Fake claim. Truly one sided view. If you are an independent, don’t listen. Words do matter, just not these. Polarized views from the left or right will never heal this country.

I appreciate the thoughtful and informed decisions.

Norm, Orenstein and Kavita Patel have extensive experience in current affairs. They bring that knowledge to this podcast, making it something I look forward to listening to every week. I find Kavita Patel to be a true renaissance person. I have not known many doctors with such a broad range of...Read full review »

Two of my favorite guests on one of my favorite podcasts, David Rothkopf’s Deep State Radio, Kavita Patel and Norm Ornstein, now have a pod of their own (a re-launch of Words Matter) and it’s an excellent one!

Appreciated her insight and analysis on Deep State Radio and look forward to her deeper dives here. The first episode is a great start to the relaunch.
Truxtun_BK via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/10/22
Their inaugural relaunching of Words Matter was one of the best podcasts I’ve heard: NO and KP are both engaging conversationalists who really listen to one another, and it’s obvious that they care deeply about the issues (guns and abortion in this episode). They have a rare fund of experience in...Read full review »

Thank you for in-depth reporting allowing me to listen with my heart as well as my head. : )

I have been a listener since day 1 w Elise and Steve. Was very disappointed in the way they ended their associations w the show. I continue to listen because of Katie. I am not really interested in Deep State Radio. I would subscribe to DSR if it was something I wanted to hear. I will/would be...Read full review »

It was eye-opening to hear this speech, and very disheartening that not much has changed since. I hope that what he espoused happens.

Thank you Dr. King and Words Matter for aligning and prioritizing the relevant reasons to be alive. He struggle for equality endures.
tsaffy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/18/21
The interviewer admits Rod is her friend and proceeds to give him a full episode to ‘explain’ his indefensible behavior related to the Mueller investigation where he obstructed a thorough investigation by limiting the scope of inquiry. Rosenstein’s self justification sounds as self serving — as...Read full review »

Smart interviews that provide great context and historical background for major issues of the day. It’s news that is also fun to hear.

Sorry Kate but it is well known who is the dark money behind the Federalist Society. You lost a ton of credibility here.
gigeugene via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/20/20
I've listened to a few episodes and am loving it so far. This podcast is full of interesting historical facts & context, important takeaways and helpful information to use when navigating current events from a media perspective. Keep up the great work!Read full review »

I love this podcast but was really sad to hear the last 10 seconds of this episode, which was recycled banter from months ago.

I understand and respect that some want to stick with free podcasts. But for those who value getting a broad array of vital reporting and analysis with limited discretionary funds, consider joining Cafe Insider.

Will you interview Rod Rosenstein again now that we KNOW he curtailed the FBI counter Intel investigation making it SEEM like Mueller was going to do it when Rod KNEW that wasn’t the case? That’s not very upstanding OR patriotic, is it?
mlcinco via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/30/20
Pass on this pod, not worth your time. Lockhart hackish ways just come off like he is a snot nosed little kid. Can’t believe they this people will pay $$$ for this lol. Maybe they need it to payout settlements.

Michael Steele is living in lala land of if he really thinks that the evil working in Trump’s White House aren’t explaining to him exactly what QAnon is about, what David Duke is about, etc. I agree that Democrats need to lay close and better attention to middle income suburban voters but that...Read full review »

Why decent podcasts decide to go for the coin is beyond me. I enjoyed many of these episodes and like so many other pods will never pay. The choices are so far & wide for good pods. No need to pay a dime and in this day & are? Not even close. All the best.
journoMomx4 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/17/20
I listen to all your episodes, so I was really sorry to hear you are moving to subscription only. I refuse to pay for a podcast because I can’t afford it. I’ll miss you, but not for long. F Kelleher Wisconsin
youareangeringme via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/16/20
This is the most screwed up podcast I’ve ever listened to more than once. A rotating cast of hosts, long hiatuses, and now pay only? Ask David Axelrod how that worked out for him.
Mannydog via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/10/20
Ugh... seriously? You’re going to let him get away with saying all this with no pushback? Lame interview. Y’all literally let him get away with just defending everything he said and did as correct and appropriate. This is my first time listening to this podcast. I can’t imagine listening again.
camellia blossoms via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/07/20
Rod Rosenstein was rightly asked if systemic racism exists in policing. Why zero follow up on his answer (no)? This was my first and last time listening to this podcast.
Me, who else? via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/06/20
Just listened to the conversation with Rod Rosenstein. The back and forth about why James Comey was fired as FBI Director was fascinating and irritating at the same time. At one point Rosenstein said he would not have been surprised if Comey was fired no matter who won the 2016 election for all...Read full review »

Hard to pick a worse person for this program than the guy who stood behind Barr while Barr lied about the Mueller report Really bad choice
Jena265 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/06/20
Listened to Rosenstein interview b/c it was fed thru subscription to Preet’s podcast. Preet would never allowed Rosenstein such a “walk in the park” interview of lobbed softballs. Two examples: 1) Rosenstein’s knowingly crafted his memo against Comey at t-rump’s request to allow t-rump to...Read full review »

Interesting. I am really glad to have heard this. And, he sounds like a lawyer and not in a good way. Humanity stripped away. I will put this podcast on radar for sure. Thanks.

So is this pathetic podcast.
SquireCD via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/03/20
OMG. What a political hack. Sad that Joe & Katie didn’t challenge him more but instead let him lie & spin about the Mueller investigation and Barr’s actions. I’ll give one more episode a listen before removing from my podcasts. Definitely will not be paying for it on Cafe.

What an intelligent and fair reporting of FACTS. It is refreshing! It is enlightening! It is useful! Nothing better in a political podcast. 11/25/19. Best of all podcasts. Keep it going. 12-16-19. Adam Schiff interview was tops!03092020 Love the podcast. Sensible, factual interesting.

This podcast is excellent, informative, straight forward, no hype. In today’s interview with Stacey Abrams, she demonstrated beyond any doubt for me why she should be Biden’s pick for VP. She is brilliant, articulate, personable and makes the case for herself as the VP pick that is concise...Read full review »

One of my favourite podcasts. I love listening to Katie and Joe. They help me understand the horrible mess that our country is weathering. Often give me some sort of comfort that I’m longing for. They are smart and sincere. Thank you for your hard work.

Although relatively new to this podcast, I have thoroughly enjoyed every episode. I appreciate the tone set for thoughtful conversation, no matter the topic. And I learn something (factual) every time. Love it ( and the theme music).
