Daily Kos Podcasts

Daily Kos has expanded into podcasting! We produce two weekly shows: The Brief, co-hosted by Markos Moulitsas and Kerry Eleveld, and How Did We Get Here? hosted by Cara Zelaya. 

What is The Brief?

The Brief, a one-hour weekly political conversation hosted by Markos Moulitsas and Kerry Eleveld, highlights on-the-ground members of the progressive movement and Daily Kos itself. Daily Kos site members may follow The Brief as a tag on the website to keep up with all posts on our episodes.

The Brief is broadcast live on our YouTube channel and Facebook page (currently, Tuesdays at 1:30 PT). Then it is distributed through traditional podcast channels, YouTube, and Facebook Live. 

Past episodes of The Brief are now streaming on all podcast platforms near you!

How to support organizations featured on episodes of The Brief?

Site supporters have asked how to contribute to the excellent on-the-ground efforts of the organizations whose leaders we've interviewed on The Brief. If you're interested, please check out our special ActBlue page that lists those organizations and provides a route for contributing to their programs.

What is How Did We Get Here? 

A weekly documentary-type conversation hosted by Cara Zelaya, How Did We Get Here? offers a thorough analysis of one specific issue every month from a progressive perspective. Each episode examines the systemic ways that our government has created a broken system, who that system disproportionately affects, and how we can counteract and move forward towards a more fair society. 

How Did We Get Here? includes interviews with experts regarding the specific issue of the month and is distributed with video via YouTube and Facebook and through traditional podcast channels.
