Regardless of what side you may fall on, liberal or conservative, these past elections have really increased peoples interest and involvement in our government and the politics of our nation. For myself I wanted to dive deeper, and explore peoples opinions on our current government and what we should expect for the next four, or even eight years. I started searching most of the major news sites, digging into various articles and opinion pieces, but sadly most were only dry textbook stories or overly dramatic click-bait.
I randomly checked the iTunes podcast top 100 chart and saw Pod Save America. “Four former aides to President Obama — Jon Favreau, Dan Pfeiffer, Jon Lovett, and Tommy Vietor — are joined by journalists, politicians, comedians, and activists for a freewheeling conversation about politics, the press and the challenges posed by the Trump presidency.” Sounds exactly like what I was looking to find, though I was hoping for a more politically-balanced viewpoint.
On the whole this is a fantastic podcast, they all do a great job of discussing the challenges our government faces, explaining the details of policy, all while keeping it entertaining a fun. They occasional get a bit heavy in the jargon which can become confusing sometimes, but the majority of the time it’s clear and easy to follow. Though the viewpoint is very Liberal/Democratic, it’s a great pod for anyone wanting to hear an interesting and engaging discussion and I highly recommend you take a listen.
