Oddly enough I also am writing from Aotearoa New Zealand. And I also listen to all episodes of The Political Scene. Often I learn things but mainly I enjoy hearing a rational, thoughtful conversation among informed, experienced , yet still caring professionals.

Your recent discussion of the political change of Democratic Party Senators and Joe Biden toward any d to Israel failed to mention the primary results in Democratic primaries. The uncommitted voters who cast undecided ballots sent a clear message to the campaign that they needed a change in...Read full review »

Talked at length about the Tik Tok fiasco without mentioning the fact that American Tech Companies will benefit tremendously by forcing Tik Tok into a corner. They spend millions and millions lobbying our government with anti Tik Tok propaganda. Closed door meetings with our clueless gov reps...Read full review »

Everyone has great insight but SG always shuts down or interrupts the other hosts which is rude and not great to listen to

The Political Scene is the high point of my listening of the week. Susan, Evan, and Jane are the smartest columnists anywhere. The touch of magic that makes the Political Scene special is the affability that is readily evident among three brilliant friends.

Excellent choices, thank you for the enlightening conversation!

Would David Remnick please stop interrupting guests? The Judith Butler interview was a painful listen. Almost every single answer they gave was interrupted. They deserved a more respectful interlocutor.
Syd 35743 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/18/24
I’m finding that Susan’s overall analysis is arrogant and unhelpful. She comes across as a know it all who can’t admit when she’s wrong. She literally comes across as a hyper partisan hack who wrongly assumes her analysis is absolutely correct and the others don’t know what they’re talking about....Read full review »

Comparing this to other political discussion podcasts (Slate’s, for example), this is actively painful to listen to as the hosts continuously talk over each other and denigrate each others perspectives. Please cut off each others mics when one person is talking or something, because the current...Read full review »

I agree with other recent reviews. Susan Glasser who is very smart, for some reason, not only has to always jump in to emphatically voice her prognoses of doom, she often has to drop her insider creds too. Disappointing. I unsubscribed, checked in again and it’s now escalated into combat. We are...Read full review »

Lately I find SG to be too combative. She is very smart, but so are the other two. JM has an amazing amount of reporting experience and she is often shut down or shut out. EO has a great radio voice and is the best moderator. I am listening for their intelligence, experience and respectful ...Read full review »

I think these three people are brilliant journalists. Wonderful writing, incredible research, fair perspectives. Two of them have well timed, pleasing voices. One of them is like listening to the proverbial fingernails on the blackboard. And yet she wants to do as much talking as she possibly can...Read full review »

Diverse range of topics and guest: consistently worth listening too.

Ty Cobb? Ty Cobb was a baseball player who died in 1961… Am I missing something?
😉💙🙃 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/26/24
The weekly Friday episode is really the best analysis of its kind I’ve encountered in any medium. The host for any particular episode has obviously created (and gently enforces as needed) a thoughtful structure based on the content. A master class. Intelligent, informed, respectful, and...Read full review »

Some really brilliant work here. I enjoy the podcast throughout the week but think it feels like an afterthought grab-bag other weeks (specifically Monday and Wednesday). Lots of plugging other work or things you can read more cohesively via the magazine if you subscribe. I thoroughly enjoy...Read full review »

A long-running podcast, with a strong cast of rotating hosts. I only wish that David Remnick would refrain from including his Radio Hour-style shows, which don’t fit the rest of the programming.
Jamie M. Hodge via Apple Podcasts · Denmark · 02/17/24
Besides being totally biased and one sided, who is editing this show? The Feb 16th episode released on Spotify jumps around, repeats parts and cuts other parts off. Did anyone working there even listen to the podcast before releasing it? You can’t write reviews on Spotify so I came here to leave...Read full review »

