I just discovered there's a FanFare for the Crooked pods! The live ep of PSA was really good, Stockton Mayor Tubbs is so inspiring. I really hope his universal basic income experiment succeeds.-

I loved the Jared/Ivanka prison scene. Lovett's Jared voice is exactly how I imagine Jared sounds too.

I'm still listening to Majority 54, and 80% of the podcast isn't about countering right-wing talking points. It's mostly just an interview with an interesting person, and then Kander spends the last 10 minutes with the counter talking point guidance.
