The National Podcast, Episode 6: Lies, Damn Lies, and Michigan Primary Polling

Get hyped, not just for the impending end of the nomination season, not just for the Warriors’ frenzied assault on 72-10, not just for Bernie’s upset primary victory, BUT FOR THE RETURN OF GAME OF THRONES TOO!!!

In episode 6 of The National Podcast, Jon and Stephen discuss the rise of Donald Trump (and Jon’s article regarding the GOP’s ensuing attempt to counter that with facts), Hillary Clinton’s hypothetical general election plan of attack (11:00), Bernie Sanders’ upset win in Michigan (14:30), the uber-hype return of HBO’s Game of Thrones (27:30), how goddamn fun the Golden State Warriors are to watch (44:30), the Internet’s long, unforgiving memory, especially when it comes to Chris Christie (50:30), and NFL free agency (57:15).

It’s pretty great, despite (or in spite of) Jon and Stephen repeatedly falling on the floor to pump out clap pushups because they were just so stoked for Season 6 of Game of Thrones.

As always you can listen in on Soundcloud, iTunes, or Stitcher, send any questions you’d like to see answered on the next episode to editors@nationalave.com, and be sure and let us know what you think so far — by far the coolest part of the pod so far has been hearing everybody’s responses to it.

Thanks for listening!
