Political Podcasting

I am an avid podcast listener (probably 20-30 hours per week) and since 2015 most of them have been political. Below is my current list of podcasts. Anyone else out there have the same addiction?

Favorites (listen to every show):
Buzz Burbank News and Comment
Five Thirty Eight
NPR Politics Podcast
Left Right & Center
Political Gabfest
Words & Numbers (the most conservative podcast I listen to; can’t stand many of them)

The Rest (listen to ~30%)
Anderson Cooper 360
Can he Do That
The Daily
The Daily Show
Morning Joe
Pod Save America
Rachel Maddow Show
Today Explained
Up First
The Weeds

Economic (not exactly political but interesting)
Planet Money
The Indicator
WSJ Your Money Briefing

I’d love some suggestions for new ones, especially center/right leaning ones (for more balance).

Thanks maporsche.

My political podcast listening is less extensive than yours.

They tend to be hybrid podcasts (covering more than politics).
Fresh Air;
The Daily from the NY Times;
Today Explained from Vox;
New Yorker: Politics and More

Up First is a morning news roundup on NPR. Good for immediate breaking news and news I missed during the afternoon or evening.

Will give FiveThirtyEight a chance (but the name Nate Silver brings out an immediate irritated reaction when I hear it).

I cut the cord last summer and got into watching youtube video's. I've come across some interesting people to watch.
The only people who I watch that would be considered center or left/right of center:
Tim Pool
Dave Rubin
I recommend you watch the 2 guys above, they are center left and do not support extreme regressive leftists.

Jimmy Dore - Russiagate analysis.
I occasionally watch Rebel Media out of Canada.

As for the rest of my youtube political time, I do enjoy watching Mark Dice for the entertainment aspect of his videos. I spend most of my time on youtube watching knife making video's or other DIY stuff, I'll be building a retaining wall and patio extension over the next couple of weeks for my new BBQ area, youtube is chock full of great DIY videos.

I'm pretty sure that you're using regressive wrong.


Definition of regressive

1 : tending to regress or produce regression

2 : being, characterized by, or developing in the course of an evolutionary process involving increasing simplification of bodily structure

Merriam Webster


1 the act of going back to a previous place or state; return or reversion.

2 retrogradation; retrogression.


Aren't left of center Democrats leaning on Progressive tax policies?

I'm using it correctly, I see a difference between liberals and leftists. Leftists are regressive in a majority of their views and practices.
