Pod Save America, the political podcast starring four former Obama staffers is coming to the Lone Star State. On December 1, the podcast announced its 2018 Pod Tours America dates via a Facebook video — and it includes shows in Austin, Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio.
Billed as "the podcast everyone's listening about," Pod Save America takes twice-weekly deep dives into political and policy issues. Former Obama speechwriters Jon Favreau and Jon Lovett, former national security spokesman Tommy Vietor, and former senior advisor Dan Pfeiffer rotate through the day's news, providing an insider's look inside the Beltway. The show also features rotating guests from across the political spectrum who contextualize the issues.
Since launching in early 2017, Pod Save America has found a captive and fevered audience, propelling it to top of the iTunes podcast chart (it's currently No. 5). In March 2018, the podcast will bring their show to the Moody Theater stage for two performances.
Pod Tours America's Texas tour dates include:
- Houston — March 8 at Jones Hall for the Performing Arts
- Austin — March 9 at ACL Live at the Moody Theatre (8 pm and 10 pm shows)
- San Antonio — March 10 at Majestic Theatre
- Dallas — March 11 at Majestic Theater
Tickets for the shows go on sale Monday, December 4, and range in price depending on venue. Each performance also features a limited number of $25 student tickets available with a valid student ID.
