Brian is an incredible host with a knack for explaining complex geopolitical issues in a manner anyone can understand. Funny, witty and informative, one of my new favorite podcasts!

Sounds like I’m being lectured to by a grade school teacher

Fantastic podcast

I love that they give you the history on the topics they cover. As someone who feels like I was born into the chaos it’s phenomenal to get the history on a lot of topics

The best political analysis available.

I look forward with eager anticipation to Brain Beckers podcasts

If you only have time for one news show, it need to be The Socialist Program. They provide coverage of current events in a manner suited for the needs and issues facing the working class and cut through the lies and nonsense force-fed by the corporate media.

Seems like the covering of the Ukrainian crisis is slanted to be push socialism over facts

Really good critical analysis on US Empire. Unfortunately, like so many on the left, they’re trapped by ideology and can’t see how corporate capitalism has rotted out, captured and corrupted the very institutions they trust and want to expand. Ironically it’s the working class that understand and...Read full review »

The smartest, most educated & well articulated whataboutism out there.

Brian Becker and the program’s co-hosts cover international and domestic events from a Marxist perspective, and regularly discuss the history we in the US public schools were never taught. I share this w/ my non-Marxist friends and it is well-received. Happy to support this program and...Read full review »

These peeps don’t mince words about this cruel messed up country.

I’m 5 episodes deep, and really enjoying this podcast! I’ve learned a lot already and have new things to think about too. I’m very new to the left , glad I found this podcast. A big plus, is that even though there are 3 or people on, there’s not cross talk and shouting over each other; which...Read full review »

The Brian cult of personality surrounding the pod and the borderline lib takes kind of kill it for me. Brian is obsessed about the idea of protesting to get what you want, as if last summer we didn’t have the largest protest movement in US history to absolutely no effect. There are other better...Read full review »

Those who laud the western “freedom of press” would do well to question why they never hear these viewpoints from any other major news outlet
dpetelovesyou via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/14/21
I listen to a lot of political podcasts and TSP outshines the vast majority of them. The episodes are well organized/produced, informative, and direct. Commentary is pointed and entertaining, and I’m always left having gained insight and knowledge. A really great show.

I guess Mr. Becker doesn’t care about human rights unless they are violated by capitalism. How can he say there is no evidence of force labor in China. The people are suffering tremendously. Not only capitalism is a problem in our society but also inability to self criticism. How i wish Michael...Read full review »

TSP is a phenomenal show with great structure, guests, information, and analysis! I am a regular listener and the TSP team never disappoints.

I love this podcast. The brilliant host and one frequent guest (sorry bad with names…) make the history, economics and theory behind socialist politics easy to consume and very accessible. I learn so much in every single episode. I just wish there were more!

Enjoy this podcast, can’t wait for upcoming episodes.

Fantastic source for a real progressive and leftist tale on the events of the world.
walkface via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/12/21
Topics are captivating and insightful. Real news minus the fluff and party affiliation.
Peace226 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/04/21
Lillian House was impressive! James P Cannon would beproud of your defense!
moose in adelaide via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/27/21
A really thorough roundup of the latest news, through a socialist and anti-imperialist lens. It’s a nice way to keep up to date on current events without having to suffer through CNN, Fox News or (insert any other big news outlet)
sputnikaroundthemoon via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/26/21
Fantastic analysis and up to date news! Love the different types of segments, history, economics all dissected through a socialist lens. Not an easy thing to come by
jbaloney1966 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/10/21
Deep analysis and clear eyed delivery of the news of the day, placed within essential historical context. This is THE conversation America needs to be having with itself.
dpfeif80 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/03/21
I am so glad Brian, Nicole and Walter are back. I've been so out of touch since Loud and Clear ended. I've missed a real look at and discussion of the events going on that no one is talking about, or are misrepresenting. If thats what you are looking for then Brian and Co. are who you...Read full review »

Not only a good breadth of, but also in-depth news that matters for everyday common people
chicham99 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/13/21
My go-to source for news and analysis. Clarity you wont find anywhere else
John Prys via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/10/21
A real source to analyze the way society works. Informative, entertaining and easy to follow.
no need for alias(rodrigo) via Apple Podcasts · Norway · 01/09/21
Was sad to hear Loud and Clear abruptly cancelled but the Social Program in my opinion has to date been a major upgrade.
GM Hindsight via Apple Podcasts · Sweden · 01/02/21
Very strong analysis, incredible knowledge of history, amazing guests!
Comrademichael98 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/02/20
Great podcast to prepare for the Biden presidency!
wnggtg via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/29/20
This is the rebirth of Loud & Clear w/ Brian Becker that formerly aired on Sputnik Radio, now launched independently. Hands down my favorite news & politcal analysis show around. Brian, Nicole, & Walter bring a unique perspective as not only journalists, but activitists that fight for...Read full review »

Was a die-hard listener of Brian’s old show for years, but this new program is making better use of all his talents
PonoPri via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/11/20
Really excited that the former L&C team is back to bring us more of their great news coverage and analysis. This show is essential listening for all progressives in the US!
Adam Staudacher via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/10/20
This is a continuation of the cancelled podcast Loud & Clear with Brian Becker which was hands down my go-to for socialist analysis of current events and corporate spin. Brian and his guests have an uncommon depth of knowledge and experience.
