Lovett or Leave It


Thursday, Jan 30, 2020 at 8:00 pm

A week in review with a live audience. It’s great.

 
Each week, former Obama speechwriter Jon Lovett and a panel of comedians, actors, journalists, and some of the many, many famous Friends of the Pod appear before a live audience to break down the week’s biggest news and make fun of whatever bullshit came out of our insane political nightmare factory. Quizzes! Impressions! Shouting at cable news clips! And everyone’s favorite: nuanced discussion. New episodes every Saturday.
 
Jon Lovett Bio
Jon Lovett is a former presidential speechwriter, as well as a TV writer, podcast host, and straight shooter WIDELY respected on both sides. In 2017, he founded Crooked Media with Jon Favreau and Tommy Vietor, to build a progressive media network with shows, analysis, and sweet, sweet content that informs, entertains, and inspires action.

There, he co-hosts “Pod Save America” and hosts “Lovett or Leave It,” two of the most popular political podcasts in the country. Before Crooked, he served as a presidential speechwriter in the Obama White House, co-created a comedy on NBC called “1600 Penn” (which was cancelled after one perfect season), and wrote speeches for Hillary Clinton. Jon was also once named “Washington’s funniest celebrity” before he left the nation’s capital forever.
