I'm giving it 5 stars because the 1 star reviews, based entirely on ideological bias, deserve (in my opinion) a counter-weight. While Brian and the Judge may be consistently conservative, they disagree with Bush and the majority of elected Republicans on issues (usually being more conservative than Bush or the elected Republicans they disagree with, on issues like immigration, specifically, but others as well). But they are thoughtful pundits who are clearly aligned on the right side of the aisle, and while they won't convince any True Believers at the Church of the Mighty Leftist to abandon their faith, it's a good show for the target audience, the podcast is just the right length, and its reasonably entertaining if you aren't a dedicated liberal idealogue. Perhaps its just me, but it seems like some of the critics of the smattering of conservative podcasts that are out there object to the idea that pro-America, anti-illegal-immigration, anti-tax, small-government, pro-family-values, pro-achievement people are allowed to have a voice in the New Media. Or any media. It seems to me, in a open forum, ideas win out. That's why I would never think of going in and sniping and one-starring the dozens upon dozens of NPR podcasts (I subscribe to many of them), or the dozens of liberal-activism podcasts on everything from the environment to political conspiracies, or the hundreds of podcasts on all sorts of subjects that are populated almost exclusively by various shades of liberals, leftists, socialists, and left-leaning libertarians. Free and open competition in the arena of ideas is what it's all about, baby! And Brian & The Judge is a podcast on a political category that is under-represented, as of this writing, by almost any metric you might choose to measure in the world of podcasting. I suggest we celebrate the diversity of ideas we can expose ourselves to in this modern podcasting age, and . . . 5 stars for Brian & The Judge. That is all.
