This should be called "NY liberal learns there is a country out there" The episode about not understanding comedy kills me.

This podcast is very well done. It is informative, discussing varied and nuanced topics from the a strange legal loophole, to a woman who was born the year of the voting rights act. It is informative and entertaining. The Host and guests are funny, while still taking the subject seriously.
