Left, Right and Center was originally my letter L until I gave up finding a letter J. Josh Barro hosts Left, Right and Center. Desperate times call for desperate measures.
Civil yet provocative, LRC is a news program that focuses on examining the issues from all sides. Josh Barro is the moderator, and he represents the center. Rich Lowry represents the right, and Katrina vanden Heuvel represents the left. They usually have an expert guest as well. They talk about the week's political news.
Category: News and Politics (That's the most perfectly nailed category so far!)
What's the time commitment here?
One hour, once a week.
Politically, I am distinctly moderate. I get very frustrated with the logical fallacies in most news shows. LRC is a little drier than my usual podcast, but it is refreshing to hear a well-rounded, respectful, intelligent group of people discussing the week's news. Perhaps democracy has a chance after all.
Full disclosure, I listen to this show about 50% of the time. It definitely represents the 'mature' side of my podcast experience.
You can listen to it here, or wherever you listen to your podcasts.
