Four former aides to President Obama—Jon Favreau, Jon Lovett, Dan Pfeiffer and Tommy Vietor—are joined by journalists, politicians, activists, and more for a no-b******t conversation about politics. They cut through the noise to break down the week’s news, and help people figure out what matters and how they can help. You can listen to new episodes twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
“51 and Done.”
Democrats will have 51 Senate seats after Raphael Warnock wins the final election of the 2022 midterms, Donald Trump racks up more losses and legal troubles, and Strict Scrutiny’s Kate Shaw joins to break down two major cases heard by the Supreme Court this week on gay rights and democracy.
"Dicks Seek Pics."
Joe Biden and the Democratic Party try to kill off Iowa and New Hampshire’s first-in-the-nation status, Donald Trump tries to kill off the Constitution over Elon Musk’s release of some rehashed Hunter Biden laptop drama, and Georgia closes out the midterms with today’s runoff between Raphael Warnock and Herschel Walker. Then, the Bulwark’s Tim Miller is back to talk about all the latest nonsense in the Republican Party.
“Cleanup on Heil 12!”
Republican leaders struggle to respond to Trump’s Nazi Dinner, Congress passes a bill to protect same-sex marriage as Washington gears up for a busy lame duck session, the GOP conducts a midterm autopsy, and White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain stops by to talk about Joe Biden’s plans for 2023.
Donald Trump gets dinner with a Nazi, a new special counsel to investigate his crimes, and his Twitter account back. Georgia Senator Raphael Warnock talks to Lovett about his runoff election on Dec 6. And the guys play a round of Take Appreciator.
Jon and Dan answer all your midterm questions + a few about Taylor Swift, reality tv, and their favorite reads.
“He’s Running (from the law)”
Donald Trump makes it official. Republicans win the House. Nancy Pelosi steps down as leader. Kari Lake loses her race for Arizona governor. And Dan talks to the Nevada Independent’s Jon Ralston about midterm results and the future.
No unexplored corners
Eschews frivolous grandstanding. Penetrates issues without total pessimism. Not afraid to be uplifting and an advocate for citizen action. Now a Pod Save America junkie. Want a T-shirt. Loved the interview with Rachel Maddow.
Full of lies.
I do not recommend this podcast unless you want your brain to be infected by lies. I’m astonished how much these guys can keep telling lies. This podcast is seriously a garbage. Please don’t waste your time.
Even the intro music is awesome
Me my husband and I and the kids dance to the intro music and my husband and I listen to your full podcast regularly. You guys are awesome. Keep up the great work.
