About this app

This biweekly show is a beautifully executed compilation combining the absolute
best in left-leaning political news and commentary with great music to glue it all
together. Each edition we choose a political theme and bring you a variety of
stories and perspectives from an array of sources on that theme.

This application provides instant access to the entire back catalog of this
award-nominated show stretching back in the archives to 2006 without taking up
space on your phone.

Sources for this compilation show include Countdown with Keith Olberman and
The Rachel Maddow Show from MSNBC. NPR shows such as On the Media,
Radio Lab, This American Life, Wait wait don't tell me!, Fresh Air, and All things
considered. Air America Radio shows such as Break Room Live, Ring of Fire
with Bobby Kennedy and The Inside Story with Ana Marie Cox. I also include The
Young Turks, Thom Hartmann, Democracy NOW!, Counterspin from,
Mother Jones Radio, Slate magazine, Alex Jones, Randi Rhodes, Radio
Ecoshock, Le Show, Real Time with Bill Maher, and

If you like any of the above programs it's almost certain that you will love Best of
the Left! Even if you already listen to all of the sources above you'll still like BotL
because it is a show that is truly greater than the sum of it's parts.

(Please note, not all features are available for all episodes.)

Excited to check out this app but upon opening it up, the most recent news post was 2016?!? I you can't design a better first impression than 5-year old news, it is not going to work for me.

I think access to membership info and verification of said benefits would be great. I'm a paying member and I need to know.
