it's interesting that despite 3 huge endorsements and clearly stomping in the debate, no mention of Bernie in show title. who cares about Buttegieg? he's polling at single digits. Will give the show a listen and see if Bernie is mentioned, but it is irregularly frustrating when he is consistent, methodical, and poignant to see him downplayed and ignored.

Technical error apparently fixed. Playback worked fine for me as of mid-morning Central Time, September 22.

i feel like the pod people have a deep bias for Biden and sugar coat his answer like those on race or past voting or even his "gaffs." Lovett seemed surprised that everyone was against the old white dude

Jay, now that you've failed to win the nomination with the way you have chosen to deliver your message you need to reassess the best remaining chance for seriously addressing climate change. Andrew Yang recognizes that "IT IS WORSE THAN YOU THINK" when it comes to this issue. Walk back your dismissal of him here and endorse. Thank you for your contribution. #Yang2020

Of course any sane person would vote for whomever becomes the Democratic candidate. But that doesn't mean that the presidentials are useless. Any sane person would also prefer a Democratic candidate who has an actual strategy when it comes to the climate catastrophe (or, infinitely less important, all the other stuff) over Joe Biden.

Right. Diversity. Right. Combinations. Did people really boo someone for saying they don't mind to hear other ideas? Yeah, something to ponder. Buttigieg/Williamson. Deal with diversity better than maga, i call on you lol.

A year and a half. And i still laughed at the bob Mueller taking his first steps jokes even though we lost that mueller fascination now... Eh. Has anyone tried listening to this entire cast from beginning now, post Mueller report months? It's honestly a remarkable history exercise and i feel so bad for everyone not knowing what came after.

Nicky leacked. I'm listening to this a year later and recognized both m wolf and k tur by their voice from middle of podcast. I mean that's probably ordinary, but it felt good. Ok. Stop. :)
