A mainstay in AM 950’s “Progressive Voice of Minnesota” lineup, McNeil isn’t the kind of theoretical lefty who’s come to symbolize the Democratic Party’s unraveling.

At a time when so much political chatter makes listeners tune out and turn off, McNeil invites everyone in to hash things out together.
