Funny and insightful, and generally lives up to its billing of allowing conservative voices to speak “in the lion’s den”. That said, post-Trump Maher is a little irrational, and a little less willing to listen to those conservative voices, so IMO the quality of the show declined in 2017. But still, I look forward to it every week, and I’m not sure there’s a person alive with whom I agree on more issues, especially the ones he takes the left to task on. In particular, much more than most left-leaning pundits, he’s willing to prioritize issues (yes, it’s true, climate change and the threat of nuclear armageddon are in fact more important than transgender bathroom access or whether Ann Coulter is offending someone today).
I personally like the “Overtime” portion of the show even better than the show itself, and I’m glad they found a way to work that into the podcast.
