    I don't see where anyone said this. Jack (jcb) said maybe this isn't the show for them if they don't like the team discussing politics. He said nothing about whether or not OP agrees with what is being discussed.

    I certainly didn't mean that anyone who disagrees with the views expressed on the podcast shouldn't listen. I don't believe I said that. But the title of this thread was "Lose the Politics". Whatever OP meant by this, I took that as a directive for the podcast team to stop mentioning politics. That's why I made the comment that I did. I don't care if someone disagrees with my views. I have many friends and co-workers who don't. I respect their views and they respect mine. None have ever told me to "lose" my "politics."

    The disadvantage of written mediums is the lack of tone. Sorry for misunderstanding you.

    No worries. My tone is usually worse.

    ehhh Kevin going to Kathy Griffin's defense last week made me roll my eyes but overall this isn't a big thing on the show, it's an offhand comment here and there

    Politics inherently affects every aspect of one's life, whether one wants to believe that or not. I have absolutely no problem with any podcast mentioning politics (and I listen to a large variety of podcasts).

    Sometimes one has to say what one feels they need to say. We all to one extent or another use our disney interests to escape from real world. But Whether we like it or not Disney et al intersects with our country's and this world's news and trends. It shouldn't drive the podcast but when it comes up it comes up. I've never felt that any of the podcast team were pushing their individual agendas at anyone.

    The most political thing was the SeaWorld Podcast on the dreams unlimited show. I did not watch it. But to be honest, if that worries you you should not look at anything at all.

    no it was about the southern flag. Pete was out of town and the argument got pretty heated on the podcast and in the form afterwards.

    I'm not American and this doesn't bother me in the slightest. I actually appreciate hearing a little bit more about the team to be honest.

    However, if @KingLlama decides he is going to run for POTUS, I may have to try to become a citizen just so I can vote for him ;-)

    Eh, I don't think the politics are too bad on the show, but I think feedback is great and important to give people space to speak up. Please don't pile on folks for giving feedback.
    A week ago I was at a restaurant where they were offering a dessert "suicide by chocolate" advertised quite prominently. We had been at the hospital for two weeks round the clock at the bedside of a family member who had attempted suicide. We were preparing to release them from life support and I needed mental space so my BF insisted on a day trip.
    I didn't say anything because I was raw emotionally, but the cheeky, seemingly innocent promotion was VERY offensive to me.
    My example is extreme but I think open feedback is excellent, I have a low tolerance for violent images, political discussions in general right now. Chopping heads off as a joke it is NOT okay and inexcusable and understand why others need/want to shield themselves. We all take turns and I am sure I will forget eventually to be as sensitive. I hope not, but it's human.

    Edited for softer tone

    Okay I went back and listened to last week's podcast. Kevin, I believe what she did was disgusting. Period. Please don't make space or any excuse for such violence in our society. Please don't roll your eyes at me or others who point that out.
    Love and respect to you.
