it's like playing Impeachment Bingo and everyone raises their hand and yells BINGO!

it's more than a little ironic that the PSA team feigns concern about Cardi B 's language, and protecting children from hearing it, when Pod Save America regularly drops multiple F bombs in every episode. Profanity is just a lazy habit, when there are far more accurate and effective word choices to describe frustration with the current state of our politics.

thanks for giving student voice in teacher strike! long over-due. some of the first teacher interview provided voice to the same old criticisms- "throw money at education" and we have to teach to the test. the issues affecting education are so much more nuanced than presented. second teacher also reinforced idea that "we need motivated students". public schools are tasked with teaching all students. he made an excellent point about resources for teachers.

I'm kinda excited about Tulsi Gabbard running (the reason I was listening to this podcast) and the fact that she gets both criticism and praise from the left and right shows she's nuanced and has her on ideals. Need to know more but I'm leaning her way. 2020 may be even crazier than last election

I disagree on the idea that all of the candidates will be more or less the same on policy. They will all try to sound the same on policy, but plenty have already made sure to advocate for things like universal *access* to healthcare, i.e. put some extra bandaids on Obamacare or maybe just try to push for a public option. Meanwhile, the actual progressives are not shy about commiting to actual policy like medicare for all or a green new deal.

I believe Most voters do Want the wall!! you say that President Trump is trying to force the taxpayers to build the wall. Again you are wrong!! Most of the Taxpayers want the wall!!!!

Connor Kormos You don't think we're significantly closer than we were over two years ago? Really? Anti "other" rhetoric? Increased openness of pro fascist and supremacist groups, demonizing the press, blatant and unrepentant lying and misrepresentation on the part of the administration and Republicans in Congress refuse to investigate or hold the president accountable? None of this raises alarms? How do you think this stuff starts?

Scott Stock What are you talking about? How is America even remotely close to being a "neo-facist state" with a wall?? I don't particularly want it but that's just absurd.

Hilarious! I have already started by getting a Netflix and Amazon subscription. You had me at "That's So Raven." "Insecure" is so good, especially the wine talks after each episode. "Roxanne, Roxanne," "The Incredible Jessica Jones," and "Nappily Ever After" are highly recommended. "The Crown" is excellent when you have insomnia. LOL.
