On Roll Call’s Political Theater Podcast, you won’t always get what you want. You won’t always get what you need. But you’ll never be bored. We hope. With that in mind, here are a few of our favorite podcasts from the year that was, which just happened to be our first.
[Subscribe to Political Theater at RollCall.com]Matt Bai, Jason Reitman and Jay Carson talking about Gary Hart and their film “The Frontrunner.”
Houstonian and political reporter Alex Roarty and Inside Elections’ Leah Askarinam on the Texas Senate race, Lone Star demographics and whether being a Whataburger partisan helped Beto O’Rourke against his White Castle-loving-opponent Ted Cruz.
When is it funny and when does it bomb? Washington Post humor writer Alexandra Petri muses about the thin line between laughing and cringing when it comes to cracking jokes about politics, among politicians at political functions.
CQ Roll Call staff writer Clyde McGrady breaking down “Desperate Class TV” — when shows as different as Donald Glover’s “Atlanta” and Roseanne Barr’s rebooted (since retooled, sans Roseanne) “Roseanne” reflect the political, cultural and economic anxieties of the era of Trump.
But wait, there’s more! We did 49 episodes of Political Theater this year, and there was no way to capture them all in a year-end wrap-up. You can find all of our podcasts on our Political Theater page on RollCall.com and by subscribing wherever you get your podcasts. Happy New Year!
