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.

COVIDiots and Maskholes oh my! AND comedian Julia Scotti
This week Shannyn and Mike breakdown all the insanity coming out of Florida's COVID mask wars. California also has its share of maskholes mucking about in the school system there. And we also go over the age-old question of "Can COVID victims I get the vaccine while sick?" Spoiler alert: NO! We also speak with the super talented comedian Julia Scotti. She talks to us about being on America's Got Talent and going public as a person of Transgender experience.
Checkout on Aisle One: Leaving Afghanistan
This week Mike and Shannyn cover all things pullout of Afghanistan. Has Biden made a misstep, as the Mainstream Media would like you to think or is there something else afoot? They also cover this week's COVID insanity, and its not just happening in Texas and Florida (but mostly is). There has also been a whole host of controversy surrounding who should replace Alex Trebek on Jeopardy!

May 27 w/Michael Cohen
Thank you for this episode. Michael’s book, DISLOYAL, and his podcast, MEA CULPA, should be required reading/listening for every single American. Now.
It’s hard to like a podcast that is incoherent in its format and indecipherable in its promised programming. The ying/yang of quality content is vexing. The two of you are a lot of fun, but it’s quickly becoming a drunken stand up night at the mic contest. You can do better.
