From CAFE.com a podcast for and by women in the media. Hosted by Erin Gloria Ryan, co-hosted by Amanda Duarte and produced by Briana Haynie.
A distinctly new Jezebel podcast hosted by Joanna Rothkopf and Prachi Gupta who give you a fresh perspective on politics through an examination of the big time dicks behind the policy affecting our lives. This podcast is an approachably humorous tour of serious issues.
Rank #1: Pussy Riot’s Masha Alyokhina Is Warning Us.
We speak with Alyokhina about music as protest, her new book “Riot Days," and what it’s like to have your country run by a repressive egomanicac. Also: Bill O’Reilly blows a gasket.
Rank #2: Edie Windsor, the Dynamo.
We look back at the life and legacy of Edie Windsor, whose Supreme Court case struck down DOMA and paved the way for the legalization of same sex marriage across the country. We speak with one of her attorneys, the ACLU's James Esseks.
We are The FourFiftyOne, a podcast for the Resistance. Our hosts are Summer Brennan, Jesse Hirsch, and Jonathan Mann, two journalists and a musician discussing what it means to be an American in the age of Trump."The FourFiftyOne" takes its name from the book Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, set in a dystopian America where books are outlawed and any that are found are burned. The book's name comes from the assumed temperature at which paper will burst into flame.
Rank #1: Meanwhile, In Our Parallel Reality.
This week our hosts talk about the monster Mike Cernovich, flipping Congressional districts, finding ways to channel our scattered political energies, and Summer's exciting book project. They also want everyone to know that Jonathan's soon-to-arrive baby will likely put the podcast on a hiatus (updates on Twitter).
Rank #2: Baby On the Window Ledge.
This week, it's just your folksy, friendly hosts, sitting around and talking the talk. Summer, Jonathan and Jesse got together during the snowstorm to record their thoughts about affordable health care, the welfare state, the Overton window, and switching Trump and Clinton's genders. A special shout-out to cosplay wizard Ginny McQueen, who sent us all some resistance t-shirts!
Hellbent Podcast is a twice weekly political news and commentary podcast by Devon Handy and Varsha Venkat. They aim to bring a heavy intersectional feminist lens to the male-dominated political commentary space. They are funny, fierce, and unyielding. Their conversational style and penchant for swearing make Hellbent a fun, engaging way to discuss politics
Rank #1: 65: White Men are Canceled Effective Immediately.
Devon and Sarah discuss the Trump administration's obsession with controlling women and the links between free or low-cost birth control and women in poverty. They also name the Dickwad of the Week. Thank you to our sponsors for this week:Sun Basket - http://sunbasket.com/hellbentquip - http://getquip.com/hellbent WordPress.com - http://wordpress.com/hellbent
Rank #2: 62: Don't Let The Bastards Get You Down.
Devon and Sarah discuss North Korea, the humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico, and professional athlete's protests against police brutality and systemic racism that. They also award TWO Dickwads of the Week.
Explore the 2016 election and today’s political news with host Brian Beutler and his friends from both sides of the aisle. A weekly podcast from the New Republic.
Rank #1: The Republican Party's Descent Into the Dark Ages.
It’s hard to boil down all the ways the Trump campaign and presidency have reshaped American political norms into a single conceptual frame.But in his new, best-selling book Devil’s Bargain: Steve Bannon, Donald Trump, and The Storming of the Presidency, Businessweek’s Joshua Green has done just that. He joined New Republic Senior Editor Brian Beutler in studio to discuss the duo's impact on politics, and whether there’s any going back to how things were before.
Rank #2: The Republicans' Obamacare 'Waterloo' Moment Has Arrived.
Trumpcare is dead! At least for now. Senate Republicans lack sufficient support to repeal and replace Obamacare, or do anything to the health care system on a purely partisan basis. So what happens next? Will Republicans sabotage Obamacare for revenge? Will they feel compelled to stabilize the health care system? And how will congressional Republicans’ passivity toward Trump change now that their legislative agenda is in freefall. Daily Beast politics editor Sam Stein joined New Republic Senior Editor Brian Beutler in studio to discuss.
When talking about our economy, nightly newscasts only seem to report on the stock market and the unemployment rate. But that doesn’t tell us much about how millions of Americans are getting by. From prison phone rates to the high cost of diapers, Congressman Keith Ellison looks at how the people outside of the billionaire and millionaire class (you know, most of us) engage the economy.
Rank #1: Framing the Message with Professor George Lakoff.
George Lakoff is a professor of cognitive linguistics and philosophy at the University of California at Berkeley. Now, you might be asking yourself, “what does cognitive science, linguistic science, and phenomenology have to do with working families and the economy?” Well, as it turns out, quite a bit. Professor Lakoff studies the way that human beings think about ideas, including politics, and the way that the things we hear and say affect the things we believe. Music by: Podington Bear
Rank #2: Episode VI: Money in Politics.
How do the people outside of the millionaire and billionaire class (you know, most of us), engage with our economy and influence politics? Music: Viva La Vida by Coldplay

