Podcasts have become an easily accessible way to keep up with current news and continuously learn. If you’re anything like me, you have an ever-growing list of podcasts to listen to and your “new episodes” playlist is never empty. Here’s a narrowed down list of nine podcasts that should be on every young politico’s subscription list.

The Ben Shapiro Show

Ben Shapiro analyzes the day’s national and local headlines, advocates traditional American values, and offers access to some of the biggest conservative thought leaders in the country

We the People

National Constitution Center president and CEO Jeffrey Rosen hosts “We The People,” a weekly balanced conversation with leading scholars of all viewpoints on contemporary and historical topics about the United States Constitution. 

The Remnant

In “The Remnant with Jonah Goldberg,” the National Review senior editor and AEI Fellow enlists a Cannonball Run style cast of stars, has-beens and never-weres to address the most pressing issues of the day and of all-time…Mixing history, pop culture, rank-punditry, political philosophy, and, at times, shameless book-plugging, Goldberg and guests will have the kinds of conversations we wish they had on cable-TV shout shows.

The Liberty Files

National Review’s David French, a longtime Constitutional lawyer, examines challenges to individual liberty in America. French brings on a variety of guests to tell their stories about government overreach. He offers his own insights into how lovers of freedom can fight back against Leviathan.

Mad Dogs and Englishmen

National Review’s Charles C.W. Cooke and Kevin D. Williamson discuss whatever they feel like discussing this week.

First Mondays

First Mondays is an entertaining podcast about the Supreme Court, co-hosted by Ian Samuel and Dan Epps.


With the writing of the Constitution in 1787, the framers set out a young nation’s highest ideals. And ever since, we’ve been fighting over it — what is in it and what was left out. At the heart of these arguments is the story of America…Lillian Cunningham returns with this series exploring the Constitution and the people who framed and reframed it — revolutionaries, abolitionists, suffragists, teetotalers, protesters, justices, presidents – in the ongoing struggle to form a more perfect union across a vast and diverse land.

Pod Save America

Four former aides to President Obama — Jon Favreau, Dan Pfeiffer, Jon Lovett, and Tommy Vietor — are joined by journalists, politicians, comedians, and activists for a freewheeling conversation about politics, the press and the challenges posed by the Trump presidency.

Mass Ave

Mass Ave brings you conservative insight from the steps of Capitol Hill and is a product of the Heritage Foundation. Founded in 1973, The Heritage Foundation is a research and educational institution—a think tank—whose mission is to formulate and promote conservative public policies based on the principles of free enterprise, limited government, individual freedom, traditional American values, and a strong national defense.

Whether you’re commuting to work or cleaning the house, these podcasts will keep you up-to-date with the political happenings of the country.

Each of these podcasts are available on iTunes as well as several other podcast platforms.

Emily W
FFL Cabinet
