After three years of weekly episodes—that’s 181 shows, if you’re counting—the Mother Jones Podcast team has decided to switch things up for the next couple of months, as we, like you, emerge from a year that has thrown up enormous challenges, journalistically, politically, and personally. It’s time for Summer!
We’ve always strived to bring you the very best of our newsroom, and that includes the deeply reported stories and characters that our journalists to life. So, starting soon, we’re giving you more of the standout stories that aim to make sense of the world. We’re talking about the heroic families struggling to make it across the border, the champions of democracy who are fighting the GOP’s efforts to suppress voting rights, and the Washington, D.C. insiders who’d rather you not know much about them at all. Some of it will be fun, some of it will be serious, but we hope that all of it is clarifying: our best investigations, in an easy to access read-aloud form, produced by our storytelling partners at Audm. Think “audio book” for our long-form classics. It’s all work that we’re immensely proud of and excited to share with you in full.
And the best part: you don’t have to do a thing. We’ll space them out, so instead of a weekly show, expect a biweekly update in your podcast feed. In the meantime, we’re hard at work thinking of big ideas to make the show even better. We’ll be back to our regularly scheduled programming as Summer moves into fall. Until then, just sit back, relax, and enjoy some of the best of what our reporters have to offer.
