Best of the Progressive Left
This podcast is the spinal cord to the central nervous system of disparate voices. Considering the duplicitous propaganda that spews from the corporate media, this service that Jay provides is a virtual godsend to isolated activists like myself, who hunger for the honest political narrative. From one trucker to another - Keep Up the Great Work !!!

The Finest Aggregate of Suppressed Educated Journalism
With the complete takeover of National Media outlets, sifting thru the multitude of new internet based, non-bias, factual journalism choices, can be impractically time consuming. "Best of the Left" stands out as the Concierge, for highlighting all of the best efforts made by other intellectual journalism and comedians. Thou I thoroughly enjoy listening to all of the full broadcast of the highlighted shows, "Best of the Left" is definitely the most compact, entertaining and education 1hr show available.

I listen to a lot of podcasts. If they make me laugh or think I stick around with them. I just started today listening to the best of the left podcast and all I can say is wow. They really have a nice thing going on here. Its awesome how they bring together so many different views, all clear and concise. Well put together audio and the mixture of acts, quick infos, and music has really made me happy that I stumbled upon them. You all should be proud of the work you do. Im not an expert of podcasts but you really do have something special. Cant wait to dive deeper into the archive. Just thought good work shouldnt go without notice.

About being the chosen people
Hi Jay, I love your show and commend you for the valuable service you provide. Personally, I consider myself an agnostic jew that enjoys his traditions. But, I have to make a comment on the Jewish tribe issue because I feel it is a common misconception of the religion. It is true that Jews consider themselves to be 'god's chosen people'. But, if you check what 'chosen' means in jewish interpretations, it is not a right but actually a responsibility to be a personal example - 'a light unto the nations'. This is why what Jews call 'being a Mench' (a good person), is valued more than wealth and influence. It is considered unnecessary for people to convert to Judaism because contrary to other monotheistic religions, it is not believed that non-jews are disadvantaged in any way or 'dammed'. Non-jews are born in the culture and society they are meant to be in, and have just as many opportunities to be a Mench. This is why according to some traditions, a Rabbi should turn away a willing convert three times before taking them on a path of conversion. And as for the assertion that some people hate jews because they feel excluded, I wonder if you have any social study or data to back that up. My personal interpretation of resentment of jews, is that it is not because they feel excluded from a club they want to be a part of, but that as long as the 'jewish club' exists, they perceive it to be a threat to the legitimacy and primacy of their religion. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, and Raffi.

I cant believe so many of the people who fought through the sixties with me, now ignore politics, pretend it isnt important. I cant believe my daughter thinks Im crazy and indulging myself (wasnt it my mother who said that?). Thanks for letting me join BOTL.

Compassionate and Informative
Cant get anough of this program. It can make me laugh one day and piss me off the next. It doesnt do much for Obama as hes too moderate (which one should have figured out years ago). It goes pretty far to the left while admitting that they dont know everything. There have been times, especially when it comes to scientific topics, where they are way off which is a cause for concern. Id hate for ignorance to be spread, even if it supports the left agenda. Careful, guys and gals; perform your due diligence. There are some pretty smart people who listen to your show. Overall, a good listen and sometimes the best part of my day.

The best of the best
This is the only podcast I donate to, the only podcast I never miss an episode of (even though I already watch some of the shows they pick up material from), and the only podcast Id miss if it went away. I dont agree with Jay on everything; I dont expect to. When I was 14 through 21 I worked for organizations that supported JFK and MLK and Hubert Humphrey and Eugene McCarthy. I learned about Malthus from Sloane Coffin and nuclear danger from Carl Sagan. Listening to this podcast gives me the hope that there are still people who have the ability to pull disparate pieces of information together and disseminate them in an understandable and entertaining way. If I was a bit younger and more vigorous, Id be a number one volunteer.

Its a great show. Its hard to find media that isnt "center-right", hearing shows like this remind me that there is a place between Berkley trust fund student and total middle of the road folks. Thanks a ton.

good show! Even for Europeans!! We may think that we get a lot of information about whats going on in the US, but most people only think they know, since our press is only slightly less censured than theirs... We get a lot of the negative press as well, of course, however, best of the left gives a very good overview of the left and "liberal" media. And most of all: for us Europeans, it is so nice to see that there are still MANY MANY sane Americans on the other side of the pond. We should think more about how to support people like Jay, and less about how hopeless the situation seems.

