“What I love about ‘The David Feldman Show’ is I’m listening to a middle-aged guy getting radicalized, but he still can’t stop telling dick jokes with his comic friends from the ’80s.”
– Michael Brooks, The Michael Brooks Show
“I love how David gives both sides of a story: profound and anti-found.”
– Congressman Alan Grayson
“A podcast for folks who believe that strong political convictions and a sense of humor do not have to be mutually exclusive.”
– Nathan Rabin, The AV Club
