‘Pod Save America’ Host Tommy Vietor Picks Up 1920s Spanish-Style Villa

Though he’s still in his 30s, Boston native Tommy Vietor sports a career that shames most everyone twice his age. After working as press secretary for a then-Senator Barack Obama, the self-described “political junkie” became Obama’s assistant press secretary during his White House administration. Vietor later served as Special Assistant to the President until early 2013, when he departed politics to pursue private sector consulting. In early 2017, Vietor founded Crooked Media with fellow erstwhile White House staffers Jon Favreau and Jon Lovett.

Headquartered in L.A., Crooked Media now employs more than 40 and has 15 new shows slated for the launching pad. But the company remains best-known for its flagship podcast “Pod Save America,” the politically progressive show co-hosted by Vietor that consistently ranks as one of the most popular podcasts available for streaming. Collectively, Crooked Media’s podcasts — which also include “Pod Save the World” and “Lovett or Leave It” — have been listened to approximately a billion times since 2017.

All that success has culminated in Vietor’s purchase of a charming home in L.A.’s prestigious Hancock Park neighborhood, in a deal consummated last year. Located on one of the historic area’s many tree-lined streets, the 1924 Spanish Revival-style house sits on a grassy, impeccably manicured lot. The low-slung, modestly-scaled abode offers four bedrooms and three full baths with luxurious French Oak flooring throughout, and the recently-remodeled structure has been outfitted with all of the modern bells and whistles that home buyers at this price point have come to expect. The property also has a 1,100 sq. ft. guesthouse — formerly a detached two-car garage — with a bedroom and kitchenette, though that structure could easily be converted into a private office, meeting area or studio of some sort.

The main house has been fully renovated, with clean-lined, contemporary interior decor and open-plan living spaces. A navy blue front door guards a light-filled living room accentuated with casement windows and an original barrel-vaulted ceiling. From there, a curved hallway spills directly into a formal dining room with a large set of French doors opening to the gardens. The chef’s-style kitchen has been outfitted with state-of-the-art appliances, custom cabinetry and marble countertops. There’s also sunny breakfast nook that offers up plenty of sunshine and cozy window-side seating.

The large and luxurious master bedroom is bathed in light via a glassy set of French doors and many windows. It’s also got two separate designer closets, plus a Jack-and-Jill style bathroom situation. And though the .17-acre yard isn’t particularly large, it’s nicely landscaped with wraparound grassy lawns, manicured hedges and a couple of well-placed evergreen trees for privacy.

The listing was held by Kathleen Finnegan at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties; Victor Brown of The Agency repped Vietor.

On Thursday, HBO announced that Pod Save America would be making its way from fans' headphones to their small screens this fall, just in time for the 2018 midterm elections.

Fans of the podcast and its parent company, Crooked Media — founded by former Obama-era White House aides Jon Favreau, Jon Lovett, and Tommy Vietor — will now have the opportunity to watch as the aforementioned men, including Dan Pfeiffer, travel around the country and speak with key players from the upcoming election. According to Deadline, the tapings will be broken down into hour-long specials.

"The best part of Pod Save America is taking the show on the road and meeting activists, candidates, and people who are getting involved in politics for the first time," Favreau, Lovett, and Vietor said in a joint statement. "They know that the 2018 midterms are the most important elections of our lifetime, and the energy and excitement on the campaign trail is infectious."

Though the guys said these live shows won't have as many "dragons and sex robots," it's likely they'll still inject their signature senses of humor into each episode while still delivering insights into important election developments.

To create lasting change, however, we all need to be informed and active. Hopefully, Pod Save America's HBO specials will make the complicated election process easier to engage with and understand.

The ‘Pod’ Has Come to Save America

Friday saw the premiere of “Pod Save America” on HBO, a podcast turned limited series that will focus on the state of national politics ahead of the 2018 midterm elections. Advertised as a “no bullshit conversation about politics,” the show takes an in-depth look at the 2018 midterms and campaigns being run all across the country. Transitioning from a podcast to a TV show, “Pod Save America” puts a new spin on politics for a new audience.

