Best Radio Talk Show Houston 2010 - Partisan Gridlock, KPFT

As everyone knows — because we've been told so over and over — talk radio from the left side of the political spectrum is boring, earnest and dull. Unless you listen to Partisan Gridlock on KPFT-FM Friday afternoons from 3-4. Host Geoffrey Berg, an attorney, is funny and sharp; he gets good guests (from the right as well as left) and doesn't let them off the hook (again, whether they're from the right or left). Entertaining talk radio from a progressive view? Sure, Air America died, but its spirit burns on here in Houston.

Geoff is against the student's efforts to fight crime by giving away shotguns.  He says that what are these people going to say when the wrong person get hold of these guns and a child is killed by an accidental discharge or a suicide.  Amazing how the very same thing can be said about giving a person a car.  How is the giver going to feel when the person that got the car gets drunk and kills someone else or even themselves.  Personally, I do believe that there are some people that should  not have a gun but it's still their right to have one as long as they've committed no crimes.  Everyone has the right to defend themselves and their family.  Along with this right comes responsibility as well.  It's the responsibility of those receiving the guns to make sure they are used and stored safely.

Geof- you give half truths on TV such as on the Fox new debate tonight. A least talk about how the start Treaty with truth. You did not comment on how the republican had additions added that handled Senator Kyl and McCain’s concerns about the treaty potentially impeding our missile defense systems. This is a good thing. Remember the word Liberal and Liar starts with the same first letter. I will not listen to you because you are nothing but a half truth salesman. To say Republicans did not support the health care for 9-11 responders is BS on your part. They did or it would not have gotten passed. Do you know you need 60 votes to pass it. But the gal of Shumer and the lady from NY to put a bill forth with structured to not have debate on it is partisan BS. This lame duck session has no shame and some republicans need to be challenged in the primaries. When are people on your side of the isle going to understand this president has been a failure from the get-go because he has not concentrated on Jobs . He has wasted 2 yrs. The American people understand the stimulus bill he passed in Feb 2009 was not a stimulus. It was a democratic voter’s retention bill. Biden was talking about shovel ready jobs. Obama then comes out 1.5 years later and says it talks time. Gitmo is still open because of Obama’s lack of knowledge about the entire situation. He is over his head. That’s the sort of lies we the public will remember. Obama has only concentrated on himself and his history. This President is the most narcissistic person ever. It all all about Obama and not about the people of the US. The GOP guy you debated was not up to speed to say the least.

Good point Will. I heard Geoff one time interviewing a minister and grilling him about Christianity- basically implying how ubsurd it is. I emailed him and asked him to have the same debate with leaders of other religions, but of course nothing. It's easy to pick apart Christianity to make him look intelligent, but I'd love to hear him debate Brother Muhammed about Islam- but he's too much of a sissy for that. Too bad

I sure don't know where the hell Berg comes off calling conservatives "sissies" to Sen. Dan Patrick but I'd like to see him call me that to my face. I'd certainly show him who sissy is.I'm 64, conservative, a Vietnam Vet and all man.The Dems are so just so damn scared of being thrown out of office they will stoop to whatever name calling or personal atttacks to try and justify their crappy position of doing their best to ruin this country and everything it stands for.Give me a call Berg and let's settle this man to sissy!

Nuri,

The fact that you call this show "smart" is in itself "dumb".

geoff berg is just a very self center person. only cares for what he thinks is correct. its tea party, not tea bagers. and where did the poll come from that he used on his show today come from? the 62% rep think acorn stole the election. of the 18 reps that i work with, none care about acorn. just try to put something like this on his facebook page, he will block you.

He's is a smart pissed-off leftie. Congrats, Geoff. I may be naive, but, @ least, I can spell it. If he only has 200 listeners, no one else must've voted--eh?

This is one of the best talk shows on Houston airwaves, engaging, smart, and full of facts. For anyone to suggest that it is "uninformed and naive" is in itself "uniformed and naive"..! Congratulations Geoff.

There's a reason he does his show for free for only a couple of hundred listeners...because listening to him whine about tea baggers and Sarah Palin makes for boring radio. I'm surprised he got recognized for such a lame show.

@Patrick_josiah One off duty policewoman did take her firearm to church one day and was credited in saving countless lives when a crazy man with an AK47 burst into the church and started firing.  She shot him and stopped the assault.  Haven't you made the corelation between "Gun Free Zones" and the places that these types of mass shootings happen yet????  These people doing this sort of thing may be crazy but they ain't stupid.  They want to go where they'll be safe while they shoot up unarmed people.  Duhhhhh!!!!!

The show is a joke if you've got half a brain. The host is an idiotic progressive that is disconnected from reality. His only defense is the everyone is a "racist". Very compelling....
