All of the participants in this episode are being MUCH too charitable to the administration. This immigration 'proposal' is obvious white supremacist garbage, call it what it is!

I've been listening to this podcast for years, (since it began) but this year they are really getting insane. I feel like 1/2 the episode is time stamp intros, excessive chitchat, and 10 min of "can't let it goes'. it's getting really tiresome and I'm looking for alternatives now. I wish they treated the podcast in a more professional manner and condensed the content.

Thank you for discussing the electoral college, sadly I was disappointed at the lack of research and understanding. At present, any state that is reliably red or blue regardless the size is ignored during and after the presidential election, while small states vote's count more, only purple states matter.
