Steele could not be more clear about Black voters. I am a female Black voter over 60 and I support and listen to TLP, feeling a strong resonance with most everything that I hear but I have never voted Republican in a local election. And, based on the way things are going, I won't be voting Republican ever again, local or national. Democrats aren't a perfect fit for me but their spiel always aligns more closely with my real life experience.

Why is this person -- a criminal -- given air time? Especially from this podcast channel?

no disrespect intended toward either Reed or Michael but... I've learned nothing in the first 10 minutes of your conversation and I think I'll skip the rest.

TLP often makes me rethink my whole life... I have never self-identified as Republican; but, except for the idea of small government, I resonate with the way TLP defines Republican. I believe that government IS the people...or should be. it's not a question of big or small when we the people are collaborating to build the society we compose.

yes please continue holding the light to the corporate donors. they are central to the money-in-politics problem which is a big part of what ails us/U.S. however it's accomplished, a change of thinking in the corporate sector will have immeasurable positive impact on the American experiment going forward.

I noticed Meidas out of the corner of my eye last year and thought they were Lincoln Project wannabes. my eyes are open and looking right at Meidas Touch now. listening to this conversation made me very happy. feels like coming home.

As a moderate democratic woman, I have thoroughly enjoyed these podcasts for the past year, they have helped to motivate and inform my volunteer work for the Democratic Party. I had not closely followed the sexual harassment scandal but sensed that Reed’s addressing of the issue was not entirely sincere. After feeling a change in tone the absence of interventions of brilliant women like Jennifer Horn, I just looked her up and have a better understanding of the rift that was unconsciously dulling my appreciation for your work. I suggest you guys do a bit more soul searching and get some more EQ and women on your board if you want to survive and thrive. Please do this. We need your voice.

why doesn't the so-called mainstream media sound like the Lincoln Project? CPAC is a regrouping of the coup leaders. this is them planning their next attempt. why is TLP the only voice facing this and saying it out loud?

the Lincoln Project, especially this new iteration is where I come for a reality check. everyone else seems afraid to read the writing on the wall verbatim. my eyes and gut read "coup" but no one besides LP confirmed it. my eyes and gut said "Mitch is still looking for an angle" and, again, only LP confirmed it. keep going. I will keep listening and donating ... for the sake of my own sanity.