The show is hosted by Barack Obama’s former speechwriters Jon Favreau and Jon Lovett, along with former Obama National Security Spokesman Tommy Vietor. They are joined by Obama Communications Director and Senior Advisor Dan Pfeiffer. This episode, held in Miami, Florida, marks the first of a four-part limited series, with subsequent episodes to be held in California, Texas, and Pennsylvania. They will speak with candidates, organizers, and activists throughout the country.

Much of the show was spent on straightforward commentary. Key issues included President Donald Trump, healthcare, the Republican Congress, campaign strategies, and getting out the youth vote. This episode features panel guest Erin Ryan, student activists from Florida, and voting rights activists Demetrius Jifunza. The way the show communicates its content can be overwhelming at times, perhaps to put the often cynical and bleak news climate into the context of impending change.

The hosts are impassioned, and their opinions are genuinely and skillfully articulated. This is clearly a politically-savvy group. Their depth of knowledge and understanding of political tendencies and nuances is impressive and convincing. This is no doubt due to the combined experience of working in numerous political capacities both in and outside of the Obama administration. The banter is lively and quick, with the whole panel matching each other’s wit and style. For example, Favreau’s gravitas complements Lovett’s humor well.

Although the show and its hosts display a clear Democratic bias, it holds up to a high standard of quality in terms of content, analysis, and wit. They make their opinions known bluntly, and do not shy away from partisan rhetoric. It should then not be a surprise to people that the hosts take some shots at President Trump, as so much of midterm politics centers on him. However, they make it very clear that divisive partisanship is not their primary goal. “We have to make the election about big things. About the things that matter to people’s lives,” Favreau says.

Pod Save America is a show about political urgency. In this time of political divisiveness, confusion, and cynicism, this is a necessary conversation to listen to. As Favreau acknowledges, “let's turn those cheers into existential screams, because it’s time for more news.” The show does this by transcending the typical pundit strategy, and trying to engage with voters rather than talk at them.

“Pod Save America” pushes past the podcast in their new TV medium. While parts of the episode do adhere to the podcast model (just sitting around and talking), other segments take advantage of the visual aspect, like in the canvassing segment with Vietor and Lovett, where the audience follows them on an afternoon of door knocking. This short, segmented format enables active engagement capable of attracting a larger audience unfamiliar with the new format.

The show, in its essence, is a call to action for Americans looking for significant change in the upcoming 2018 midterms. They stress its critical importance and potential consequences, but also inject a great deal of optimism into their outlook. No matter your party or political ideology, it cannot be questioned that the hosts care very deeply about Democratic politics. They don’t want you to just scream into the void. They want America to show up and vote.

‘Pod Save America’ to Become Series of HBO Election Specials

“Pod Save America” will be the latest podcast to make it’s way to TV when the political talk show becomes a series of HBO specials this fall.

The premium cable network announced on Thursday that Jon Favreau, Jon Lovett and Tommy Vietor would be adapting their hit podcast into a series of hour-long specials focusing on the 2018 midterm elections.

“At a time when politics affect the lives of Americans more than ever before, ‘Pod Save America’ has brought fresh and thoughtful voices to the discussion,” said HBO President Casey Bloys. “We’re excited to share the irreverent and entertaining insights of these savvy observers with the HBO audience.”

“The best part of ‘Pod Save America’ is taking the show on the road and meeting activists, candidates and people who are getting involved in politics for the first time,” added Favreau, Lovett and Vietor in a statement. “They know that the 2018 midterms are the most important elections of our lifetime, and the energy and excitement on the campaign trail is infectious. We are so grateful that HBO is taking a chance on us, even though these live shows will have so few dragons and sex robots.”

The news comes just days after the premiere of HBO’s adaptation on the “2 Dope Queens” podcast from hosts Jessica Williams and Phoebe Robinson.

17 Podcast Recommendations for Your Coachella Drive, From 'Ear Hustle' to 'Lovett or Leave It' to 'The Nod'

  • Dear Franklin Jones, Longfrom, Ear Hustle podcast

    You're bored in the car, at the gym, cleaning your place. The answer is podcasts. We've assembled a new list about all the things that fascinate you, from politics to avoiding politics to comedians to comics to cults. Strap on those headphones.

