This podcast is a beautifully executed compilation combining the absolute best in left-leaning political news, commentary and occasional comedy with great music to pull it all together. In each edition, I choose a political theme and deliver a variety of stories and perspectives from an array of sources on that theme.
By the way, this is an ENHANCED PODCAST with cool features built in which is fun but that means that it's not compatible with everyone's audio player. For the STANDARD MP3 feed visit BestOfTheLeft.com to subscribe (even if you still want to use iTunes to manage your subscription).
