About this app

LeftTimes is a high-quality aggregator of articles, podcasts and videos, bringing together content that is balanced across issues areas and represents a breadth of perspectives. We feature a limited number of publications so as to force ourselves to only pick those consistently producing informative, in-depth, thoughtful, compelling, and moral content.

Contents spans from news, politics and policy to culture, art and identity - balanced across the US and global perspectives - and covering everything the economy, international relations, the environment, and social justice. All content is curated from a select set of progressive publications including magazines, think tanks, investigative journalists, blogs, research institutes and more.

Our goal is to make it easy for readers to discover and follow some of the most interesting and thoughtful writers and reporters across the left. We want to make it easy for people to discover, follow and read the best content being produced by the most interesting and thoughtful writers and reporters across the left.

Philosophically, LeftTimes is metamodern, seeing Green Social Liberalism as the socioeconomic system upon which the next (r)evolutions of society must be built. The distribution of publications reflect this ideological perspective – being predominantly progressive, social democratic, and democratic socialist – with a smattering of liberal, communist, anarchist, and libertarian perspectives.

We are always adding new sources to our aggregator, tweaking our algorithms, and trying to discover the best up-and-coming writers. Some of the sources we pull from include:
- Baffler Magazine
- The Black Youth Project
- Boston Review
- Center for Economic Policy Research
- Current Affairs
- Democracy Now!
- Dissent Magazine
- E-International Relations
- Evonomics
- Fairness & Accuracy in Reporting
- The Guardian
- Grist
- The Intercept
- Informed Comment
- In These Times
- Jacobin
- The Long Run
- The Nation
- N+1
- ProPublica
- The Real News Network
- ROAR Magazine
- Salvage Zone
- Social Europe
- Them.us
- Viewpoint Magazine
- Wear Your Voice
- Yale E360
- and many more!

We have only just begun to build out our news feed and there are many more sources and authors we have yet to add or even discover. We would love your help!

Great selection of articles. However, the app recently started cutting out and sending me to the mobile website every time. So, I can no longer select a tab, such as Economy, because the app does not stay open to reveal the tabs and the articles.

Fantastic idea but the app is really slow to load the main screen of stories and crashes a lot. Please fix it and I'd start using it every day.

Really mind opening, and respectable, true integrity driven journalism! I love the quality array of media choices one of my favorites is "the intercept," which blows the doors of most other journalistic periodicals!