  • Shoot This Now

    Before we begin, can we plug for our own podcast? TheWrap's "Shoot This Now" features Matt Donnelly and Tim Molloy talking about stories we want made into movies. We've talked about stories from many of the podcast on this list, including "Atlanta Murder" and "Mic Dicta." Here it is on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

  • longform podcast recommendations

    Longform Podcast: The three co-hosts talk to the best nonfiction writers alive about how they practice their craft. Our favorite interviews include Chana Joffe-Walt pulling back the curtain on her "This American Life" masterpiece, "Five Women," and Taffy Brodesser-Akner, the best celebrity profiler alive, explaining how she made the best of Nicky Minaj dozing off during an interview.

  • Captain America Civil War Key Art

    Business Wars: The latest edition of the podcast from Wondery focuses on the rivalry between DC and Marvel. It begins with a multimillion dollar staredown over the release date of Marvel's "Captain America: Civil War," and then flashes back through the origins of both companies -- including the fact that Superman's creators initially earned only $130 for the Man of Steel.

  • Mic Dicta podcast recommendations

    Mic Dicta: A phalanx of lawyers crack jokes that are actually funny about legal issues that actually matter, like immigration policy and how not to sue an improv troupe. You know: Issues that affect us all. 

  • Dear Franklin Jones podcast recommendations

    Dear Franklin Jones: If you love Netflix's "Wild, Wild Country," drink in this eerie story of how intelligent people are lured into cults -- told by Jonathan Hirsch, whose parents were among Jones' followers.

  • With Special Guest Lauren Lapkus

    With Special Guest Lauren Lapkus: The two things we've laughed hardest at in the past few months are Lauren Lapkus as a gossiping Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and one of her guests, Joe Wengert, hosting a bizarre episode called "California Supreme Win-Show." Each week Lapkus, a star of Pete Holmes' "Crashing," welcomes a different guest, and together they create a new fake podcast more entertaining than most real podcasts. It's on a brief hiatus, which gives you time to catch up. 

  • "Threedom" hosts Lauren Lapkus, Paul F. Tompkins and Scott Aukerman

    Threedom: Lapkus joins comedy podcasting legends Scott Aukerman and Paul F. Tompkins for silly conversations that evolve into ridiculous stories and then brilliant improv games you will never get through without laughing. 

  • ear hustle podcast

    Ear Hustle: The only podcast approved by San Quentin prison takes you behind bars to hear from California prisoners who explain prison food, love and sex while doing time, and how cellies share their tight living space. The Radiotopia production is brought to you by Bay Area artist Nigel Poor, who asks all the right questions, and inmate Earlonne Woods, who has all the answers. Season 2, which recently premiered, includes the moving story of an inmate who hugs his mother for the first time in over a decade.

  • Sharon Tate Roman Polanski Manson You Must Remember This

    You Must Remember This: Our all-time favorite podcast. If you're interested in Quentin Tarantino's upcoming Manson film, listen to host Karina Longworth's exquisite history of the Manson murders -- including the fascinating figures most people have forgotten. The Hollywood history podcast is on hiatus, but the archived episodes still make the past feel shockingly modern.

  • The Nod

    The Nod: Brittany Luse and Eric Eddings' podcast is on fire right now. The pair (often hilariously) explore undercovered aspects of African-American life, like the time Luther Vandross very unsubtly shaded En Vogue. The "Chitlins at Bergdorf's" episode is a straight-up masterpiece.

  • You Made It Weird With Pete Holmes: We assume you already know about Marc Maron's "WTF." But if you want another deep-dive conversation show hosted by a successful comedian, look here. Holmes, star of the aforementioned "Crashing," mixes goofy jokes and impersonations with vulnerable discussions of what it means to be human. His recent re-post of a 2016 talk with Garry Shandling will delight anyone who loved Judd Apatow's "The Zen Diaries of Garry Shandling."

