Best of the Left Podcast


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 left-leaning political news, commentary and occasional comedy with great music to pull it all together. For each edition I choose a political theme and deliver a variety of stories and perspectives from an array of sources on that theme. Sources for this compilation show include The Rachel Maddow Show and All in with Chris Hayes from MSNBC. I also include independent productions such as The Young Turks, The Majority Report, The David Pakman Show, Thom Hartmann, Dan Savage from the Savage Lovecast, Throwing Shade, This Week in Blackness, The Trans Advocate, Truthdig Radio, GRITtv, Mumia Abu-Jamal, The Good Fight from, Common Sense with Dan Carlin, The Bugle, Democracy NOW!, Jimmy Dore Show, Citizen Radio, Radio Dispatch, Moyers and Company, Media Matters Minute, Need to Know, Counterspin from, The Story Collider, Q from CBC Radio, Living on Earth from PRI, Gay USA, David Feldman Show, Black Agenda Radio, Belabored by Dissent Magazine, Slate magazine, Lee Camp, On the Media, Radio Ecoshock, Le Show with Harry Shearer, Real Time with Bill Maher, The Onion Radio News, The Onion News Network, The Daily Show, The Colbert Report and Green New Report. 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. For the STANDARD MP3 feed visit to subscribe (even if you still want to use iTunes to manage your subscription).

Customer Reviews


I love having the best of Progressive Talk Radio assembled for my listening pleasure. I very much appreciate the effort that goes into this podcast. Thanks!

Promise Come True

Best of the Left is exactly what podcasts should be about. It's an easy, convenient way for me to get the information I seek, I need and don't have the time to find myself. The quality of the clips is always high - clear thinking and straightforward opinions. Keep it up!

Liberal Cliff Notes

Just enough great radio to keep you going through your morning workout or drive to work and home. A much appreciated service. This guy consumes massive amounts of radio to put this together. Love the raw, scattered musings of the host at the end of the show. Well worth the download.
