The gang at fivethirtyeight talking about current political news
Jun 28, 2017 by CCPod

What a lovely bunch. This podcast is an entertaining discussion of current political news with a focus on polling and data. Nate Silver provides excellent insights and is backed up by an excellent cast of really smart analysts.

These people know their stuff.
Jun 28, 2017 by NH Grace

This is a pretty nerdy podcast for people who really dig data and in-depth analysis. That's me.

Excellent analysis, especially for data geeks. The Party Time series is also good.
Jun 28, 2017 by Mimi G

Funny, smart, in-depth. Nate Silver was closest to calling Trump's win than any other poll analysts. The Party Time series, four podcasts looking different wings of the Rs and Ds is a good listen -- well, the final one anyway. But I liked it enough to go back and listen to more.
