Thoughtful progressive politics in Missouri

By RobWBartel - May 05 2017
Read more
Very happy to see this arrive, as a counterbalance to the also good MoLeg podcast from Missouri Times. This one has much better production values, and better aligns with my own political philosophy, but no matter what side of the spectrum you're on I think you'll find it a thoughtful perspective on "progressive" issues in the state without bombast and insults.

Fresh Air

It is truly a breath of fresh air to hear the insight of Jon and Lauren. It's important to remember, in a red state with a red legislature, that there are intelligent, progressive representatives in Jeff City. This podcast is a reminder that progressive voices are not going unheard. Podgressive is an insightful podcast involving local and national political news and is both informative and entertaining. Highly recommended.
