absolutely astounding. a conversation about abortion that didn't end up in tears or screaming or both. thank you for modelling civil debate. it is a vanishing format among us.

The content us very left leaning. the podcast sounds like one liberal arguing with the other liberal trying to sound even more left wing.

By the description compared to the title of the episodes how exactly are you trying to find “common ground”. Seems like more left leaning content pretending to be fair.

It would be great to have time stamps to easily jump to different topical sections in an episode.

he's right. I don't know why Kamala is running. I love her. I love watching her but I don't know why she's running.

I just started listening to this podcast and had an observation. Michelle seemed to be interrupting the other gentleman before he could get his point out. Not a good 'debate' if one side can't complete their point. Not sure I learned both sides.

so according to this guy if one supports the liberation of the Palestinian people, they are an anti Zionist? ridiculous! above ANY other peoples, the Israelis should recognize oppression and avoid doing it (oppression) at all costs. however they, Israelis, have created a modern day concentration camp.

Nicole Everwine Israel has tried so many different times- to make Peace -- The "Palestinian Authority;" has rejected it- every time!! The Palestinians and the Israelis have lived comfortably together; for decades! Until Arafat & Abbas-- started exiting the "Palestinians!" to attack!! Please; check your facts!! Thank you!

how is the premise legitmate? does Oprah make America panic? does the CEO of Ford make america panic? Janet yellen did the opposite of causing economic panic. powerful Democrat women may make conservative politicians and voters panic but thats obvious politics. If you keep writing grabby headlines messaging society hates women, than at what point do you exaggerate and contribute to that perception?

I was glad to hear the topic of powerful women covered and I do like hearing from Ross as a same conservative voice. That helps me keep an open mind and not succumb to confirmation bias. I do think the content could be improved by limiting the use of the words "like" and "sort of." Perhaps that's a generational critique but overuse of that speaking style makes it difficult to take the speaker as seriously as she/he deserves.
