I have been following Hightower since 1988 when I heard him at the Dem convention (I believe).. he is sharp, quick and HYSTERICAL! I love listening. I just wish they were 30x longer!! Keep up the good work.
He breaks down issues regarding the problems in America, from economic to racial. A true progressive patriot!
Listen to Jim to find out who needs support in the good fight. Plus he is a hoot!
Listen to Jim Hightower; he breaks everything down into simple pieces. If we paid attention we'd probably all be happier and more prosperous.
I really enjoy hearing what Jim has to say but I wish the episodes were longer or more frequent. I’d love to hear him go more in depth & cover more topics.
We no longer listen to live news, as a mixed family with several children of color & immigrant grandparents. Thus, I am grateful for this podcast. Jim is an American treasure.
This is such a wonderful and refreshing podcast. It is straight forward, brief and presented in a humorous manner about the destruction of the Middle Class, the end of consumer protections, environmental protections, unions & labor protections. Hightower knows what he's talking about. It is fact based and clearly identifies the hypocracy of the GOP and the Trump Administration. If you work for a living, you need to tune in to Mr. Hightower.
Been listening to Jim Hightower for a while
Terrific information, clear and concise. With the added bonus of that wry, dry, Texas humor I love. Molly Ivins would no doubt listen to this podcast!
Great progressive view point with a cute Texas accent.

5/5

Thanks for the fun, informative down-to-earth commentary. This podcast is such a wonderful change from the mean/hateful/greedy corporate-run "media." Thanks so much.
A friend of the late Molly Ivans, Jim Hightower (how did he EVER get to be the state's Agriculture Commissioner?) verbalizes the things we remaining lefties think all the time, except HE makes it funny! Viva!
Nice quick-fire thoughts to break up a long-play playlist. Good thought bites to nibble on and share.
Jim's broadcasts are sharp, bottom-line, and humorously informative.

Great to listen to. Informative and funny. Though short.
Jim is right on. I love his opinion. I just wish he had longer podcasts.
Nobody, but nobody, in Congress has as much common sense as Jim Hightower. The man should be President. His commentaries are to the point common sense well worth listening to.
Jim Hightower is one of the best progressive wits out there. He always has important information laced with the greatest humor. I love to hear the latest potlitical happenings explained in his wonderful Texas drawl. I am delighted to find his daily commentary in podcast form, because I often miss his tidbits on the radio. Yee haw! With Jim around I can always find a pony the $#!+ pile.
Jim Hightower is truly a Texas original and knows how to push a populist, progressive message. He sometimes gives the Democrats more slack than they deserve, but his critique of right-wing policies that hurt ordinary working Americans is spot on. Jim says he was inspired by his nominally conservative dad who used to say simply that "everybody does better when everybody does better", as opposed to orthodox "trickle down" economic views. Jim is able to speak to conservatives without speaking down to them, makes appeals to Americans that we can do better as a nation and as a people. Jim encourages listeners to get active and always provides tools in the form of websites and phone numbers at the end of each broadcast. He and the late Molly Ivins are the best contributions Texas has ever made to the national political discussion.
Jim tells it like it is with Texas wit and drawl. A great podcast for the news stories that the "LAME-stream media" doesn't report on. Proves just because you are from Texas, doesn't mean you have to be some Republican tool. Jim is the BEST! I love this podcast.
I make it a point to listen to Jim Hightower every morning on my local NPR radio station. I find his commentaries offer a fresh perspective on the activities of our current administration, most of which are deplorable. Thank God for the humorous spin he puts on his commentary!
