Welcome to the Official Blog of PoliTalk – The Weekly Political Podcast.

Two life-long pals with political experience and observation offer up an irreverent, honest view of politics and policy. Think of this podcast as the Car Talk of politics. We think our show most closely represents what happens when two friends sit at a bar and talk about politics, and therefore life.

Blog Etiquette

We encourage you to come to our blog often and read, share and comment on anything here.

We encourage robust political debate, but unlike many other sites, we believe in civil discourse so please follow some basic rules:

  1. No SPAM or the ever popular Viagra ads… not that there is anything wrong with Viagra
  2. No vulgar language (yes, it is subjective, but we will decide… it’s our blog)
  3. No personal attacks on people that post or comment… attack their argument or premise, not their intentions or character
  4. Opinions and facts are welcome… try to be clear on which is which
  5. If you are going to make an outlandish statement… back it up so you have credibility

These rules of etiquette are subject to change at anytime, but you get the idea. If you have commented and it does not make it to the blog, it is probably because you broke a rule so try re-writing with the above in mind.

Thanks for visiting!

    Gentlemen: Thought you’d be interested in the quick note I fired off today to WTKK.

    To Whom it May Concern:

    I have been listening to WTKK since 2001 and have always appreciated the points of view of your on air personalities, even when I disagree with them. I believe that WTKK is radio for thinking people. Although I have always enjoyed his show and appreciated his point of view, I agree with WTKK’s decision to suspend Jay Severin. It is unfortunate that Jay has left the field of reasoned debate and rhetoric. What I am really disappointed in, however, is the constantly changing series of hosts who have been filling in for him. I listen to WTKK mostly during drive time, in the morning and during the drive home. However, none of the substitutes for Jay have held my attention long enough to get me out of the parking lot. I have instead begun listening to the Politalk weekly podcast which can be found at http://www.politalkblog.wordpress.com. One of the hosts is from MA and one is from CT, and they provide interesting, educated, and reasoned insights into the larger political issues that affect all of us. I encourage you to give Jeff and Glenn a listen and I hope that you might find a way to give them a chance to fill in for Jay for however long he remains off the air. I can assure you that they would offer consistent, thoughtful commentaries and debates on the most important issues of our time.

    Go. Listen. Give them a shot.

    Thank you for your consideration.

    Sincerely,

    Maureen A. Williams

    Hello.

    I have listened to a couple of your podcast shows and like them very much. I am from Canada, and was wondering if you every need a “Canadian Correspondent” , especially with the Health care debate blowing up down there, I would be happy to help.
