The Al Franken Podcast
Author: ASF ProductionsSubscribed: 9,813Played: 477,844
A five-time Emmy winning SNL comedy writer/producer, joins a four-time #1 NYT bestselling author, a three-time highest-rated national progressive radio host, a two-time Grammy winning artist, and a former US Senator. So, it gets a little crowded in the booth when Al talks public policy and sometimes political comedy with notable guests. Think “The Daily” without the resources of the NYTimes.

I love Al Franken. I grew up watching him on Saturday night live. Funny and really smart guy. It’s bull crap he got screwed by the idiots in congress
Hi Al you have the best podcast. It's informative, interesting and entertaining Your interview with Paul Krugman was the best explanation that also offered the available opinions that l have ever heard on the current debt ceiling crisis. i hope President Biden and Mr. Schumer were listening and will take action immediately Thanks Al.
If there is some mechanism by which Al gets to see comments posted on this platform, then let me just say (to Al) that this was a masterful episode of a brilliant podcast. Thanks
How about if we stop using words like Trumpy, Trumpism & Trumpiest. What do those words really mean, truly stand for? Amoral? Corrupt? Authoritarian? Vulgar? Narcissistic? Power-hungry? Saying Trumpy is too benign. Let's call it like it is. Words matter.
Great one (for a change)! Thanks for explaining Largo; hadn't heard of it before. I also missed the fact that Sarah has a podcast, so now she has one more subscriber 🙂
When I read the title of the episode I thought, really?! Intrigued I pressed play and I am glad I did. Nicole Hockley you are remarkable. Thankyou for the work you & your organization provide. It is necessary work, heartbreakingly so and thankyou.
As always, Thank You Senior Chief Nance for giving the American People the Benefit of your Professional Analysis and Years of Experience I Protecting Our Nation! Thanks to Senator Franken for your Always Intelligent Questions
This is SO depressing. Our democracy literally depends on Democrats winning and expanding majorities in the House AND Senate this fall. We need Al running the DNC.
Very informative...for a change ; )
Unfortunately the poor sound quality made this one extremely difficult to follow. Hard to know if this was a great one, for a change...
interviewer's acoustics is terrible. total quality sufferes.
Great description of Sinema's horrendous behavior
Hello. I am listening and enjoying your interview in the present past. 12-18-2021.
your shows are set up wrong. season 1 than 3 then OTHER? ALL MESSED UP
so how us this all legal and how can it be changed. I hate that my adult life has been with a government with these self indulgent game players wrecking government for billionaire interests. think what could have been without this paid off bullshit. I want them to face Justice and be forced to stop.
I look forward to my hour long drive to work on Sunday mornings so I can listen to Al's podcast. It's always informative and funny. He's good enough, smart enough and doggone it, people like him.
a really superior podcast, for a change. Thanks, Mr. Franken, for enlightening us.
hey Al: your latest podcasts are not showing up on castbox or Google podcasts. is it me, you or the host?
😂😂😂 Thank you.
