We're days away from the 2020 presidential election, which is shaping up to be one of the most consequential elections in our lifetime. That may sound hyperbolic, but with no end to COVID-19 in sight, a vacant Supreme Court seat to fill, widespread protests for racial justice, and wildfires ravaging cities across the United States, we live in a constant state of upheaval. With so many news headlines every day, it can be hard to keep up. Thankfully, there are podcasts that sift through the noise and stay informed about the issues and policies impacting our lives.
The Trump presidency has been a barrage of conservative policies, racist rhetoric, political scandals, and (mis)information. But these 10 podcasts have helped listeners dissect the last four years through thoughtful discourse, astute political and cultural analysis, and some much-needed context. If you need help navigating policy before November 3, or if you're simply looking to add a few smart new voices to your weekly media consumption, check out these podcasts that have been crucial in our understanding of the Trump era.
