Pod Save America
We thought we were done with podcasts about US politics, but turns out they're not done with us. The former Obama staffers behind our favourite 2016 election companion, Keepin' it 1600, have broken from Bill Simmons' network to launch their own independent show, Pod Save America. In the lead-up to 8th November, our hosts were certain about the likelihood of a Clinton victory. (If we never again listen to their post-election episode - a document of baffled and humiliated apology - it will be too soon.) But they have rallied in this new venture, which sees them deploy their needling wit and righteous indignation in service of reporting and resistance. Twice-weekly episodes will offer the same insider analysis that made 1600 essential, as the show covers headline news, speculates about the future, and interviews key players in politics, activism and media.
