What is Lever Time?

From LeverNews.com — Lever Time is the flagship podcast from the investigative news outlet The Lever. It’s a political commentary show done in the classic style of morning radio — but, like, better. And smarter. And hopefully funnier.

Hosted by award-winning journalist, Oscar-nominated writer, and Bernie Sanders' 2020 speechwriter David Sirota, Lever Time features exclusive reporting from The Lever’s newsroom, high-profile guest interviews, expert analysis from the sharpest minds in media, and biting political comedy.

Stop — Lever Time.

Hey, look — there are plenty of podcasts out there about news and politics. Most of them are like Pod Save America. They tell you what's happening, who's involved and how you should feel about it. And so far Pod has not saved America.

But here's the thing: there aren't many podcasts that dig into why the news happens or tell the truth about why politicians and those in power so often make corrupt decisions. That's where we come in.

I'm David Sirota, host of the new podcast Lever Time. Where we expose the cartoonish corruption within the American political system and try to do so without losing our minds. I'm an award-winning journalist author, Oscar-nominated writer on the movie Don't Look Up, and the speech writer for Bernie Sanders’ 2020 presidential campaign. I'm also the founder of The Lever — a reader supported investigative news outlet reporting on the people and corporations manipulating the levers of power.

Each week Lever Time will hold those in power accountable. Featuring exclusive reporting from The Lever’s newsroom, high-profile guest interviews, and expert analysis from the sharpest minds in politics. We'll do stuff like have in-depth conversations about Amazon's union-busting tactics, we'll interview guests like Academy award-winning writer/director, Adam McKay, and we'll leave scathing voicemails for Senator Joe Manchin. Because someone needs to troll the worst people on the planet.

Join us as we speak truth to power while laughing at everything, including ourselves. So I guess, “Laughing truth to power.” Does that make sense?
