Trumpsters LIE

Trumpsters LIE and this is just another outlet that doesn't push against their LIES.

Great interviewer!

Just listened to the interview with Chip Roy, “rock ribbed conservative.” Tim Alberta asked pointed questions in a respectful way that elicited straight answers from Roy. This is exactly the kind of political discourse we need more of. Great job! I’m making Off Topic one of my regular go-to podcasts.

Right wing bias

I unsubscribed from this podcast after the Steve Scalise interview. The host let him blatantly lie with no push back at all. Scalise said the right was never violent, that it was a problem only on the left. He claimed that Democrats were paid to attack Trump supporters. He claimed the right never treated Obama disrespectfully and that Obama was never threatened. I Frankly, I was appalled. There was no follow up much less push back. This went so far beyond being a softball interview that I can no longer listen to it. This is not journalism.

Okay

Isaac asks some good questions, but he interrupts the guest too much and focuses on small details too much. I just listened to the Mazie Hirono episode, and he asked a question about whether she thought Brett Kavanaugh was lying in his hearing about 6 different times. Although I love the guests, I constantly cringe and feel physically uncomfortable when I listen to this because of the host.

Disappointing Work from an Unimpressive Journalist

Conceptually, a great idea for a podcast. In practice, very disappointing. It is hard to take Isaac Dovere seriously as a political journalist when almost everyone he interviews is obviously left-leaning and almost no one he interviews is obviously right-leaning. Bias.

Interviewer condescending

I gave this episode with John Dean a 3. He deserved a 5 where the interviewer was condescending to John. This man lived Watergate and I lived through it during high school. Mr. Dean presents from what he’s lived and experienced and compares to the nightmare of the White House and president now. Just because someone is older, doesn’t mean they don’t know what they are talking about. I have downloaded several episodes with people who have experienced life, are talking. If the interviewer is still rude, this podcast is going to be deleted for me with lower ratings.

Offbeat & interesting

Both interviews & interviewees are original & topics picked are insightful. Topics you haven’t expected but maybe thinking of wanting to ask these he selects!

Great content, odd style

Great topics and interviewees - appreciate the in-depth chat on these people/issues. Isaac’s questions are good ones, but his style is this weird banter that makes me question if he’s talking sh** to them or flirting with them. Some playful/fun chat is nice, but let the guests speak and don’t demean them!
