Jason Zengerle – The New York Times:
“Pod Save America,” by contrast, has no conservative antecedent. The craft-beer-bar-bull-session vibe of podcasts suits the left better than the shouty antagonism of talk radio. “Rather than trying to replicate what’s worked on the right, these podcasts aren’t taking the same tropes you see on Fox or hear on conservative talk radio and applying them to the left,” Miller says.
I’ve been enjoying another of Crooked Media’s podcasts, Pod Save the People, for a couple of months now. Hosted by DeRay Mckesson, it’s focused on issues directly affecting black America. It’ll wake you straight up, but the hosts aren’t shrill or shouty. Fact-based, long on detail, devoid of BS. Recommended.
