Liberal political podcast, Pod Save America, is hitting the road and stopping at Cobb Energy Centre on Thursday, June 21 at 7 p.m. to have live, no-nonsense conversations about politics, the press, and the Trump presidency. They call it Pod Tours America because they think that’s clever.
Tickets will go on sale Friday, March 16 at 10 a.m. Tickets range from $25 – $99, plus applicable fees, and will be available at www.Ticketmaster.com, by calling 800-735-3000 or at the Cobb Energy Centre Box Office. A limited number of student discount tickets are available for purchase in person at the box office with a student ID.
The podcast, co-hosted by Jon Favreau, Jon Lovett, Dan Pfeiffer and Tommy Vietor has been downloaded more than 195,000,000 times in just over a year and was dubbed “the voice in blue America’s head” by New York Times Magazine.
Previous Pod Save America guests include President Barack Obama, Senator Hillary Clinton, late-night hosts Jimmy Kimmel and Seth Meyers, grassroots activists, leading journalists, singer John Legend, Golden Warriors Coach Steve Kerr, Democratic Leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Sen. Cory Booker, and many more.
Favreau, Lovett, Pfeiffer, and Vietor all served in key roles in the Obama White House. They have expertise in political campaigns (both winning and losing), political strategy, speechwriting and foreign policy. They are blunt – and at times profane – about their disgust with the Trump administration, but are equally hard on the Democratic Party when it screws up. You’ll laugh. You might cry. And you’ll leave motivated to fight for our democracy.
