Podcast for America is your inside look at the bizarre strategy of the latest presidential campaign cycle. Your hosts are Annie Lowrey of New York magazine and Mark Leibovich, national correspondent for New York Times Magazine. This week, they’re joined by Mike Pesca, host of Slate’s The Gist.

This week, Democrats are debating, but is anyone really paying attention? And given the probability of Hillary Clinton being the Democratic nominee, who does she not want to run against?

Then, we spare a moment to remember the candidacy of Lindsey Graham and contemplate what his dropping out of the GOP race means for the existence of moderate Republicanism.

And finally, we examine Ted Cruz’s interesting strategy toward Donald Trump: flattery and friendliness.
