The NPR Politics team returns with a quick take about a word that seems to be on everyone's mind, both Democrats and Republicans alike: establishment. The team discusses what the establishment really means and why people are so reluctant to say they are a part of it.

The team also talks debates, the contests coming up this week, and Madonna (yes, really).

On the podcast:

  • Campaign Reporter Sam Sanders
  • Digital Political Reporter Danielle Kurtzleben
  • Editor and Correspondent Ron Elving
