Love you guys but too much chatter

Great topics once you get past all your commercials and chit chat that is very repetitive and has made me stop listening some times. When you can focus instead of acting like teens with ADD your messages have gotten me to donate to the cause but you pick on moderates too much. I am part of a long line of feminists but still don't consider myself a socialist and we can be rural yet educated and have money! Humor is good but being rambling idiots sometimes is not.

my primary source for US politics

This podcast has been a lifesaver-- it cuts through the nonsense and gives a smart, funny, quick take on the biggest US political stories of the week. The hosts know their stuff. Having been part of Obama's team, they have the inside scoop on how decisions are made in an administration and the hurdles legislation faces so they can break it all down, give their insights and predictions, point out the beauty or flaws in a plan, etc. I'm much more politically-aware for having listened over the last few years.

Comedic, Substantive Politics

I've listened to Pod Save America for years on other platforms and am pleased to see it on Audible. The guys offer a comedic spin on serious issues, allowing a digestible way to get into the weeds. I enjoy their analysis. Each episode contains an interview with someone - from sitting elected officials, to candidates, to folks involved in non-profits or subject matter experts. It's an all around great listen. Given that all 4 are former Obama staffers, there is some bias here, that's to be expected. If you lean far to the right you likely won't enjoy their content. I certainly recommend to center left folks, both in the US and abroad (if you're into American politics).

Always worth the listen

If you only want to listen to one political podcast, make it this one. Smart, insightful, and fun.

ANSWERS!

It only took 4 years but I found you (thanks to Audible). Listened to all available shows yesterday, Thanksgiving 2020. I even missed my annual Macy's Parade but it was worth it! Finally! Folks that share my political ideology. I've been so dismayed, disappointed, even bamboozled in wishful thinking listening to what's available on television news. You guys are the real-real. I'll be listening and participating ($$) as long as you have this platform. If you move, let me know. So immensely glad and highly impressed with your program. YES WE CAN!!

All Trump, all the time

I used to love these guys. But all they talk about (still!) is Trump Trump Trump. The Obama Bros are woefully out of touch and irrelevant now. Bummer

gives me hope for the future!

they do a good job of giving me a good overview of current events. I feel they are as tough on the left as they are the right.
