Are you tired of the same old voices saying the same old thing? No way! So. Are. We.
And it's why Raw Story partner Mike Rogers in Washington, DC and radio host Shannyn Moore in Little Tutka Bay, Alaska have teamed up to create The Raw Story Podcast. We're different, why? Because we're tired of the same old stories. It's time to look at the news from fresh perspectives... with a dash (OK, a truckload) of humor.
Each week, we bring you interesting political chat, national media experts, political leaders, and -- most important -- the people behind the stories. And you'll hear from the Pulitzer Prize winning team at Raw Story.
With over 15 million monthly visitors and 1.5 million social media followers, Raw Story is the nation's largest independently owned, progressive news site. Now, more than more than ever, we are ready to harness the power of the web to bring you the important discussions of the day.

Where in the world is Shannyn?
Shannyn has headed outside. And by outside we mean she's left Alaska to come to the contiguous state. Travel won't stop her from meeting up with Mike and talking about the latest in progressive news. AND, we chat about King George III's long range plan to take over America... and we mean loooooong range.
The Exclusive Behind the Exclusive
Shannyn and Mike welcome independent journalist Daniel Newhauser. Writing for Raw Story, Daniel uncovered South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem's use of the state's plane to attend political events. We chat with Daniel about the story, but also about the story behind the story. How does investigative reporting work? How are the dots connected? It's an interesting look at how the stories you read come to be.
Biden is President and breaking news is the information coming from the Trump impeachment trial (Round 2). We talk about the latest about Lin Wood, the attorney even team Trump thought was too crazy to be a part of their lies. With the insurrection attempt foiled and the impeachment underway, we also chat about President Biden (nice ring to it, eh?), a plan to really save the USPS, and the division of Jeff Bezos' billions.
Reality vs. Sanity: Ben Jealous of People For the American Way
Godwin's law tells us that the longer an online discussion goes on, the chance of someone invoking the Nazis is almost guaranteed. But what happens when it's true? Mike and Shannyn talk to People for the American Way president and civil rights leader Ben Jealous about the tactics used by those trying to manipulate and use vulnerable citizens to keep power. We also have our weekly dose of political chat covering everything from Matt Gaetz v. Liz Cheney and Marjorie Taylor Greene v. Sanity.
Treasonists, Seditionists & Insurrectionists... Oh, my!
Just when you thought things might be getting back to normal -- Hedge funds are blown up by day traders, members of Congress are meeting with seditionists, and the poison that is Donald Trump continues to infect the nation. Mike and Shannyn speak to Democratic Coalition co-founder and president Scott Dworkin about the organization's work in exposing behind the scenes stories necessary to maintain a democracy.
Wow, we're in charge... or are we?
Shannyn and Mike talk about breaking news under the new Biden administration. We'll talk about President Biden's press conference and at what exact moment we realized adults were in charge again. We cover the Covid vaccine scene and steps Democrats need to take now that we are in control (Hint: do not let Mitch McConnell act as if he is Majority Leader). David Levinthal, Senior Washington Correspondent for Business Insider joins the conversation to talk about the post-Trump media landscape.

Love the prodcast
I’m so happy I found this Prodcast. I miss Shannyn from her radio days and her prodcast there.
Yes and no
As a life-long liberal who has always voted for the Democrats (in spite of continued disappointment), I love your podcast. I also am very happy to welcome Schmidt to the big tent. I don’t care about their past mistakes. What about Democrats long list of mistakes —-their abandonment of the working class—Trump was brought to us by Democrats! Yes —even Obama. Let’s be honest here. Let’s welcome all anti-fascists!!
