Ciquizza: The Fix Podcast

United States

Do you like game shows? Do you like politics? Whatever, you will LOVE The Ciquizza anyway. Each week the Washington Post’s Chris Cillizza will put two supposedly smart guests to the test with questions on news, politics, entertainment. The winner will be covered in glory. The loser will be subject to public shaming. For real.


The one with the two millennials  

ESPN's Clinton Yates and WaPo's Michelle Lee try to name "Saturday Night Live" presidential impersonators, puzzle over who said Trump snorts and battle over how an EZ Bake oven gets hot.

The one with two Internet reporting stars  

Washington Post’s David Fahrenthold and former NPR staff Andy Carvin engage in a battle of wits over famous political cities, celebrity endorsements and diphallic terata.

Cook Political Report's Amy Walter vs. Washington Post's Carlos Lozada
