With the 2020 presidential election around the corner, Crooked Media’s popular podcasts Pod Save America and Lovett or Leave It are hitting the road.
Pod Save America: Live and Lovett or Leave It: Live on Tour will hit a collective 17 dates across the U.S. beginning with Lovett or Leave It: Live on Tour at Hancher Auditorium in Iowa City, Iowa on Jan. 30. The shows will continue through San Diego, Seattle, Atlanta, Detroit, Nashville and more.
The podcast co-hosts Jon Favreau, Jon Lovett, Tommy Vietor and Dan Pfeiffer are aiming their election year tour towards battleground states including Ohio, Kentucky, Wisconsin and more. Pod Save America: Live will close out the collection of dates on Aug. 23 at Knight Theater in Charlotte, N.C.
“It’s a big year, and we can’t wait to spend part of it on the road, helping people turn their anxiety over the election into action that will help determine the outcome. Our goal is to share some laughs, meet new friends of the pod, and give people everything they need to make a difference in November,” the co-hosts said in a joint statement.
While Pod Save America focuses primarily on the progressive political movement, Lovett or Leave It: Live on Tour brings the hilarious and creative week-in-review show hosted Lovett, along with a rotating panel of comedians, actors, journalists and some of the many, many famous ‘Friends of the Pod’ to live audiences across the country. Past guests on Lovett or Leave It: Live on Tour have included Stacey Abrams, Senator Amy Klobuchar, Desus & Mero, Guy Branum, Quinta Brunson and more.
