Pod Save America bills itself as a “no-bullsh*t conversation about politics” and is hosted by four former Obama aides: Jon Favreau, Jon Lovett, Dan Pfeiffer, and Tommy Vietor. It’s one of many politics-related series under the umbrella of the hosts’ political media company, Crooked Media. Other popular political podcasts from Crooked include Pod Save the World, which focuses on foreign policy, and The Wilderness, which is mentioned below.
“I’ve always been into politics but these guys help me stay informed while also making me laugh,” one listener wrote in a review on Apple Podcasts. “I genuinely enjoy listening to their takes on what’s going on and find their content extremely streamlined.”
For Pod Save America, you can expect new, hour-long episodes to come out every Monday and Thursday, with special exception episodes coming out for relevant events like the Iowa caucuses, the midterms, and, of course, the 2020 presidential election results. You can also expect regular appearances by journalists, politicians, world leaders, and more.
After what likely has felt like a decade of slow building, the race for the next presidential election is finally here. With the general election taking place in less than a week, now is the time to stock up your knowledge arsenal with podcasts to help you follow the 2020 election.
