Pod Save America Set for HBO


The hit political podcast Pod Save America is being brought to HBO this fall as a series of hour-long specials.

Pod Save America is a twice-weekly podcast hosted by Jon Favreau, Jon Lovett, Dan Pfeiffer and Tommy Vietor, former aides to President Obama, who are joined by journalists, politicians, comedians and activists for a conversation about politics, the press and the challenges posed by the Trump presidency. HBO is working with Crooked Media—the company founded by Favreau, Lovett and Vietor—on the specials, which will follow along on the campaign trail for the upcoming midterm elections in the fall.

“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 Casey Bloys, the president of HBO programming. “We’re excited to share the irreverent and entertaining insights of these savvy observers with the HBO audience.”
