Informative and inspirational

I’ve been listening to Jonathan Capehart for almost a year now and I’m consistently impressed by how he can allow people to dig deep into their stories without himself getting in the way. He is almost transparent and yet it is clearly his efforts that allow me to get to know the amazing people he interviews. I recommend this podcast to everyone I know.

I never thought I would lend an ear or one minute of attention on a political themed podcast but here I am. I never thought I would hear a out black man host a podcast but here is Jonathan. I’m very impressed with this show and look forward to hearing more.

Cape Up is one of my regular listens. Jonathan has nice and relatable style of interviewing and I value his input and perspective. Well worth it if you seek to gain a better understanding of how politics play a role in United States culture.

Much needed voice of levity...

Rating: ★★★★★

Jonathan is wise, authentic, and most importantly, not afraid to LIVE in the critical questions of our day. Given his skills, I think he needs a few more controversial (ie, right-leaning) individuals on his show. If we are ever going to bridge this chasm between left and right, we have to start somewhere. Why not let some healing of our country include Cape Up?

Jon C. hosts a uniquely important cast. Wish he would invite more women to the show, they would have to be amazing as are all his guests! Listen and learn! Thanks for everything, Jon!

Mr Capehart, prepares extensively for each and every interview. I love how he reads everything his interviewees have written and reviews all their public talks. He asks the significant questions, engages difficult subjects, listens deeply, and has a delightful sense of humor. I look forward to every episode, because I learn so much‼️

So glad someone turned me onto this podcast. Great questions, guests are given plenty of time to respond. How refreshing to (over)hear conversations that breathe and a host that truly listens.

Don’t let yourself fall into the trap

Of picking and choosing episodes based on the guest. If you listen you’ll find the host has an ability to make every guest interesting. J. Capehart asks open honest questions out of what seems to be genuine curiosity. This can’t help but lead to an authentic interesting conversation.

Fast speaking professor

I enjoy this podcast except when a professor talks so fast it sounds like he’s on something. Really annoying so that I couldn’t finish listening.

I can't wait for Tuesdays for my weekly dose of sanity and hope from Jonathan Capehart. He and his guests are keeping me going in this era of ugliness. Thank you Jonathan, and continue doing your important work--you are a lifeline for those of us reading the news who would despair.

I really enjoy Jonathan Capeheart’s work, and this podcast (along with the excellent conversations he has with his guests) adds to his repertoire of great work. His interviews are always insightful and I enjoy listening to the perspectives presented. His recent conversation with Mark Hamill is a Star War fan’s delight!

The interview with John Lewis where he talks about the Parkland kids as being 'touched by the spirit of history' as he himself was as a young person moved me to tears this morning.

I’ve watched Jonathan grow as a journalist guest on MSNBC for about a decade, and I appreciate this podcast format where he shines bright in longer one-on-one conversations. The episodes provide new insights into different perspectives and experiences. Great guests too!

Jonathan Capehart has the most interesting and compelling guests that he engages in the most thought provoking and fun way. On his show, there will be some familiar names but you’ll be introduced to fascinating people you’ve never heard before. That’s why this is the best podcast.

Insightful and Relevant

by Rawls30 on Dec 12, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

Hi. I really enjoy the Podcast. It’s always positive, insightful, and relevant. Capehart is able to offer his perspective while also getting his guest to reveal something which the listener may already be aware of in a broad context but not in specific detail. The segment length is perfect.

Great work Jonathan

Mr. Capehart is a terrific host and interviewer, and his guests touch on the most important topics of the day. This podcast is always worth hearing. In this terribly troubled time, I am so grateful for Mr. Capehart's intelligent wit and soothing style, a voice of sanity in the political storm.

What a steaming pile!

by (((why))) on Nov 15, 2017
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

Donna B is self-aggrandizement embodied, and Capehart is her enabler. Fawning “interview”. Why not ask why she didn’t think of choosing Bernie to replace Hillary?Why no mention of Seth Rich ( the Russians had zero motive to kill him)?She strikes me as a horrible person, a liar, a cheat - when she had the power to do something, she did nothing.

I ALWAYS listen to this

Jonathan Capeheart is a wonderful interviewer and many of his interviews are extremely important -- such as the recent one with Joan Wilson. (I then bought the book). I highly recommend this podcast to anyone wanting to get a broad view of current issues. He doesn't so much focus on "the news of the day" as on larger situations. Very informative!

So mindblowing

by therealtiffsterr on Oct 26, 2017

Jonathan hosts really thoughtful interviews with some incredible thought leaders. A year after Trump's election to the WH I am still in mourning and angry with close family members who enthusiastically support him but the "poisonous dynamic" podcast really gave me a new understanding about why white people are so angry they would elect a man to burn down our institutions.

Another dynamite interview, Capehart!

I've been guiltily listening to this fine podcast for some time without reviewing it. After hearing the recent interviews with Cecile Richards, director of Planned Parenthood, and Valerie Jarrett, I had to pay this debt of honor. The interview with R. Eric Thomas was a delight. Good work, Mr. Capehart!
