Love This, All the Way from Canada

This podcast makes me feel so good. It marries my humanity and political mindset so well. Between Pod Save America and Pod Save the People, have learned so many things and been inspired to run for office to make a change instead of waiting for someone else to do it. Thanks Deray, Brittney, Sam and Clint iiiiiiiii. Lol

There is hope for the future - and it’s on Pod Save The People!

I get so much out of listening to your insightful overlooked news stories, social & political commentary, and interviews. Some mainstream media outlets definitely spark fear (which leads to bias and hate); your podcast is like a shining beacon of hope. Your focus is on the positive change that is happening - right now. And I am so grateful for the amazing work you are doing. Thank you from a Canadian neighbour (and fan!)
