Just because I was slacking off this week and nowhere to be found doesn't mean you should be denied the pleasure of hearing Wednesday's Political Junkie segment on NPR's Talk of the Nation or yesterday's episode of the "It's All Politics" podcast.
Click here for the TOTN segment, which focused on the upcoming Senate contests in Florida and Arkansas.
And right below is the audio for this week's podcast.
And thanks again for Don Gonyea and Mara Liasson coming to the rescue on Talk and Andrea Seabrook on the podcast.
And I'll never be sick again, I promise.
