Prophetier reviewed this podcast on Sep 22nd, 2017
"Jon Lovett is one of the founders of Crooked Media and Lovett or Leave It is his weekly (Friday) show in front of the live audience. He was a speech writer for both Hilarry and Obama and his specialty was humor - and boy does he bring it for this show. The show consists of him and usually 3 other comics/journalists/media personalities going through everything that mattered in politics through the last week ("What a week!") and offering jokes on the topics. There are also various games and different segments that keep the episodes fresh. Live audience is a huge plus"
