I would give this show five stars if Michael Brooks wasnât on it. Sam and Jamie are the best. I listen to Jamieâs podcast too.
Been listening to MR since the days of Air America Radio when Jeannine Garofalo was Samâs cohost.The show is as good as itâs always been. Sam is a good political analyst and gives a refreshing perspective to the one from the corporate mainstream media.In addition, Sam regularly books experts in various socio-political and economic topics and asks insightful questions into matters of great importance to all of us, but which get little to no attention in the mainstream media.If youâre simply looking for propaganda, then move along because you wonât find it here. Faux News is just a couple of taps away.
Long Tine listener. first Time reviewer. Smart, savvy and funny political and cultural commentary, interviews and conversation of the current state of affairs.
Donât claim to be independent if your not going to be independent. Republicans didnât brainwash their voters to vote for Trump just like democrats didnât brainwash their voters to vote for Hillary. What a joke.
probably the best and most frequent-posting progressive podcast out there with a well educated team spanning all across the left
What Dem wouldnât love these topics? However, this crew needs to cut the fluffy talk, verbal pauses & excess subjectivity. If we are all gathered around some fire pit getting high, the uhhhs, umms, diversions and excess laughter would fly. Not on a podcast. How about more informed debate rather than all the speculation & side chatter. âLess is more.â
I love the covered topics, but itâs so difficult to listen to all those âUmmâs... and ahhâs...â that interrupt the flow of his speech. Super annoying!
Seder hosted the worst Russiagate conspiracy theorists, then trolls and attacks those who call him on it,
Left wing talk radio for smart people. An opinion show often editorializing various other opinion shows both left and right to expose propaganda and foolery for what it is. No yelling no screaming just some 90th percentile people ripping stuff apart in a format that you can listen while you work. Michael Brooks really great by the way, maybe more interesting than Sam whoâs a bit long winded at times.
Sam and his crew are the best commentators when it comes to politics. They keep it light and fun but get into very specific details on policy. One of the best parts of the show is that they do not always agree but have left leanings that tie them all together. There is debate and agreement between them. You donât always feel like you are being told what to believe because you can hear them debate the points of policy between themselves.Best show a lefty could ask for!
Sam is such a wise and reassuring voice in these politically insane times. He is thoughtful and brilliant. Truly a master of debate. His integrity is evident in all he does. Tune in, you won't regret it. Left is best.
Sam is a great commentator; very knowledgeable and quick witted. He just needs to work on his vocal fry when interviewing. I cannot stand Michael or Jaime. Michael comes across as a snob, and speaks over the other hosts and guests all the time. Jaime also comes across as a snob, and is too committed to her ideology to contribute anything useful.
Sam is intelligent, knowledgeable, articulate, funny and bold. He's a fearless Progressive voice who is willing to debate anyone. His podcasts are always relevant and informative. Any Progressive minded person should know who Sam is and should add him to their list of important sources of socio-political-economic information.
Sam Seder brings us an adolescence way of digesting progressive politics. Itâs the Howard Stern of progressive political podcast. Sam Seder was a hero of the political left on air America and now has created a Fox and friends type of progressive podcast. I tune in in the hope that he will stick to honest representations of his political adversaries. Heâs way too smart to critique adversaries with mocking voices, misrepresentation and us vs them outlook. We may disagree with certain peopleâs politics, out look on life, or perception, but if the only way to expose them is by making fun of them, who exactly are you speaking to? Aside from your followers. Who do you think you can convert? By representing himself and others who appear on his show as a progressive yet act like they were trained to be on Fox, all we walk away with is another show not looking to convince the opposition of their views, but one which further divides and drives a wedge between us. Sam progressivism needs leaders not more comedians.
Getting beyond the surface in politics. Insights that are nuanced. Interviews with experts on the subject that are not just overblown pseudoe-intellectuals. And some goofball impressions.
On the money political commentary. Funny. I think itâs my most listened to podcast.
Brilliant and funny show that engages with actual policy. That alone makes it better than almost everything else out there
I love Sam his team!
I've listened for a few weeks, ending with the Halloween show, the Jimmy Dore immitation show. As an average left-of-center voter, I feel like they had a great chance to address some very real problems and complaints about the Democratic Party, and instead they used it as an opportunity to belittle anyone who might have such a complaint. These guys are admittedly "bad-faith" entertainers and aren't really trying to do any good work for the Democrats, the USA, or the world. At least Jimmy Dore is trying to help the Democratic party fix itself by pointing out the areas that make voters the most upset. Would love to hear these guys take on Sam Harris.
OMG! Brilliant satire.
He is smog, he goes for the jugular on other left perspectives and their house. Itâs shameful that what he can do behind the scenes on Twitter and his shadow to other posts from other podcasts,When he cannot debate them with backs only emotion.
Want ANOTHER liberal trying to shame you into voting for corporate war monger Democrats? This is your show
More calls from Ronald Reagan please!
I was looking for a more centrist view, instead it is a leftist propaganda Podcast. More division than consensus in this Podcast. Disappointing.
Sam and his cast of characters around him honestly put on a really incredibly insightful and hilarious show. Nothing is more entertaining than seeing them make fun of right wing media figures.
When I listenâ on days w/o Sam I can only think unpleasant people being unpleasant together.
This might be the most parasitical of the leftist podcasts, who can say? Not only does Sam beg for money on behalf of the main show, his producers solicit cash too, and for what? The pleasure of hearing them ramble on and on with their shows.These guys pretend to be concerned with people but face it, the world is going straight into the crapper full force. Thereâs not going to be any solidarity or beneficial revolution, these guys are the new form of televangelism trying to make a buck from people suffering. What have they ever done for anyone? They just joke about the news, thereâs nothing of substance here. The fact that they keep paying attention to Dennis Miller over and over proves they have nothing of value to add. Also, their friends who are recurring guests are insufferable. Avoid this show.
Good content however very broken conversations
Informative insightful interviews, and fantastic commentary!
I never miss an episode! It's smart, it's funny, and it's made me so much more politically aware and active. I discovered this podcast though YouTube while trying to find some solace during the 2016 election. Though it feels everything is terrible, Sam and Micheal have given me something to laugh.
This podcast is amazing. Well researched, great guests and the incomparable Sam Seder on the ones and twos!! Subscribe and support this Podcast!!
As a leftist, the âliberal mediaâ (aka centrist media) annoys me almost as much as the right wing media. This podcast is a great refuge for any leftist who feels the same way. Also Michael Brooks is the best
Needs more Andy Kindler.
sam is a dreamboat
The only podcast that I make an effort to listen to everyday :)
Sam is a sharp guy and used to shine with his important and in depth interviews about important political, social and economic subjects that the MSM manages to ignore or downplay. Unfortunately his sidekick is incredibly annoying and the show has been consumed with Trump Derangement Syndrome.
Deep dive on daily issues with humor and insight not easily found elsewhere. This is one of the few podcasts that have kept me sane in this horrific time.
I love Sam, but his criticisms of Jimmy Dore are unwarranted. It's not Jimmy's fault neoliberal corporatist Democrats without genuine progressive policies keep losing elections, it's Susan Sarandon's.
Sam is funny and very insightful.