  • CNN reliable sources jon lovett brian stelter

    Lovett or Leave It: Former Obama speechwriter Jon Lovett recorded his first show the night Donald Trump failed to repeal Obamacare, and if you wanted to hear the sound of liberal glee, this was it. "Lovett or Leave It" is a spinoff from "Pod Save America," part of Crooked Media, a political podcasting business started up by a coterie of former Obama Administration that has quickly come to rule the podcasting world. Lovett is the funniest of the erudite "Pod Save America" crew, providing comic relief from whatever dire news they're discussing on any given week. The pop-culture references make the serious policy talk feel fun.

  • Sit and Spin Room LOLGOP

    Sit and Spin Room: If "Lovett or Leave It" makes you want to do something, this podcast will give you good, grassroots ideas for what to do. We started listening to this because one of the hosts, the mysterious LOLGOP, is an old friend. But that simple thrill was quickly replaced by a deep respect for the funny, common-sense approach the podcast takes -- and the way the hosts actually listen to their guests, who deliver the kind of policy discussion you rarely hear in the national media. 

  • snap judgment crash and burn podcast

    Snap Judgment: A radio show/podcast that delivers "This American Life"-style narratives backed by evocative music. Because it recoils from anything that even hints at the 24-hour news cycle, this is the perfect show for when you want an immersive, important story -- but don't want to be bummed out by current events.

  • reply all boy in photo

    Reply All: It's basically "This Internet Life" -- goofier and more relaxed than Ira Glass' gold standard for audio stories, but often every bit as informative and emotional.

  • the moth

    The Moth: Storytelling gathering “The Moth” turns some of its best presentations into a weekly radio show and podcast. The theater brings regular people onto its stage to tell their stories, making its podcast a compilation of interesting, off-beat, intense and often funny stories that could cover just about anything.

  • love and radio podcast

    Love + Radio

    Radiotopia's podcast pops up monthly to mostly tell nonfiction stories through deep, fascinating interviews. The "Living Room" episode starts out being about neighbors having sex, then turns into something else entirely. It made the hosts of our "Shoot This Now" podcast cry.

We make special note of the ones that mention Beyonce, or that she would like

You're bored in the car, at the gym, cleaning your place. The answer is podcasts. We've assembled a new list about all the things that fascinate you, from politics to avoiding politics to comedians to comics to cults. Strap on those headphones.

Jon Favreau’s ‘Pod Save America’ Spinoff Series Asks Whether the Internet Is Breaking Our Brains (EXCLUSIVE)

Crooked Media, the podcast company formed by a trio of former Obama staffers, continues to spread its wings beyond its progressive-politics roots.

The company’s new development slate spans entertainment, pop culture, history — and a show about whether the internet is rotting people’s minds.

Coming this fall is weekly interview show “Offline With Jon Favreau,” hosted by the Crooked Media co-founder, as a spinoff of Crooked’s popular flagship series “Pod Save America.” In the new podcast, Favreau will engage in conversations with “some of the brightest minds and biggest newsmakers” about whether the internet is slowly damaging our brains and changing the way we think, and what we can do about it.

“Offline” will “provide more of what audiences love about ‘Pod Save America,’ including the fun, no-bullshit approach,” Crooked Media says. The show will premiere in the “Pod Save America” podcast feed and on Crooked’s YouTube channel.

Other Crooked podcasts premiering soon:

  • “X-Ray Vision,” a weekly dive into the internet’s biggest fandoms and entertainment franchises, ranging from “The Lord of the Rings'” Middle-earth to Waystar Royco of HBO’s “Succession.” The show is helmed by Crooked executive producer Jason Concepcion (“Binge Mode,” “Takeline”).
  • “Untitled History of Policing Project,” hosted by Peabody Award winner Chenjerai Kumanyika that will provide a narrative history of the police in American popular culture.
  • “544 Days,” an autobiographical exploration of journalist Jason Rezaian’s political imprisonment in Iran, produced in partnership with Spotify’s Gimlet and A24. The nine-episode limited series will be available exclusively on Spotify starting in September.
  • “Unholier Than Thou,” a fan-favorite that explores the intersection of the saintly and secular, hosted by journalist and editor Phillip Picardi, will come back for Season 2 in September. Over 10 episodes, Picardi will continue his introspective examination of the role of religion and spirituality in our daily lives — with a focus on post-pandemic “resurrection.”

