About This List

These podcasts are as progressive as they come! I've put together a list of the best podcasts that take a progressive approach to American politics. These shows talk about issues such as raising the minimum wage, racial equality, better state programs and even gun control. "Progressive" is quite a broad term, but I tried to include views of everyone from old school liberals to democratic socialists. The woke crowd can find a show to like in here and I find that there are episodes in these shows that always reach the top of my podcast app. Truly some of the best!
