Last night, our new favorite humorous political commentators appeared on the show of our longtime favorite humorous political commentator! Or, in other words, several hosts of Pod Save America appeared on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert to gossip about current events and call Trump a “fascist hamburglar.” Yeah, they’re our new faves for a reason.
Pod Save America is a podcast hosted by former Obama-era White House staffers Jon Favreau, Tommy Vietor, and John Lovett (and Dan Pfeiffer), who previously worked together on Keeping It 1600 for The Ringer. Their new show, along with all the podcasts on their Crooked Media Network, is intended to inform the audience on the issues while advocating for Democratic political involvement. And also being snarky. You know how Pajiba’s been all about politics lately? It’s like that but they’re smarter than us.
You can catch up with Pod Save America (although why would you want to relive all that terrible news?) with the latest episode below, and check out the rest of Crooked Media’s shows on their website. I strongly urge that you do — it helps to get your commentary from people who actually know what it’s like to run a country. That they’re also super charming and hilarious is just a bonus.