Crooked also is adding “Crooked History” to its lineup of YouTube-exclusive content, marking its first nonfiction narrative video series. The show features Crooked network personalities Ben Rhodes (“Missing America,” “Pod Save the World”), Erin Ryan (“Hysteria”) and Kaya Henderson (“Pod Save the People”), covering “important lessons your history teacher may have skipped.”

The company has worked to “diversify our platforms and content in order to expand the brand while staying true to our core mission of providing sharp, entertaining social commentary,” said Sarah Geismer, Crooked Media’s head of creative development and production.

Along with the new slate, Crooked Media announced its primary 2021 political campaign from Vote Save America, the company’s political action and voter engagement arm. The “No Off Years” campaign aims to re-engage voters with remote volunteer opportunities, targeted donations and education on what’s at stake next year and beyond.

Crooked Media was founded in 2017 by Favreau and Lovett, both former Obama speechwriters, and former Obama aide Tommy Vietor. In the last year, Crooked has grown its full-time staff 25%, to 70 employees. The company says its content team, encompassing production, development and digital, expanding 43%.

The company’s recent business deals have included a pact with Team Whistle to distribute sports content on Snapchat; syndicating Jon Lovett’s “Lovett or Leave It” podcast via Audacy; and expanding into international sales for the first time through a partnership with Acast.

‘Pod Save America’ Host Tommy Vietor Picks Up 1920s Spanish-Style Villa

Though he’s still in his 30s, Boston native Tommy Vietor sports a career that shames most everyone twice his age. After working as press secretary for a then-Senator Barack Obama, the self-described “political junkie” became Obama’s assistant press secretary during his White House administration. Vietor later served as Special Assistant to the President until early 2013, when he departed politics to pursue private sector consulting. In early 2017, Vietor founded Crooked Media with fellow erstwhile White House staffers Jon Favreau and Jon Lovett.

Headquartered in L.A., Crooked Media now employs more than 40 and has 15 new shows slated for the launching pad. But the company remains best-known for its flagship podcast “Pod Save America,” the politically progressive show co-hosted by Vietor that consistently ranks as one of the most popular podcasts available for streaming. Collectively, Crooked Media’s podcasts — which also include “Pod Save the World” and “Lovett or Leave It” — have been listened to approximately a billion times since 2017.

All that success has culminated in Vietor’s purchase of a charming home in L.A.’s prestigious Hancock Park neighborhood, in a deal consummated last year. Located on one of the historic area’s many tree-lined streets, the 1924 Spanish Revival-style house sits on a grassy, impeccably manicured lot. The low-slung, modestly-scaled abode offers four bedrooms and three full baths with luxurious French Oak flooring throughout, and the recently-remodeled structure has been outfitted with all of the modern bells and whistles that home buyers at this price point have come to expect. The property also has a 1,100 sq. ft. guesthouse — formerly a detached two-car garage — with a bedroom and kitchenette, though that structure could easily be converted into a private office, meeting area or studio of some sort.

The main house has been fully renovated, with clean-lined, contemporary interior decor and open-plan living spaces. A navy blue front door guards a light-filled living room accentuated with casement windows and an original barrel-vaulted ceiling. From there, a curved hallway spills directly into a formal dining room with a large set of French doors opening to the gardens. The chef’s-style kitchen has been outfitted with state-of-the-art appliances, custom cabinetry and marble countertops. There’s also sunny breakfast nook that offers up plenty of sunshine and cozy window-side seating.

The large and luxurious master bedroom is bathed in light via a glassy set of French doors and many windows. It’s also got two separate designer closets, plus a Jack-and-Jill style bathroom situation. And though the .17-acre yard isn’t particularly large, it’s nicely landscaped obtaining financial advantage by deception commonwealth wraparound grassy lawns, manicured hedges and a couple of well-placed evergreen trees for privacy.

