Episode 6: Clinton's sticky email problem, the struggle between Republican candidates and the Republican Congress, and Ben Carson's stance on prisons - — Kristin, Shane and Alex regroup this week to discuss the Hillary Clinton email scandal sweeping the news, which key donors Republicans are fighting to win over- while Jeb Bush has already started to turn away money- and how this Congress is making life difficult for Republicans with eyes on the White House.

Episode 5: The CPAC Episode — It's CPAC week and Kristin and Shane are joined by guest host Alex Roarty, The Hotline's chief political correspondent, to discuss the significance of the conference, Jeb Bush's place in the crowd, and Rand Paul's increasing isolation from his own party.

Episode 3: Walker's dodge, Bush's hiring mistake, and Paul's foreign policy problem — This week, Kristin Roberts, Shane Goldmacher and Tim Alberta discuss Scott Walker's evolution slip, Jeb Bush's not-so-tech-savvy hiring mistake, Hillary Clinton and the wait for her campaign launch, whether there is any meaning at all in having a convention in Philadelphia, and Rand Paul's foreign policy hesitations.
