NPR Politics Podcast

NPR is one of the most trusted names in American media, and this political podcast from them plays no favorites.

The podcast does such a good job giving both sides of the aisle a fair shake that they get attacked from the Left and the Right – often about the same coverage!

Regardless of your political leanings, if you want the truth (and nothing but it), NPR is the way to go. The entertainment value might not be the same here, and you won’t deal with shouting hosts with hot takes, but the educational value is through the roof.

If you’re looking to become a better-informed citizen of the US, the NPR politics podcast is for you.
