Professional Left Podcast Has Made Me Close to an Idiot

Since early adulthood I have lived by the axiom ‘if you agree with 100% of another person’s political opinions, you’re an idiot’. No person capable of independent thought agrees 100% with another on subjects such as politics, religious doctrine, gender roles in a free society, or how to make the perfect fried egg breakfast sandwich. But when it comes to The Professional Left podcast with Driftglass and Bluegal, I’m pretty darn close to an idiot.

The show is basically a lovable pair of soulmates discussing current events, how they relate to the political climate, expressing their opinions, and most importantly explaining how they have arrived at those opinions. They also critique the motives of nationally known political pundits (helpful hint: don’t pick ‘David Brooks’ as the cue to take a shot if you’re playing a drinking game - someone will die of alcohol poisoning) and the mainstream corporate media that supports them. They do all of this with humor and somehow create a degree of intimacy with the listener that makes listening more like listening to a couple of good friends talking as you sit drinking with them in your living room.

Driftglass is like that high school teacher who loves discussing science fiction books and old episodes of ‘Star Trek’ and whose occasional pearls of wisdom he dropped remain every bit as relevant and profound to you now that you’re an adult. Bluegal is like that sweet, thoughtful mother of a grade-school friend who you wished your own mom was more like. But I warn you - when Bluegal chokes up discussing certain issues, you will find yourself choking up along with her, and when the podcast ends you’ll feel compelled to call your own mother just to see how she’s doing.

The hosts also share stories about their family, their kids, cats (internet kitties) and daily lives. And they feature a picture and bio of an ‘internet kitty of the week’ which they post to their website and Facebook page. It’s actually ‘pet(s) of the week’, as they feature all sorts of different animals that get sent in by listeners, even sheep. Driftglass and Bluegal have been turning out a podcast every week come hell or flooded basement for a decade and I’ve been listening for the past seven years. Like many, I don’t know what I’ll do with an hour on Friday evenings or Saturday afternoons if they ever stop.

Best political podcast available

Driftglass and Bluegal are a lovable couple offering an educated take on the state of politics. No sponsors to color the debate, just ripping people to shreds for lying to the American people. I listen every week and look forward to Fridays when the new episode drops like my friends do for Game of Thrones. Check it out, then sit back and smile.
