus and the Appeals courts. How diabolical are the efforts made to transform the judiciary into a tool of the darkest powers of our country. When...Read full review »

Al Franken is smart and funny. He is a great interviewer, and I always learn something new. Thanks saw his show in DC recently. Just reminded me what a decent guy he is and how heartbroken I remain about his impulsive ouster from the Senate, that his former colleagues now regret. COME BACK, Al!
TishLJ via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/14/21
I hope Sen Franken is funnier when doing comedy than he is here. I listen when he has good guests I am willing to suffer through him to hear - the problem is he won’t let them talk nearly enough bc he loves to hear himself talk, make bad jokes and cackle too much. He also isn’t well prepared on...Read full review »

Please go back to the senate…we desperately need you there. Barbara NC

Love your interviews. Always makes me chuckle. Please do “The Mitch McConnell”. I don’t know how many times I’ve heard it, but it kills me every time! Keep up the good work Al.

An embarrassment to Liberals, this guy needs to go under a rock and never come out
