Announcing: The All-New PM101 Podcast

A team of DC insiders is launching the first-ever political podcast of a live audience Q&A show.

Politics+Media 101 (PM101) is a nonpartisan, 5x per week live event that started on the Clubhouse app.

Almost overnight, it grew to be the app’s largest political show—drawing up to 30,000 live listeners and participants every day.

Over the past four months, the show’s founders have curated over 150 incredible conversations, and recorded their favoriteswhich will soon be released to the world for the first time.

The show will now also be a podcast with its novel, live Q&A format, top-flight content, and A-list bookings—including 4 Pulitzer Prize winners, 8 Members of Congress, an Obama Secretary of Defense,  and a Trump National Security Advisor. 

One major feature is that listeners will be able to participate in future shows, which are all taped live, 5x per week, with a real-time audience Q+A option.

Make sure you sign up for the PM101 e-mail list to receive exclusive event invitations, past episodes, and notifications when news breaks and we start discussions with experts in real time.