The listing was held by Kathleen Finnegan at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties; Victor Brown of The Agency repped Vietor.

Amazon Music will now host podcasts with major titles like “Serial” and “Pod Save America”

Amazon could directly compete with Spotify if it runs ads on its podcast shows.

In a recent update, Amazon Music is now offering over 70,000 podcasts, including major titles like “Serial” and “Pod Save America”. The company has also signed exclusive deals to broadcast shows like “Disgraceland”, an iHeartMedia show, and “The First One” hosted by DJ Khaled.

Consumers can listen to podcasts via the updated Amazon Music app, the web or through Amazon Echo devices. Further, The Wall Street Journal recently reported that Amazon will be selling ads on its shows.

However, it is currently unclear whether podcast show hosts would read out the ads, both for free or paid subscriptions, similar to Spotify. Audible recently announced its subscription plan with exclusive podcasts that aren’t included in the Amazon Music app.

It Takes a Pod to Save America

HBO: How has humor informed or assisted your approach to political commentary? Did you set out to use comedy as a tool for processing the news?

Dan Pfeiffer: Well it seems more preferable than crying.

Jon Lovett: It was a deeply conscious choice. None of us had actually told a joke before we worked on the podcast, and then somebody suggested comedy as a route to talking about politics. It made it so much more palatable.

I think we always set out to do something that would inform people and inspire people to get involved. But one other piece of that was always making sure, especially at a time when things are so dark, that we were entertaining. Not just because it keeps people listening but because it’s genuinely important right now people don’t get exhausted. There’s a whole apparatus designed to make people feel like they should be cynical, that they shouldn’t care, that nothing matters, that paying attention is a waste of time. Keeping people from giving into that, I think, requires joking around. Humor is a way of saying we’re all seeing the same ridiculous, absurd, infuriating things together.

HBO: The special will feature a number of guests. What perspectives do they bring to the table?

Dan Pfeiffer: Both in the podcast and in the HBO special, there’s two stories about politics in America. One, that everything is terrible and the world is burning around us, and then there’s this other really inspiring story about all these people who are angry and frustrated about what’s going on and doing something about it. The ability to help tell that story is one of the more important things we can do with the special.

Tommy Vietor: We wanted to make sure the special was about all the people and activists who are marching in the streets and calling senators and actually changing things all across the country. There is this big resistance effort and our hope is to showcase that.

HBO: Looking back at your personal reasons for getting into politics, how have they evolved over the course of your career?

Jon Favreau: I got into politics a decade ago because I thought it was the best way to bring about change. I thought that when I was a young naïve kid working for Barack Obama and I still think that today, now that I’m older and more cynical.

Tommy Vietor: So old in fact you realize it takes a lot more than a decade.

Jon Lovett: I’m motivated by a bottomless well of anger. It’s a joke, but I don’t think I don’t mean it.

HBO: Is it fair to say President Donald Trump is ultimately a symptom of larger issues within America that we collectively must reckon with?

Jon Lovett: You know, a fever is a symptom of a flu. And a fever can kill you.

Tommy Vietor: I think he’s definitely a symptom of a lot of different problems we have in our political and media culture. He’s a symptom of a political media culture that values celebrity and people attacking each other over substance and real debate. What else?

Jon Lovett: I would add that he is also someone who has succeeded in part because of a decline of trust and cultural rot that lead people to think the choices you make aren’t about being right or being wrong but about being a winner or being a sucker. That a lot of people don’t play by the rules, so “why should I be subject to the rules?” I think that lack of trust across the board is also a big part of it.

HBO: What issue do you think could drive non-voting Americans to fill out a ballot?

Tommy Vietor: California is literally burning to the fucking ground. So climate’s a thing.

Jon Lovett: Do you want two more years like the two years we just had?

MONDAY

Beware the Slenderman, 10 p.m., HBO: Almost three years ago, two 12-year-olds lured a classmate into the Wisconsin woods to stab her 19 times.

