interesting observations as re video conferencing. in my case, video conferencing is far less stressful and far more nourishing emotionally. for many senior citizens like me, the move from strictly-texting to eyes-on face- to-face conversation is welcome.

I love your podcast, but am sick after learning about the John Weaver mess. Why didn’t you just tell us that you were no longer affiliated with The Lincoln Project? When you created this podcast I was so happy that you were keeping these discussions going. It’s terribly disappointing. I will no longer listen to Politicology.

Hey @RonSteslow. Just curious? WHY weren't you TRUTHFUL about CHANGING Podcast name... you & @MikeMadrid did NOT say that you left @ProjectLincoln (due to John Weaver story NEVER even takled about it) not to my knowledge anyway. Lets start by being HONEST to fans & listeners. Towards the end you mentioned HONESTY. 🤔

All the psycho-babble in this podcast can be equally applied to the left/BLM/antifa mob that stormed, destroyed, and murdered in multiple cities across the country all summer. They normalized the violence

I'm extremely grateful that The Lincoln Project exists. you consistently bring me something that I can't find anywhere else. I have a small criticism. more and more across the American media landscape I hear questions posed "so how should listeners think about..." or "so tell listeners what to make of ..." with immense respect and acknowledgment of the expertise and experience of your guests, I do not listen to TLP (or other podcasts) to be told what to think or how to think. the hordes who stormed the Capitol building on January 6th were people who could be told what and how to think. that's just not me. I suspect it's not most of your audience. how else could prompts and questions be phrased to elicit the vital commentary of your guests?

Absolutely correct. People all over the world are watching the US politics and have a better understanding of it and what's happening than most Americans. In my travels throughout America I found first hand the ignorance and lack of curiosity of the rest of the world to be astounding. In fact most Armish I encountered knew more about the rest of the world. America is in a very dangerous place right now.

my personal pet New Law: no person running for, holding, or elected to federal office may possess, display, design, MARKET, or legitimize in any way, any flag bearing their own name, brand, message, or slogan, nor any other flag except the American Flag. i've heard no one speak on the profound implications of the so-called 'trump flag'- how virtually blasphemous that is, how utterly un-america, ANTI-american. i cannot put into words how disturbing that has been for me, even in the face of all the other disturbing things in the trump era.

every time Madrid shows up, I love him more. he makes me question myself, why am I not a Republican? Then I remember: Lindsey Graham, Ted Cruz, Mitch Mcconnell...

good evening/extreme early morning, ok replacement for Trumpism. If you are ok swearing here's one from UK/Scotland fuckwittery or numptyism. A fuckwit is either a completely clueless individual who blunders on or someone who does things on his or her owns interests. A numpty is an absolute idiot or fool with the standard definitions of those words. I try my best not to reference or use Trump or Trumpism when talking to my friends and family. AAAAAAARRRRRGGGGGHHHH, that damn flag haunts my nightmares, please don't mention it. keep up the great work Ron, Mike, Susan, Lucy, Tara

we have the language. the words. but we've never had to use them in living memory. so...what to do? how to make the definitions clear - how to make us see that those words, and only those words, apply to this situation?
