The ‘Pod Save America’ team looks to save Boston this week

 
 

Jon Favreau, Tommy Vietor, Jon Lovett and Dan Pfeiffer host a live edition of their successful podcast, plus ‘Lovett Or Leave It’ at the Wang

While the daily political firestorm continues to burn around us, a certain quartet comprised of former Obama staffers are coming to Boston to try and help us — nay, save us — from the roaring flames of insanity.

Returning to the city for the first time since the Pod Save America packed-house gathering at Boston Calling last year, Jon Lovett brings his wildly successful Lovett Or Leave It podcast to The Boch Center Wang Theatre on Wednesday (April 10) to sit down with presidential candidate Andrew Yang, activist Cecile Richards, political analyst Sam Stein, and comedian Janelle James to discuss the latest news, and take aim at “the endless frustrations and absurdities of our broken political nightmare factory.”

Much like they did in Allston last spring, Pod Save America, the also wildly popular and sought-after podcast, will close out the stay in the city on Thursday (April 11)  as host Jon Favreau, accompanied by Lovett, Tommy Vietor, and Dan Pfeiffer, sit down with Suffolk County District Attorney Rachael Rollins, as they do what they do best, and talk about politics, the press, and the daily struggles and challenges presented by the current administration.

The two shows bring together humor and analysis like no other, and if you’re a fan of political shop talk, and an electric crowd energy, these live performances are not to be missed.
