    Yep.  I like Sam because has brings on good guests and plays dumb a little (I mean this as a compliment) in order to give those guests the opportunity to fully explain things that he may already know but that the listener may not.

    I love Thom for one thing above all else: if you call in and say that you disagree, you go straight to the front of the line. No ducking, and he uses those moments to show people how to take those people down (while still being willing to incorporate new thinking, oddly enough).

    As far as Randi... The one and I only diary that I have written on dKos was when Air America suspended her after she made some comments off-air at an unaffiliated event. But, I haven't listened to her since she bolted for the Nova M network. I agree that she has great info and debating skills, but I find her to be too harsh with her more moderate listeners sometimes. We don't win people over like that. Still, your comments about her have made me want to seek her out and give her another listen.  :)

      I know exactly what you mean, but she has toned it down considerably. Still fierce in her way, but willing to have a conversation with someone who disagrees. She's much more patient these days and takes a lot of calls from the other side.

      Find her here.
