    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."

    We already had the "liberal answer" to RW talk radio.

    It was called "Air America".

    It didn't last long...

    Listened through a couple of the podcasts.

    Didn't seem to flow very well. Be interested in hearing opinions from the more left leaning forum members.

    Here is the link...

    The anti-dote to right wing media is education. Just keep learning and you will do fine. I use an app on my phone called "podcasts", it has an incredible variety of excellent pod casts to pick from. I usually go to Philosophize This or Intelligence Squared, both challenge you to think.

    I read quite a bit. There were many good articles.

    After just listening to Joe and John, I really want to keep that feeling of togetherness going.

    The "anti-dote" to right wing AND left wing media is education.

    Anyone who listens to only one side of the media, and believes them is a fool.

    Exactly ......

    And, why did Air America fail?

    No one wants to hear left-winged propaganda and lies.

    Right-wing talk radio has something that the left will never be able to compete against.

    Truth, facts, and ideas in the real world.

    The left will never be able to compete in this arena.

    Never.

    Smear, spin, and propaganda IS NOT an antidote.
