Great Show!

This is the best locally produced show on KUOW by far. Good range of guests and coverage of topics of interest to those in the Seattle area. Keep up the good work!

Absolutely Required Listening for Seattle

Insightful, amusing and inclusive of varied viewpoints. Guaranteed you will learn something important from Bill Radke and the rotating panel of smart, we’ll-informed journalists and politicians. I NEVER miss this show.

Informative but very biased

The guests reflects the Seattle demographics, which means they go from very much left to squishy right-of-center. If you keep an active mind you can still get a lot of good info from the show. I wish they had Joni Balter more often; she's the best of the crew, IMHO.

Élection discussion... not clear enough

I wish your discussion about election results and what passed and what did not and the results of state house was more clear. I still don’t know if Dems have majority in Wa state or not. I have to go to Ny Times election results to find specifics. No I don’t watch tv either so radio is my main news... also if Wa needs a way for a carbon tax, the simple answer is explained by Robert Reich, just go to his YouTube explanation... quite simple really.

Very well moderated

I really, really respect and appreciate the way Bill Radke moderates this snow. There is fairness, compassion, humor, good questions, and occasionally pushing a bit on guests to not let them off the hook. I’ve heard only one bad episode, and that’s when a guest was on who didn’t seem game to follow the ‘disagree without being angry and attacking’ vibe of the show. To my knowledge that guest has not been back since.Chris Vance and Rob McKenna do a great job of intelligently representing what is sometimes the under-heard point of view in Seattle.

Balanced take on Seattle news from varied opinions

When Chris Vance, Joni Balter, and Erica “Crank” Barnett are on Bill’s show the soft Right, Center, and far Left (this is public radio afterall) all have a chance to voice their opinions on head taxes, bike lanes, the homeless, and many other issues that make up Seattle politics. Balter always brings a voice of reason.

Balanced and Informative

Bill does a great job teeing up interesting and relative topics. I very much appreciate the diverse views of the panelists he secures - as a listener it helps me dorm my own opinion which tends to be somewhere in between 🙂

2/2/18 podcast

Give room to Joni Balter. I’ve enjoyed her journalistic no-nonsense expertise for years. But I unsubscribed after the shrill ranting Savage brought to the show 2/2/18 and the subsequent war between Chris and him. Chris is usually more point-counter-point but you hear his struggle with the baiting.Listen to it again: how many times did she attempt to speak but was drowned out, even by the host? 20+ in 10 minutes? As a listener, that this was a dumb, out of control mess to listen to. I’ve been on the fence on the show for a while but sometimes it’s useful for local commentary.But I can find shouting matches between people who talk past each other armed w lists of contextual facts anywhere. What I want is respectful debate from various points of view. I think Bill usually tries to make that happen so I might check back depending on the make-up and if that nonsense isn’t tolerated.
