Description

Radio Dispatch is a daily podcast covering progressive politics, hosted by siblings John and Molly Knefel. The show features journalists, authors, organizers, and artists, as well as John and Molly's own original reporting and analysis. From civil liberties and privacy to civil rights and intersectional feminism, Radio Dispatch covers the news from a point of view that values recognizing and discussing power and privilege. John and Molly's journalism can be found at Rolling Stone, Buzzfeed, Vice, The New Inquiry and more. Listeners are the most important part of Radio Dispatch, and the show strives to amplify the stories and narratives from those on the other end of the microphone.
