DGital Media announced a partnership to help launch a new show dubbed Pod Save America. The podcast will cover politics and is intended to spark involvement from listeners.
Pod Save America is hosted by Jon Favreau, Jon Lovett, Tommy Vietor, and Dan Pfeiffer. The first three were staffers for President Barack Obama, and Pfeiffer was a White House Communications Director. The group previously hosted a show called Keepin’ It 1600 on the website The Ringer. They have since launched a company called Crooked Media, and Pod Save America is a revamp of that show for their new venture. New episodes of the show will air on Mondays and Thursdays beginning Jan. 9.
“Talent of this level, both in their influence on the world of politics combined with their skillful and entertaining style of communicating with each other, is rare.” DGital Chief Content Officer Chris Corcoran said. “There is probably no better time in American history to have informed, fun and intelligent conversation around the world of politics, and this series will consistently raise the bar and deliver all of that and more. DGital Media is honored to be partnering with this unmatched team and compelling series.”
