The years since the 2016 election have seen an unprecedented boom in political podcasts, and none have explored the often-bewildering issues of the day with more authority and insight than the ones at Crooked Media, the progressive media company founded by former officials from the Obama White House. In this live, Canadian exclusive, former Obama spokesman Tommy Vietor, co-host of the wildly popular shows Pod Save America and Pod Save the World, and Tanya Somanader, a former Nancy Pelosi adviser who is Crooked's chief content officer, will discuss the rise of political podcasting and what’s next for the genre—and the political movements it has sustained—as we enter the post-Trump era.

In conversation with Sarah Larson, staff writer and columnist at The New Yorker.
