love the point on the podcast about the writers not presenting Keane as “good or bad.” want to add that I think their decision to not specify her PARTY affiliation is directly related to that, because if they had it would have immediately polarized the audiences opinion on her, precisely because of the REAL-WORLD political polarization that she calls out in her speech.

Totally. I actually really appreciate that the show never puts any of politicians or political figures into the box of Republican or Democrat. Even though it’s easy-ish enough to interpret based on their policies. I think that might be because at its heart it’s a CIA show and people who do that work do it regardless of the party in power.