Dan Sinker and Maureen Johnson—one journalist and one author—try to figure out what the hell is going on. Maybe, together, they can figure it out (spoiler alert: probably not)! Why not grab your coffee (or something stronger) and pull up a chair? SAYS WHO: it's not a podcast—it's a coping strategy.
Rank #1: THE KETCHUP CONNECTION with Helen Rosner.
Dan and Maureen are not playing around anymore. The yarn is all around the room and there are pins all over. The crazy wall is showing a pattern, and that pattern is based on ketchup. Food writer and all around amazing person Helen Rosner is back to help break the case. What does it all mean? Does Trump eat fried mushrooms? What about ranch dressing? WHY ALL THE BEEF? We are THISCLOSE to cracking this wide open. Oh, and ELECTION DAY! We won! We have hope again! We are full of good news! Also, Dan has built a Trump pooping app. Maureen is back on the sponsorship trail. It's all about the food, Sayswhovians. Pull up a chair. This podcast is for eating. SHOW NOTES: TRUMP POOP WATCH!

Rank #2: INDICTMENT DAY EARLYCAST!.
Oh boy oh boy oh boy oh boy oh boy. Today was such an amazing day that Dan and Maureen sat down to record early. Copetober had one more surprise in store, and it was a big one. It was the Great Pumpkin, Saywhovians! And Dan and Maureen are here for it. In fact, the import of this day may have evicted them from the remains of their minds. What is this warm and glowing feeling? Is it HOPE? Yes, it is INDICTMENT DAY!! Manafort woke up bright and early this morning and drive himself over to the FBI, a low level stooge may have flipped, and Trump of course took it all really well. We are here for IT and for YOU and we break it all down as best we can. There are other things, too, like pooping and pie and Stardew Valley. There is a wonderland of audio goodness ahead. Why can't Maureen fish? Why does Dan hate cherries? Who is best at irrigation? Do rice and two pieces of cherry pie make a meal? Blue Apron? Who cares? IT'S INDICTMENT DAY!

We sit down with Jezebel pop culture reporter Hazel Cills to unpack the grossest dirt of all: the nasty mess of influencer drama. We take a walk down memory lane with Jeffree Star, excavate the Bhad Bhabie/WoahhVicky/Lil Tay fracas, and reminisce about that time Logan Paul offended literally the entire world with one vlog...and both Pauls offend us with their presence.

BuzzFeed Editor In Chief Ben Smith hosts conversations on the intersection of politics, media, and technology — and all of 2017's insanity.
Rank #1: 7: Al Sharpton.
The Reverend Al Sharpton, whose career was shaped by the same New York tabloid media that created Donald Trump, said Trump called him soon after the election to praise his analysis on MSNBC of Trump's New York roots. He also said Trump's notoriously thin skin is the result of the fact that he has no cause beyond his own brand. "I don't mind getting the crap beaten out of me if I can turn around and say to Abner Louima, “those cops went to jail for forty years.” And we did," he said on NewsFeed. "So if you're only goal is you — yeah, we all have an ego, yeah we like the spreads in Vanity Fair. But that's not the goal. That's the means to the end. To him, that is the end. So if you're attacking him, you're attacking his goal." Sharpton also talked about another longtime acquaintance on the right, the late Fox News chief Roger Ailes. "I'd see Roger Ailes and we'd talk, and the funniest thing, he would always tell me, 'You know,' and he showed me a picture he took with Malcolm X back in the day, as a reporter. And I used to tease him, I said, 'So you're going to show me the Malcolm X picture. Why don't you show me the Nixon picture?' I said, 'I think you might've interviewed Malcolm. You worked and helped create Nixon.'" And he blamed Hillary Clinton's defeat not on her failure to bring in white voters, but on her lack of effort in rallying black ones. "You lost Michigan, by what, 15,000, 20,000 votes? You could've got that if you mobilized two housing projects or three churches," he said. "You didn't identify with those in identity politics, that's why you had the lowest turnout you had around blacks in a long time."
Rank #2: 5: Lydia Polgreen.
"I think facts and truth are essential to journalism but you need to reckon with emotion. You have to deal with how people feel, otherwise you miss the story." The new editor-in-chief of the renamed HuffPost says she's positioning the site in the spirit of the best of tabloid journalism."The great tabloids were always driven by a sense of outrage, you know a sense of righteous indignation...and had this sensibility of, you know, like, there are people out there that are trying to screw you—and we’re going expose them for it," Lydia Polgreen tells Ben Smith. "The tabloid is fundamentally an emotional form of journalism."Polgreen says she's steering directly into the populist moment, and aiming to write not about, but for, people who feel "screwed" by the existing power structure. She also breaks the news in the interview of a major hire: Jim Rich, who turned the New York Daily News into a confrontational national voice on the 2016 election with a series of front pages mocking, usually, Donald Trump.Polgreen also speaks of her career at the New York Times, about how foreign correspondents were often the first to grasp the power of new media, and of her singular life story — she was raised in Ghana by a Baha'i missionary — and her complicated reaction to being celebrated as the first black lesbian to lead a major publication.Read the full transcript of this conversation.
