Battleground with Amanda Litman and F...

Battleground is a podcast for people who want answers to questions about politics they didn't even realize they should be asking. Faiz Shakir ran Bernie Sanders’ 2020 presidential campaign, and Amanda Litman founded Run for Something, an organization that recruits and trains young progressives to run for state and local offices. But even after spending their entire professional careers working in politics, the hosts of Battleground still have questions about the ways our political system complicates itself — like, “who decides what the cable news narrative will be on a given topic?”, or “if everyone hates political consultants, why do they always run campaigns?” Listen every Thursday, as Amanda and Faiz try to answer questions like these by speaking to (or debating with) some of the most knowledgeable people in politics.
