Do you recommend watching the series first or listening to the podcast first?

We think you should watch the West Wing episode first listen to this podcast’s corresponding episode.

Are there going to be spoilers for first-time audiences?

We’re focusing only on the episode in front of us and will try to make sure no spoilers come out in the discussion. Nota bene: That means if there’s a scene or moment which will be referenced or expanded upon or contradicted in a future episode, we’ll await the subsequent episode to comment on it.


Are you worried about spoilers at this time, all these years after the show aired? I have seen every episode ten times! Well, our hope is to appeal to both viewers and fans that are old. Additionally, if we tried to connect every cross-reference through the show, citing things from episodes we have discussed, every podcast episode would be a wreck and would probably take too long to make.
