Calling all Friends of the Pod! The Crooked Media crew is coming to Phoenix, bringing Pod Tours America to Comerica Theatre on Saturday, February 10, 2018.
The evening will feature the co-hosts of the twice-a-week, chart-topping progressive podcast, Pod Save America. Jon Favreau, Tommy Vietor, Jon Lovett, and Dan Pfeiffer candidly discuss the current state of politics, sparring with humor, empathy, and brutal honesty about the latest news. For the live episode, they'll also bring special (yet unannounced) guests to join the panel.
The four friends and former Obama administration staffers started the podcast Keeping it 1600 in March 2016 at the start of the 2016 presidential primaries. They carried on through the election of Donald J. Trump in November, and began addressing a political future unlike anything they had seen before.
