I’m only giving 5 stars for the episode with Ben Haddad. His voice is 🔥 He needs to be a regular host. Also waiting for Shadi’s mom as a guest.

Extremely Refreshing

First and most importantly they talk about interesting things.The dialogue is easy going and not at all contrived. I just think it’s really good.

Needs a little more focus

Shadi and Damir are fascinating and they are touching on some of the most important subjects that are often not well served by other politics podcasts, but they could use a little more structure so the conversation doesn’t turn into generic banter.

Great Podcast

Love everything they have to say; except when they talk about Obama’s legacy on the middle east.

Fantastic and informative.

Love this podcast. If it’s good enough for Pomerantsev, it’s good enough for me

Think before you talk

I listened to the episode where they talked about the shootings in El Paso and Dayton. I have liked stuff both Shadi and Damir have written. I found the conversation to be really unfocused and uninteresting. Apparently the worst thing about the two shootings was how it was annoying on Twitter in the aftermath. They talked around the El Paso shooter’s manifesto and dismissed the threat of white terrorism about which even the FBI is sounding the alarm. It was just a completely unserious discussion about the growing problem of violent anti-immigrant and anti-woman rhetoric being acted on by disturbed young men with easy access to guns.

Worth a subscription and listen

This podcast is worht subscribing and listening to. Shadi and Damir are two interesting and intriguing voices within American public and political discourse. They don't subscribe to conventional thinking about pertinent topics, and push back against typical impulses, reactions and responses that so many unfortunately have today.
