At only 18-years-old, Gabe Fleisher has already made quite a name for himself. When he was 9-years-old, Gabe started getting up at the crack of dawn to send out a daily email newsletter with his analysis of the political news cycle. He called it Wake Up To Politics, and it slowly developed a large readership. Now, in partnership with St. Louis Public Radio, Fleisher will extend his popular newsletter with a podcast that explains the inner workings of American politics. And just like his newsletter, episodes will be short, sweet and to the point.

Absolutely as GREAT as Gabe’s newsletter

When I learned that Gabe was doing a podcast, I couldn’t wait to listen. I’ve been a daily reader of his Wake up to Politics newsletter, where he clearly and concisely boils down the day’s news, attaching links if you want to read more. It’s the perfect news source if you want to keep abreast of what’s happening politically, but don’t have time to watch/listen to hours of commentary. This is just the 1st podcast, but it did not disappoint: clear and concise. I can’t wait for the next episode.

Perfect.

I am an avid reader of Gabe’s newsletter and I was so excited to hear about this podcast! It’s clear, informative, and the perfect length for my morning run. Would recommend to anyone who is interested in learning a little more about the political system we participate in.
