A five-time Emmy winning SNL comedy writer/producer, joins a four-time #1 NYT bestselling author, a three-time highest-rated national progressive radio host, a two-time Grammy winning artist, and a former US Senator. So, it gets a little crowded in the booth when Al talks public policy and sometimes political comedy with notable guests. Think “The Daily” without the resources of the NYTimes.

oh man, I wish you were still in the Senate. We sure need your voice—smart, educated, dedicated, funny—now more than ever. Any chance you would run for Fed office again? House? Senate? A pox on Gillibrand, who ain’t goin’ nowhere from her current position.

More Please

Great podcast. Serious topics with a knowledgeable person that keeps me laughing. We all need this right now. Thanks Al and keep doing podcasts...you make me nervous when you say “maybe” you’ll do another.

A Very Important Podcast for All Americans

Terrific new podcast. Great guests and honest, fascinating discussions. Andy Slavitt and healthcare debate was as good a podcast as I’ve ever heard. Please keep it up Al and increase the frequency. The “ insider” knowledge from your time in the Senate is a unique perspective from which all Americans can gain important understanding.
Al, please reconsider running for Senate again or President in 2024!
