Refreshingly Positive Political Podcast!
For months I've been searching for a calm, respectful podcast where I can hear differing viewpoints on current political issues. Often, I am turned off by the snarky tones of liberal hosts and the angry rants of conservatives. Finally, there is a discussion where two intelligent hosts speak respectfully and honor the facts, even when they don't match their own preconceived ideas. As a life long liberal moderate, I was wary of a female conservative, however Karen addresses each issue with openness, kindness and common sense. Unlike the popular conservative rhetoric and policy, she is not just "pro-birth" but as a adoptive mom, she is truly "pro life" and walks the walk in caring for children born into difficulty family situations. Chuck, is sometimes, as cantankerous as a Fox "friend", but shows his heart of gold by speaking up for the marginalized. Their content is informative and their banter is entertaining. I am so happy to find a podcast prove what I've believed for such a long time - that most of us agree on the important stuff, it's just the details that seem to get in the way. I hope Karen and Chuck continue their work for a long time to come and I will recommend them to all my friends - both liberal and conservative. Thanks for the courage to stand by your beliefs, while respecting the ideals of others.