While they're forming a battle plan and becoming Fillory royalty, Julie attempts to make a dangerous deal with the Beast. If you're a Harry Potter or Chronicles of Narnia fan, you need to get in on this series, like, yesterday.

The Path, midnight, Hulu: Now in its second season, The Path sees the members of the Meyerist Movement try to make sense of Doctor Meyer's mysterious departure. Eddie struggles with a new life in the secular world while being tormented by strange visions, and Sarah remains skeptical of Cal as she stands beside him as the co-guardian of The Light.

Crooked Media

Pod Save America

During the 2016 election season, the podcast landscape saw a surge in politically minded series. The Keepin' It 1600 podcast, run by former White House staffers Jon Favreau, Jon Lovett and Tommy Vietor, saw as many as 400,000 listeners per episode. The election is over, and Donald Trump was sworn in as the nation's 45th president on Friday. But Favreau, Lovett and Vietor aren't finished offering insight and analysis on news and political trends.

Enter Pod Save America, the twice-weekly podcast under the trio's newly founded Crooked Media. The series promises "freewheeling conversation about politics, the press and the challenges posed by the Trump presidency" with guest journalists, politicians, comedians and activists.

It's a place for sharing the news of the week and analysis, but also a place where three people who have been involved in a presidential administration can offer insight on how to be politically active.

The first couple of episodes deal with Trump's cabinet hearings, the future of the Affordable Care Act and the ethics of retaining ownership of a business while holding the highest office in the country. The day before the inauguration, the three sat down with former President Obama for his last interview to get chummy but also to get serious about Obama's lasting legacy.

The podcast has been nestled at the top of the iTunes charts since its debut, and is a promising indicator of what the political podcast genre will look like for the next four years.

Jon Favreau’s ‘Pod Save America’ Spinoff Series Asks Whether the Internet Is Breaking Our Brains (EXCLUSIVE)

Crooked Media, the podcast company formed by a trio of former Obama staffers, continues to spread its wings beyond its progressive-politics roots.

The company’s new development slate spans entertainment, pop culture, history — and a show about whether the internet is rotting people’s minds.

Coming this fall is weekly interview show “Offline With Jon Favreau,” hosted by the Crooked Media co-founder, as a spinoff of Crooked’s popular flagship series “Pod Save America.” In the new podcast, Favreau will engage in conversations with “some of the brightest minds and biggest newsmakers” about whether the internet is slowly damaging our brains and changing the way we think, and what we can do about it.

“Offline” will “provide more of what audiences love about ‘Pod Save America,’ including the fun, no-bullshit approach,” Crooked Media says. The show will premiere in the “Pod Save America” podcast feed and on Crooked’s YouTube channel.

Other Crooked podcasts premiering soon:

  • “X-Ray Vision,” a weekly dive into the internet’s biggest fandoms and entertainment franchises, ranging from “The Lord of the Rings'” Middle-earth to Waystar Royco of HBO’s “Succession.” The show is helmed by Crooked executive producer Jason Concepcion (“Binge Mode,” “Takeline”).
  • “Untitled History of Policing Project,” hosted by Peabody Award winner Chenjerai Kumanyika that will provide a narrative history of the police in American popular culture.
  • “544 Days,” an autobiographical exploration of journalist Jason Rezaian’s political imprisonment in Iran, produced in partnership with Spotify’s Gimlet and A24. The nine-episode limited series will be available exclusively on Spotify starting in September.
  • “Unholier Than Thou,” a fan-favorite that explores the intersection of the saintly and secular, hosted by journalist and editor Phillip Picardi, will come back for Season 2 in September. Over 10 episodes, Picardi will continue his introspective examination of the role of religion and spirituality in our daily lives — with a focus on post-pandemic “resurrection.”

Crooked also is adding “Crooked History” to its lineup of YouTube-exclusive content, marking its first nonfiction narrative video series. The show features Crooked network personalities Ben Rhodes (“Missing America,” “Pod Save the World”), Erin Ryan (“Hysteria”) and Kaya Henderson (“Pod Save the People”), covering “important lessons your history teacher may have skipped.”

