after all these years, at last!

Thank you so much for making this show available and (at least so far) accessible even in the highly censored country I live in. This is a major contribution to life in a culturally stifled zone. Thank you so much. Thank you so much. Good quality reporting, sensible commentary, a pleasure to listen.

However, shame on Audible and msnbc for making each episode a vehicle for repetitive and quite unpleasant advertising. Audible is no place for advertising and shame on you all for inserting ads into what would otherwise be a very good podcast.

Since I posted this review, the advertisements that used to occur in the middle of the podcast have been deleted. Kudos for all parties who brought about these deletions. The podcast is much pleasanter to listen to. The analyses and insights offered by Rachel herself remain a delight. Sadly, I find I seldom can get into this podcast. Are so many people listening to it that there is insufficient computing power on the server to permit lowly listeners like me to listen? If this is happening, can Audible please allocate more computing power to this podcast?

Absolutely love listening to her, she does not hold back any punches on the current issues. From day one, she has been forthright and thoughtful with her interviews, bringing on many individuals whom were apart of/or giving their incredible expert insight. Rachel does it all with being informative to highly entertaining in all aspects.

Love Rachel Maddow

Her classic MSNBC style. Just like her shoe, but radio style. She is one of my heroines.

If you enjoy her show

Gotta love the haters' reviews! Lol! They probably never listened to the podcasts, which makes one want to listen to her more. RM is one of the sharpest and smartest minds on political and social commentaries today. There are insights and great questions posed to her guests that I've not heard asked elsewhere. Never boring.

Speaks truths as lies and lies as truths 😡👎

When the Russia investigations were going on I was pretty intrigued. RM spoke as if it were an absolute fact. Saying the president was a Russian spy, etc. She seemed pretty believable because she spoke with such conviction..Now we find out that it was actually the other side of the fence where the Russia+China collusion was/is and she is absolutely silent. Means she has no interest in reporting the truth, only reporting her strong diluted opinions. At this point I wouldn't doubt if she is a paid for foreign operative. I'm for truth no matter what side it's on. Not seeing her recant her arrogant false reporting made me realize that this is the equivalent of Chinese state-run media. She's treasonous, and Fox and the rest of them are no better these days. I never realized how corrupt the news media is until the last 4 years. This must be what it feels like to have a news organization in Venezuela, Brazil, Iraq, China etc. Rachel Maddow should be taken off of the US air, and reporting in China maybe even North Korea. Definitely one of the worst habitually lying reporters in modern history. She's an unapologetic narcissist and a pathological liar👎

Won't play episodes

Please fix! None of the new episodes will play, despite downloading them to my phone. I'm an avid listener so please fix it. Thank you.

Absolute Garbage

Nothing but lies and dishonesty. Nowhere in this so-called "journalism" is there a shred of truth. Nothing but opinions and conspiracy theory ramblings. As I said before, garbage.
