We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Bird Dog turned me on to the Dilbert creator's daily podcasts. Now, I am addicted. Nobody on TV is as smart as him, he cuts to the core while being friendly, non-partisan, and with a rare degree of clarity. There is no way not to like the guy.
He has been in some pain this week as his 18 year-old stepson died of a drug overdose last week. Still, he carries on.
He admires Trump not because he likes him at all, but he enjoys persuasiveness and effectiveness. I enjoyed his argument this week that all registered Democrats should throw away their guns.
Podcasts are great for the car or taking a walk. Maybe for working around the house. Sitting at the computer or at a desk, not so much.

I'm hooked. His talent for analysis is excellent. I was reading his blog before the election (he predicted a Trump win) and can see why he switched to doing periscopes because he likes to engage with people. Since I cut cable about five years ago I missed having a morning show to watch and Adams has been a great replacement.
