How is Majority54? I'm interested but don't know if I want to add another political podcast to my lineup.

Majority 54 has the same sound issues as the other pods, the most recent one featured an interview done in a diner so you hear tons of background noise which is distracting.

That said, I like it so far. I think the first episode might be a better one to try because the interview was smoother. Sound issues aside, it felt like Kander didn't clear what Twombly could and could not talk about regarding her CIA work so there were some questions that didn't go anywhere. However, if you're interested in spy stuff you might want to give that 2nd episode a listen anyway as it was interesting what she could talk about.
