  • Was Biden's "Big Boy Presser" Enough?
    Jul 12 2024

Plus, the latest signals from the campaign about what its strategy will be going forward, and how the Trump veepstakes is playing out with only days left to go.

  • Is the Biden Dam Breaking?
    Jul 11 2024

    The effort to remove President Biden from the ticket picks up momentum as more Democratic members of Congress speak out. Former Speaker Nancy Pelosi reveals more about her position—and says "time is running short" to make the right decision. MSNBC's Jen Psaki joins Lovett to break down the latest, and to talk about openly about what Biden needs to do to hang on.

  • Biden Digs In
    Jul 9 2024

    President Biden stays on the offensive, calling into his favorite morning show to excoriate the naysayers, rallying support among old allies, and vowing to everyone who will listen that he’s staying the race no matter what. Jon, Lovett, and Tommy lay out President Biden’s strategy and size up whether it’s working so far. And as the fight over Biden’s future moves to Capitol Hill, Lovett talks with Rep. Ro Khanna—a key Biden surrogate—about which way House members will go, and what Biden could be doing better.

These guys really take the sting out

America is weird and sad in so many ways right now, this team succeeds in making me feel slightly less depressed about it.

my favorite podcast

I somehow feel better about the crazy things going on in the USA after listening to these guys because they break things down in a digestible way and instead of complaining offer us ways to get involved and make change.

I love their banter

Their jokes are spot on, they dig into the opposition in very obvious ways which adds to the hilarity. You’re doing gods work gents.
