Best way to get world news and super smart, experienced analysis. They are both such kind, thoughtful, intelligent and funny humans. Wouldn’t expect any less from senior Obama staffers. My fave podcast (with Pod Save America of course, ha) - they keep me sane while trying to stay informed

Dallas Awad via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/19/24
It became completely impossible to listen to this podcast. Its gone way too far in defending and finding excuses for islamic jihadists. The analysis and points became so shallow and predefined, to the point that the narrative is absolutely predictable. I wish hosts listen and explore more...Read full review »

One of my favourite podcasts. The hosts are well informed, analytical, energetic and refreshingly balanced fair in their analysis of world events.

Gives tons of information and the hosts have great chemistry. All the guest are engaged and interesting.
Vsgbeatrice via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/10/24
The content is superb but unfortunately it’s hard to listen to because Tommy always sounds like it’s 4:50 pm on a Friday and he can’t wait to get done and go home, while poor Ben constantly stumbles over his words and his thoughts stutter as well. I’ve listen to every episode from the start, but...Read full review »

Listen, if we continue to be a democracy, we almost know what happens here. This podcast covers the world in a way that nobody else does.

Love the depth of knowledge from this pod. Highly recommend.

Ben and Tommy routinely bring the smartest, most thoughtful commentary and insight into global geopolitics. They’re a breath of fresh air.
wackyiraqi via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/08/24
This is really only two episodes worth of material (max) without the ads and all the kiddin’ around by the hosts. However, it is nice to hear Tommy having fun on a pod.

This Rog fellow was annoying. Couldn’t listen through the whole series. Your regular podcast with Ben Rhodes is great.
Sam#% via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/06/24
Hi, I enjoy the show. I find Tommy’s and Ben’s take on the Middle East as honest and transparent as I’m sure is possible for them. I don’t have Twitter and I’m not sure how else or where else to ask this question. I listened to an episode of the death panel podcast today titled ‘letters from...Read full review »

Crooked Media has good taste.
LiberalTearsYourThroatOut via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/04/24
Their anti-Israel bias is clear. They don’t appear to take Iranian proxy terrorism and Iran’s hegemonic aspirations seriously.

Love the real world experience and personal insights that the PSTW team bring to the discussion of current world events.
Brootal via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/27/24
Prove me wrong, but currently this show has spent more time talking about what’s going on with a figurehead family of a minor European power than talking about the United States neighbor and critical partner in trade, security and other means. And complaining about the situation is not talking...Read full review »
Racoon Hail via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/27/24
I like these guys but there’s the world corrupt pod, with that Roger guy? Awful. All he does is tell jokes and say sarcastic and childish stuff. Tommy tries hard to mix history, politics, and a little humor but this Roger clown is nothing but a lame joke and cliche spitting machine. Skip the...Read full review »
pdw86 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/25/24
One of the host's sounds drunk, slurs his speech & is not a helpful asset for the show. I used to live in Saudi. For me, the best way to sum it is that if I had the cosmic ability to destroy everything this evil place represents, I most likely would. To be a woman in Islam is to be...Read full review »

Good content from Tommy and Ben! I like to balance their left leaning takes on current events by listening to Ben Shapiro’s show to get the full context and see both points of view as both podcasts tend to cover the same things from different angles. With the partisan nature of our world, truly...Read full review »

Prince Harry either lied in his autobiography or on his visa application, if the latter it’s a flagrant illegal attempt to live in the USA on the basis of a lie, why doesn’t this matter to you? I can understand an argument for changing the rules but that wasn’t your point. I am not sure if being...Read full review »

I appreciate the fair and impartial coverage on events unfolding in Gaza. Thank you Ben, for always speaking your mind and being a voice for the voiceless.

You guys are great but I don’t think anyone understand The severity of what biden has allowed Netanyahu to do. The repercussions of the attack by Netanyahu with the support of America paid by my tax money to commit genocide of my own ppl has made me take a step back.

Ben relies too much on his alleged deep personal connections to figures he discusses. Ok you FaceTimed with Navalny once, this does not exactly blow me away as a source of insight. He shows off like that all the time but the result doesn’t seem like he has any special insight. Ideas are more...Read full review »
lvivianka via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/22/24
A thoughtful, well-done pod. Both are a tad naïve, and it becomes apparent why Ben never scored the top job in the Obama administration. He’s a significant voice in the room while making consequential decisions, but thankfully never the last. But hey, maybe I’m just a bit more from the realist...Read full review »

For the past three weeks you have stopped covering the biggest international story in the world and a war where our tax dollars are enabling war crimes. Please do your job!

Thank you Tommy, Ben, and Max for your thorough, reasoned, and fair insights into ongoing developments in the Middle East. As a Democrat and emergency humanitarian worker abroad in that region, I’m glad you are holding the Biden administration to account re: the devastating violence in Gaza. (I...Read full review »

In seemingly such a tumultuous time, Tommy and Ben have a no-nonsense approach to navigating the current geo-political matters at hand with clarity. Thank you for your advocacy for peace and life.

Very bad people. Wolves in sheep’s clothing. Masking their evil intentions with fake righteousness.

Hi, please stop uploading every ‘dissident at the doorstep’ episode on this channel. Putting the first one and allowing listeners to get a taste and see if they want to listen to the rest is fine, just dropping an entire podcast series in another podcasts feed is not. If I wanted to listen I am...Read full review »

I’m really happy I found this podcast, and it’s really one I recommend to others who are interested in foreign affairs in current times from a certain perspective because it makes you seriously think about if and how much the US should be involved in foreign affairs issues. A takeaway from the...Read full review »

Longtime listener but just can’t stomach the willful blindness to the concerning phenomenon of jihadists in the Arab world and specifically Iran-led proxies. Seriously, listen to them - the podcast is ignoring a major issue and even condoning it??
Danaeoren via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/05/24
The best show currently being put out by Crooked Media, Tommy and Ben are wonderful. They obviously worked for the Obama administration and support the Democratic party, but I really appreciate that they are honest about when they disagree with actions/policy Democrats have/are taking. The recent...Read full review »

I like the show, but why is it so hard to say Jihadism is a cancer on the world? You can feel bad innocent Palestinian children are dying but recognize that Palestinians on the majority support the genocide (using the word properly) of Israelis. Say it. Sam Harris’s podcast is a better option...Read full review »

As a long time listener of Crooked Media content, in 2024, Pod Save the World is by far the show most anchored in humanity and reality. While discussion of American wealth &amp; politics gives out of touch Hunger Games “Capital” vibes, this show maintains logic, reason and massive heart. Ben...Read full review »

Really enjoying Dissident at the Doorstep - the reporting is excellent and the narrative pacing is well done. I appreciate the less well known context of China’s recent political history (and the role of resistance that the barefoot lawyers played) and how it dovetails with American policy - lots...Read full review »
mobizzledizzle via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/29/24
Generally enjoy the podcast. Enjoyed the initial episode of Dissident. However, I’m interested in his American life and how he ended up participating in 1/6. But you’re really taking the LONG way there with a story of escaping a communist regime. The whole thing feels like a bait and switch

Definitely the best of Crooked Media. I learn each time I listen. Thank you.

radar3699 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/21/24
They failed to *explain* why Hamas attacked Israel, stating there was no excuse for it. An explanation is different than an excuse. No reference to the occupation. Ben talked about his friends in Israel who are being bombarded. What, no Palestinian friends, Ben? Also, we *have* been calling...Read full review »