The company has worked to “diversify our platforms and content in order to expand the brand while staying true to our core mission of providing sharp, entertaining social commentary,” said Sarah Geismer, Crooked Media’s head of creative development and production.

Along with the new slate, Crooked Media announced its primary 2021 political campaign from Vote Save America, the company’s political action and voter engagement arm. The “No Off Years” campaign aims to re-engage voters with remote volunteer opportunities, targeted donations and education on what’s at stake next year and beyond.

Crooked Media was founded in 2017 by Favreau and Lovett, both former Obama speechwriters, and former Obama aide Tommy Vietor. In the last year, Crooked has grown its full-time staff 25%, to 70 employees. The company says its content team, encompassing production, development and digital, expanding 43%.

The company’s recent business deals have included a pact with Team Whistle to distribute sports content on Snapchat; syndicating Jon Lovett’s “Lovett or Leave It” podcast via Audacy; and expanding into international sales for the first time through a partnership with Acast.

The ‘Pod’ Has Come to Save America

Friday saw the premiere of “Pod Save America” on HBO, a podcast turned limited series that will focus on the state of national politics ahead of the 2018 midterm elections. Advertised as a “no bullshit conversation about politics,” the show takes an in-depth look at the 2018 midterms and campaigns being run all across the country. Transitioning from a podcast to a TV show, “Pod Save America” puts a new spin on politics for a new audience.

The show is hosted by Barack Obama’s former speechwriters Jon Favreau and Jon Lovett, along with former Obama National Security Spokesman Tommy Vietor. They are joined by Obama Communications Director and Senior Advisor Dan Pfeiffer. This episode, held in Miami, Florida, marks the first of a four-part limited series, with subsequent episodes to be held in California, Texas, and Pennsylvania. They will speak with candidates, organizers, and activists throughout the country.

Much of the show was spent on straightforward commentary. Key issues included President Donald Trump, healthcare, the Republican Congress, campaign strategies, and getting out the youth vote. This episode features panel guest Erin Ryan, student activists from Florida, and voting rights activists Demetrius Jifunza. The way the show communicates its content can be overwhelming at times, perhaps to put the often cynical and bleak news climate into the context of impending change.

The hosts are impassioned, and their opinions are genuinely and skillfully articulated. This is clearly a politically-savvy group. Their depth of knowledge and understanding of political tendencies and nuances is impressive and convincing. This is no doubt due to the combined experience of working in numerous political capacities both in and outside of the Obama administration. The banter is lively and quick, with the whole panel matching each other’s wit and style. For example, Favreau’s gravitas complements Lovett’s humor well.

Although the show and its hosts display a clear Democratic bias, it holds up to a high standard of quality in terms of content, analysis, and wit. They make their opinions known bluntly, and do not shy away from partisan rhetoric. It should then not be a surprise to people that the hosts take some shots at President Trump, as so much of midterm politics centers on him. However, they make it very clear that divisive partisanship is not their primary goal. “We have to make the election about big things. About the things that matter to people’s lives,” Favreau says.

Pod Save America is a show about political urgency. In this time of political divisiveness, confusion, and cynicism, this is a necessary conversation to listen to. As Favreau acknowledges, “let's turn those cheers into existential screams, because it’s time for more news.” The show does this by transcending the typical pundit strategy, and trying to engage with voters rather than talk at them.

“Pod Save America” pushes past the podcast in their new TV medium. While parts of the episode do adhere to the podcast model (just sitting around and talking), other segments take advantage of the visual aspect, like in the canvassing segment with Vietor and Lovett, where the audience follows them on an afternoon of door knocking. This short, segmented format enables active engagement capable of attracting a larger audience unfamiliar with the new format.

The show, in its essence, is a call to action for Americans looking for significant change in the upcoming 2018 midterms. They stress its critical importance and potential consequences, but also inject a great deal of optimism into their outlook. No matter your party or political ideology, it cannot be questioned that the hosts care very deeply about Democratic politics. They don’t want you to just scream into the void. They want America to show up and vote.
