Episode 17: Better Listening Than Rand's 630-Minute Speech — Kristin and Shane are joined by Hotline Analyst Adam Wollner to discuss the politics behind Rand Paul's long, long speech against the Patriot Act. Planning for the Republican primary debates is well underway, and Fox News has set rules to limit the number of candidates allowed on stage that could dramatically affect campaign tactics.

Episode 16: “It’s Not Charming, It’s Curmudgeonly” — Episodes of TwentySixteen are also available on iTunes. Kristin, Tim, and Alex discuss Jeb Bush's messy week and Mike Huckabee's smart primary strategy. The Hillary Clinton campaign makes its first moves, hinting at its 2016 approach, and websites - and debate stages - are already running out of space for 2016 candidates.

Episode 15: Hillary Clinton's Play on Immigration — Episodes of TwentySixteen are also available on iTunes. Kristin, Shane and Scott discuss Hillary Clinton's trust deficit and her strategy to lock down the Latino vote. Meanwhile, Marco Rubio is taking a risky strategy on Iran and Republican contenders are focusing on Nevada as a momentum-building state.

Episode 14: A Liberal-Libertarian Moment — Kristin, Tim and Scott discuss the thin Democratic field and the next set of second-tier Republican contenders set to enter the race. Meanwhile, riots in Baltimore this week have presidential hopefuls voicing positions on crime and the police force, demonstrating just how much opinions on criminal justice have changed on both the Republican and Democratic sides.

Episode 13: More Money, More Problems — The hosts reunite this week to discuss allegations that the Clinton Foundation accepted millions from foreign donors, money which was never disclosed to the White House. Meanwhile Chris Christie and Jeb Bush are rolling the dice on Social Security as Republican super-donors start drafting their shortlists.

Episode 12: Rubio's Underdog Strategy — Kristin and Tim are joined by Scott Bland, Editor-in-Chief of National Journal Hotline, to talk about Hillary Clinton's doomed bid to start small, Marco Rubio's smart money strategy, and the far-right's plan to beat the establishment candidate. The hosts also discuss how candidates are dividing their best strategic minds between their campaigns and the Super PACs.

Episode 9: First Out of the Gate — Ted Cruz announced his candidacy this week and the hosts assess what this means for the rest of the Republican field. Will Jeb Bush have an edge as Cruz drags the field to the right? And what about that new Florida primary date -- is it an advantage or a terrible gamble for the Bush camp?

TwentySixteen -

Episode 8: The March Madness Episode — In this episode, Kristin, Tim and Shane debate Scott Walker's loose commitment to his positions and his staff, which contenders are hiring the best people and Chris Christie's dismal numbers. Plus, as the NCAA tournament gets underway, Tim and Shane dissect candidates' brackets with the help of special guest Josh Kraushaar.

Episode 7: Email Fallout: Do Democrats have another option? — Hillary Clinton hosted a lousy press conference this week to explain her deletion of over 30,000 emails from the account she used while working as secretary of State. Kristin, Shane and Tim regroup to discuss how the controversy affects Democrats' 2016 calculations.
