Better Left is a podcast about progressive people, with some politics sprinkled in. As a group, we live our progressive principles every day, but we know we can do better. Both as hosts of a podcast, but also as part of a greater movement that at its heart promises to bring prosperity and opportunity to everyone in the US. As a nation, we're coming to terms with what the word progressive even means. As a group of millions loosely assembled around a set of universal principles, the progressive left sure can get it wrong. Real wrong.
That's why we are talking. The Better Left hosts are working-class stiffs, labor union lovers, candidates for public office, hip-hop artists, Presidential campaign staff, campaign managers, attorneys, political strategists, teachers, philosophy nerds, video game professionals, passionate political activists, and really close friends. Sarah and Jay Smith, Troy Hewitt, Cassidy 'Corn' Butler, Atom Even Engel, and Ash León.
Wanna talk about it on the podcast? Maybe you want us to consider a different kind of guest, or to explore an idea from an entirely different point of view? Whatever you need, I'm sure we got it. Just send your thoughts to hello@betterleft.net, where your concerns and complaints are welcome, just leave our moms out of it.

I like the sounds emitting from your heads

I have enjoyed nearly every episode! Is it true that one of your hosts is very, very smart and so incredibly funny? Because I think so, if my ears can be believed. Make some merch!

Awesome content!

Listened to your most recent episode highlighting our frontline heroes. Many of my friends and family are in the healthcare industry, so we really appreciate the support and message to the public. I agree that hopefully after all this has passed, we as a country will have learned from where we failed, and better prepare/position ourselves when the next big catastrophe happens again.
