A liberal answer to RW talk radio

I had not heard of this. Apparently it is relatively new, started with the run-up to the last election and is growing rapidly. A left leaning podcast series.

How Pod Save America became the left's conservative talk radio


Jason Zengerle has a fun, insightful read for tomorrow's N.Y. Times Magazine, "The Voices in Blue America's Head," that captures the quick business and cultural success of the Pod Save America empire:

Genesis: "During the 2016 campaign, [Jon] Favreau, [Jon] Lovett, [Tommy] Vietor and [Dan] Pfeiffer ... hosted a popular politics podcast for Bill Simmons's sports-and-pop-culture website The Ringer called 'Keepin' It 1600.'"

Revelation: "More than 1,600 political podcasts most of them anti-Trump have appeared since the 2016 election, according to RawVoice, a podcast hosting and analytics company. 'Pod Save America,' with nearly 120 million downloads to date, is the undisputed king of the field."

Why it matters: "With a shoestring budget and no organizational backing, its hosts seem to have created something that liberals have spent almost two decades, and hundreds of millions of dollars, futilely searching for: the left's answer to conservative talk radio."

There is also the RadioBae app for your smart phone that links you to progressive talk radio stations across the US.

Oh my. The leftists have discovered the internet. There will be no stopping them now. If only they could get the tech giants ti censor opposing opinions so their messsge was the only one available they could maybe put an end to all of the red pilling.
