  1. Fine job. Fine show. Feldman should do a nightly newscast. Are you still on Salon? The book sounds like a good read but I’m trying to block Romney out of my mind. Too depressing. like walker.

  2. I’m jealous of all your listeners overseas. It’s so depressing here.
    Your show was interesting and funny. But it didn’t make me feel optimistic. $$$$$$$ root of all evil. But I could sure use some.

  3. Feldman needs to stop trying to be funny when he has someone like Weissman on. The subject matter is too important. Thanks for the 411 on Citizens United. And Public Citizen. Nothing wrong with being funny, but time and place.

  4. This was a great show. The sound quality on the Skype could have been better, but the guests could not have been any better. You’re knocking it out of the park these days. Great blend of facts and funny. Thanks.
