A weekly politics and religion podcast hosted by Nish Weiseth (Cosmopolitan, The BBC, Deseret News) and Amy Sullivan (TIME Magazine, Yahoo News, NYTimes).
It's called Impolite Company because the rules of etiquette say that you're not supposed to talk about either politics or religion in polite company - presumably because those two topics can get people a little riled.
But, if this is where being polite has gotten us, it's clearly not working.

I love this show.

It is refreshing. I know a topic is going to be GREAT when it begins with a “sigh” from one or both of the hosts. They speak my language and I think they will speak to you too. Keep it up!

Wondering will this podcast continue with new episodes?

Great source of information and commentary

I listen to a lot of political podcasts who are dopes when it comes to understanding religious beliefs, communities, and context or who just skip over important news that’s related to religion. This is such a refreshing chayotes pace! It isn’t aggressively Christian, I’m an atheist and I find nothing objectionable (but used to be Catholic and then Presbyterian) but is rather well informed.

Progressive Christian women+politics

As a “de-vangelical,” this podcast is the only vaguely religious one I can bear listening to. The hosts know what it’s like to be a woman from a church background and to grapple with the exasperation of today’s politics from that framework. There are interesting interviews, too. If you feel like Rachel Held Evans’ death left a void in the world, you will probably relate to this podcast.