Like, one expects like New Yorker contributors to like know more like words than “like”. Like, If you can’t speak like, stick to writing, like.
buthidae2 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/15/24
Evan says ‘like’ a lot! Kind of distracting- pods are listening sessions, and all the valley speak detracts from great dialogue.
xcnitti via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 02/15/24
Osnos,Mayer, Glasser, the best and most experienced journalists with the backup of the New Yorker team.
Oystrmn via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/15/24
I do like the Friday podcast - Evan Osnos is smart with a great voice and too kind letting SG hog the show. JM is so great, with such deep experience.
Susanfriberg via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/11/24
You guys are so good. You make the minutiae of American politics so fascinating and the 3 of you have such good chemistry. I’m a podcast glutton and yours is now my favorite.
Maryanchovy via Apple Podcasts · Switzerland · 02/11/24
I’m less inclined to listen to any NYer podcasts especially this one when you (especially Susan Glaser) talk and talk about Ukraine funding but not about blank checks to Israel. Why isn’t the connection to the billions of $ for the military war machine and oil not being addressed - especially...Read full review »

Your latest podcast where each of you are just repeating and reinforcing the words of the special coucel is absolutely more mindless and despicable then the actual source. You ought to have taken that awful sentence apart and stopped reinforcing it’s last word “elderly”. There are plenty...Read full review »

My #1 recommended weekly roundtable. Tune in to hear a deep dive of political news with a caliber of thinking you won’t get anywhere else. I started listening because Jane Mayer is one of my favorite reporters, and I found Evan and Susan to be equally good. Excellent across the board.
patconnor via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/10/24
enjoying the show: funny, insider scoops, newsworthy. thank you!
midwestBlue via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/10/24
I love this podcast, and never miss a program. Evan Osnos, Susan Glasser, and Jane Mayer are so current with their analyses of the state of politics in the United States today. Admittedly they have a bit of a liberal bias, but they know their subjects exceedingly well. For anyone who wants an...Read full review »

Don't reference a lot of what's going on in Palestine with why Biden so unliked rn and make it seem like his age is the biggest thing. Noticed this for awhile and am finally over it and moving to less biased news.Read full review »

Disappointing to hear you focus on Biden falling videos. Why not focus on Trump’s climbing stairs with toilet paper attached to his shoe, or having to hold someone’s hand as he descends etc. Honestly, quit with the promotion of ageist tropes & focus on their policies. Focus on who they are as...Read full review »

1) Tyler Foggat has a really grating uptalk voice 3) The production is terrrrible—the post production punch-ins, the stilted scripting/pacing, the weird funeral home chain new hire training video soundtrack.

The New Yorker has in the past few years become a shrill progressive rag that doesn’t even recognize its own self-righteous assumptions. What a far fall. Can you imagine an article or speaker with ideas outside its smug bubble? Evan/Jane/Susan are full of insight, however, but the rest needs an...Read full review »

The best US political podcast. The three hosts are each legendary. Relaxed, human, to the point, with humility and no nonsense.

If you’ve ever wondered what Beltway Brain sounds like, this is the podcast for you.
tmaestro via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/06/24
They have some great topics, but some interviewers make it difficult to listen! Tyler Foggatt talks too fast, as though she’s in a rush Please find some better interviewers!
daisynjoey123 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/21/23
Susan Glasser just regurgitates weeks-old New York Times insights and speaks in cliches. She should be removed from the show, she is NOT New Yorker caliber.
Mo_boo-toe via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/19/23
I am disgusted with this podcast. I am a long time listener and I am simply stunned with how The New Yorker has covered the Israel/Hamas conflict. Have your reporters and editorial staff viewed any of the October 7th footage? On this most recent podcast you basically said (and softballed it to...Read full review »

Susan Glasser, Jane Mayer

Jane Meyer’s voice might not last a lifetime, but she’s a thoughtful host.

How about you for a change discuss about the continued hate on Muslims and the rise in Islamophobia and all that’s happening in Palestine.
adhoramirza via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 12/01/23
When I heard that Jane Mayer had a new podcast I jumped to sign up. Hers are among the best, most cohesive and well researched books ever. She and Heather Cox Richardson rank up there with the best of the best. Their material ought to be on every American’s reading list. If you want to understand...Read full review »

Very concerning to think this is a government official and listen to her put words in people’s mouths, equating Palestinian and student calls for freedom to their oppression as as antisemitic. Shocking that there will be a rise in antisemitism, when you dilute and cheapen antisemitism to the...Read full review »
