Wow, I thought you guys weren't biased. Not a single mention of how Gabbard got shut out of the debate (probably because she put the smack down on Harris), and all this talk about Warren when Sanders consistency polls higher than her. Your corporate funding is showing.

Jared S Confused why corporatists would want Warren over Bernie when her whole career even pre politics has been built on trying to level the playing field. People talk about her more because her campaign is gaining momentum whereas the jury is out on whether can even reconstitute his support from last cycle and hasn’t gained that momentum. I don’t dislike Gabbard (I actually like her more than most because she seems to actually have individual thoughts) but it’s fairly simple why she’s not in the debate - she didn’t meet the criteria. Fairly simple. If they wasted time talking about all the people that didn’t make the debate it’d be a boring podcast about unimportant things.

I don't really understand the need to be cute and all the pop culture references but aside from that an astute crew and good reporting.

You know what else a "vast online following" is? A vast OFFLINE following! Andrew Yang is the ONE for 2020. Get his book "The War On Normal People" where he's nailed many of the truly massive problems facing America/Canada. The other candidates don't even come close to his level of articulation of these problems. Do the research, think it through, and judge for yourself. #Yang2020 #HumanityFirst

Shanaya Painter Why are fully capable human beings allow themselves to have their mentality easily persuaded in any direction.

This makes me so mad. The Psych community has already established that there is not a link between mental illness and mass shootings. People with mental illnesses are more likely to hurt themselves than anyone else. What are precursors to mass shootings are substance abuse, chaotic personal relationships, history of violence, etc.

Beto is cool person and I voted Beto for senate, but not what we should strive for in President. I’m fully supporting Andrew Yang for 2020.

if your main concern is electability, consider this. Yang is a liberal who is actively taking people from Trump's base with his policies. if he wins the nomination, Trump is almost guaranteed to lose.

Interesting that in the Texas shooting, the shooter specifically said in his manifesto that he wasn't doing it because of Trump. I think making the tie too strong between anyone who says something inflammatory and a domestic terrorist is deeply problematic and only exacerbates divides.

How curious that a discussion on gun rights and violence in America is brought to you by the Walton Foundation, the owners of Walmart who ban violent video games but keep the actual guns on store shelves.

I am very excited to vote for Andrew Yang for 2020! I really hope the media and cable MSM gives more opportunity for Yang to talk about his policies

why do you waste my last five minutes in each podcast? I don't care about what you can't let go. just report news. there's plenty without fluffy filler and snarky editorializing.

My most recent text was to my husband: "Happy Gettysburg!" When we first started our relationship, we lived about an hour apart. I'd call him every night when he left my apartment to make sure he got home okay, and inevitably he would still be on the highway, almost always at the Gettysburg exit. So it kinda became our thing to give a shout-out to each other any time we passed that exit. That started 13 years ago, and we've moved several times since then, so we seldom see that section of the city any more. This particular time was over the past weekend, while on a road trip with my sister to visit her childhood bff's bridal shower, so there was a bit of extra romantic poignancy to it <3
