FiveThirtyEight Politics

FiveThirtyEight had their credibility take a little bit of a nosedive in the aftermath of the 2016 election (after guaranteeing that there was zero chance Hillary Clinton could lose the election), but they have been working overtime to earn the trust of their listeners ever since.

With a podcast like this, they are back to being a trusted voice in the political community again.

Certainly still leaning a bit to the left, this podcast has become more centrist over the last two years. The partisan attacks have been shelved for the most part. Instead, they have been replaced with data-driven viewpoints and analysis that you likely aren’t going to find anywhere else in the political podcasts spectrum.

Numbers, data, and verifiable information is the name of the game with the FiveThirtyEight podcast, more than any other political podcasts out there. If you want the numbers and the data more than an opinion from talking heads with an agenda, this is where you’re going to want to listen.
