Lovett Or Leave It - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Lovett Or Leave It
Jon Lovett is a straight shooter widely respected on all sides. He earned this reputation (which is seriously fantastic, ask people) as a speechwriter for Hillary Clinton and as a presidential speechwriter in the Obama White House. Jon has written truly excellent speeches, really great, on a range of policy issues. He helped write the president’s annual remarks to the White House Correspondents Dinner. Many people say Jon is one of the funniest guys to do this. The jokes are just terrific. In the years since he’s become a really big league writer in Hollywood. He had a hit sitcom on NBC called “1600 Penn” which was cancelled by some crooked, disgusting people. Totally rigged deal. Also Jon has a great brain. He went to Williams, OK? One of the top guys.

Lovett or Leave It is a weekly podcast that marries the entertainment and humor of a variety show with the substance and information of a Sunday Show. It is helmed by Jon Lovett, Pod Save America co-host and a "straight shooter" who previously served as a speechwriter to President Obama and then-Senator Hillary Clinton. Each week, Lovett breaks down the week’s news with a rotating panel of comedians, journalists, activists, elected officials and other Friends of the Pod. Lovett or Leave It is Crooked Media’s only podcast that is recorded in front of a live audience every week, which Lovett demanded to fulfill the applause quota in his contract. The show also provides an interactive experience where audience members participate in games and segments in real-time. The show concludes with a few spins of the "Rant Wheel" in order to find out which blood-boiling topic the panel will create a diatribe about on the fly. Lovett’s unique skillset and credibility in comedy and politics, combined with the rotating panel of sharp and funny guests, provides the audience with a space where they can laugh at the overwhelming absurdity of the news cycle.
