To listen to an audio podcast, mouse over the title and click Play. Open iTunes to download and subscribe to podcasts.


This podcast is a beautifully executed compilation combining the absolute best in progressive and liberal political news, commentary and occasional comedy with great music to pull it all together. Each edition focuses on a political theme and delivers a variety of stories and perspectives from an array of sources on that theme. By the way, this is an ENHANCED PODCAST with cool features built in which is fun but that means that it's not compatible with everyone's audio player.

Customer Reviews

Very Entertaining Show

The publisher of this podcast does a great job of putting together clips from a variety of left-leaning shows into an almost-daily podcast. Often, the shows are themed around whichever issue is the leading topic de jour. He seems to slightly favour entertainment over information, so you don't hear much from the dry, info-dense shows like Democracy Now, but you get a lot of the lighter fair like Young Turks. His own end-of-show commentary is often a bit whiney, so I usually skip that part (as he himself suggests), but overall, it's a great show.

Awesome Overview

I love this podcast, Hibbie Sympathizer gives you an awesome overview of what is going on in the best progressive podcasts. Great taste in music as well.

Just following the 5-5-5 rule

Great show Jay!! I have been a listener since the very beginning and the show keeps getting better all the time. Keep up the great work and can't wait to hear the show on wednesday and then again on saturday. Two shows a week is a treat for anyone who listens. Thanks for making this podcast the very best that it can be.
