"Liberal" is a centrist position. the candidates and policies they're calling liberal are Progressive or trying to appeal to progressives. The Daily does have a strong Neo-Liberal bias, as does the NY Times. They also omitted Tulsi Gabbard.

The podcast isn't biased. They're covering candidates that matter. Check the polls: https://morningconsult.com/2020-democratic-primary/. Some of the people mentioned below aren't even in the top 10 of potential democratic nominees

Jared Poulter I agree 100%. Maybe that's the reason why I keep going back and forth trying to decide if I would support it or not. I wish there were more examples than Alaska to study and see the effects. What Republicans are running besides Trump? None of the Dems seem business savvy enough, except Yang possibly? Not looking good IMO

Andrew Yang also not mentioned... Daily is great overall but sometimes it seems that NY reporters miss a lot when researching a topic...
