Favorite of the Crooken Media podcasts

I started with Pod Save America and added various other Crooked Media podcasts. I find that this is the one I am most excited to listen to. Jon Lovett and his guest panels are hilarious! The format is great for covering the news of the day in a nice liberal echo-bubble way, but also poking fun at itself and of course the Fox News / Republican / Trumpy craziness. It isn't all fun and games though, as Jon or one of his guest invariably is able to launch into a rant about something serious and deep and meaningful, e.g. border issues, racism, social justice. I don't always know all the references since I'm not active in the Twitter-verse, but I think it helps me keep up with some of that stuff. Nothing against Pod Save America, which I also love, but this podcast makes me laugh, which is a much needed thing in the current environment.

A Knockout.

I love this podcast- I can’t wait for it to be released each week. Jon Lovett is a national treasure: he is hilarious, brilliant, and the spokesperson this nation deserves. You need this podcast in your life!

Stop Thanking Nancy Pelosi

She is not a strong leader or a good legislator. She caves to the Republicans too frequently and you commend her because she is a female in power? No. This is optics only feminism. She time and time again breaks other women in politics down for corporate donations. SHAME ON NANCY PELOSI AND SHAME ON YOU FOR THANKING HER.

Other than that, this podcast is funny and sort of about politics with some pop culture.