The only thing I have against this is Jays somewhat cloying (occasional) commentary. Other than that this is brilliant stuff made obviously with a lot of dedication that will turn you onto a whole range of stuff some of which isnt left learning or even from the US (there will be trouble in the UK when it gets out that the BBC Newsquiz is included on the Best of the Left - perhaps Jay could include a bit of Top Gear as well for balance?)

best of the left
best of the left does a very valuable service. not only does it regularly tap some of my favorite sources, but it has turned me on to new sources of intelligent information. i frequently search itunes to find new podcasts and passed on "best of the left" many times. why? i think it was the title -- and im a left lefty. im glad i discovered it and recommend it now as my number one "if you listen to nothing else, listen to this" podcast.

Easily my favorite
This podcast is absolutely wonderful; I have tried listening to dozens of podcasts but have stuck with this one. The stories and clips are relevant, well organized, split up with music that often provides me with comic relief after being rightfully outraged by something pointed out by BestOfTheLeft. This is an amazing program that will keep you well informed and educated with current events and save you time (which is necessary for many people). I cant say it enough; this podcast is incredible. Thank you thank you thank you to BestOfTheLeft!

This is a thoughtful mix of comedy, science, political high drama, exposure of the lies of Democrats and Republicans alike--I feel that I am getting not only left- leaning opinion, but the truth. We have a polarization problem in society today, especially in the media. It is tragic that people who listen to Fox or Limbaugh feel that they are getting the truth--I dont know how to solve that problem. I wish there were a way to get those who dont call themselves liberals to hear more non-spun factual information. One by one, we can try to spread the word,

Good Work
Jay is great and I cant wait for Wednesdays and Saturdays to hear his next show. Besides rounding up great clips he also makes some enlightening commentaries. Its been a tough few years for me and Ive made plenty of donations this year already. I was injured on the job and at the time could live with the pain but the older I get the more pronounced it is. To make a long story short, I havent worked in five years and I collect no assistance. I would like to just cut a check for a full year right now but as Ive said Ive donated plenty this year and I have other obligations to tend to. I will however donate four months at a time, it is a little easier to swallow. Jay, we care about you and do appreciate your hard work, were just broke. Love you man, keep at it. Dave form N.E. Ohio.

If you dont enjoy the show, its probably because you are a slow-witted dullard and should cease procreation immediately. Jays periodic queries for listener funding are unobtrusive and tasteful.

Anyone can aggregate links, but aggregating and editing intelligent. soulful content and music into a cohesive statement, that takes talent and devotion. Well thats just what Jay! Tomlinson puts into this wonderful podcast. Since I discovered it Ive been hooked, even though I listen to most of the shows he clips from, just the juxtaposition of related clips is thoroughly enriching and entertaining experience. He catches lots of good stuff that falls through the cracks for the 90% of us that dont have time to listen to every show and podcast out there.

I ran accross your podcast purley by accident. I purchased my itouch and was looking for (hate to admit it) free stuff to liten to. I am documentary and political minded person and rarley listen to music any more, (Old!) I was searching for like minded programs in the section of itunes, and bingo! Budda Boom! there you were. "Best of the Left!" I said "thats for me" I am a lefty. I truly enjoy what you have to say about your audience and the appreciation you show them through acknowledgment on every show. Kinda like a commmercial, but not really. You appear to be a kind, and sincere person, but somtimes you talk too much, I think its because of your enthusiasm though, not ego. The thought you put into your programs and the content is perfect! Good job, hopefully I will be able to become a donor, instead of just an advocate. It is wonderful to know that someone is doing what the truly love, and bringing substance to our ears, it is a rare thing these days, Jay.

Association between Church and Gay Pride
I appreciate your programming and, on your most recent edition, your heartfelt comment on people's sensitivity to the association between the church and gay pride in the context of the pedophilia within the papacy. I fully support your reader/listener's feedback. That said, as I have come to know it in Italy, the rainbow flag signifies peace and is typically emblazoned with "PACE", Italian for Peace. I am an Italian-American and I used to live in Rome for several years. I saw this very same flag used on several very prominent public demonstrations: War opposition, government policy issues, union upheaval, marathons, sporting events, etc. where 10's of thousands of participants could see or carry the flag that is nearly the size of a street block. This doesn't change your listener's very valid points but it should also be clarified that there are cultural differences between Italy and the USA with regard to how rainbow flags are used. Keep up the great work! Thanks, -Matt

Best podcast
Best of the Left is a concise podcast that compiles truly the best liberal commentators. Its a time-saver to keep me informed yet not have to watch/listen to everything out there that Id like to hear but dont have time for. Jay does the perfect job assembling it. Plus, the musical interludes he adds between segments are sophisticated and, well, just terrifically fun. Not only that, but each podcast is split into segments so I can fast-forward past the few Ive already heard elsewhere. The other cool thing is Jay himself, who lets us know at the end of the podcast what hes up to. People who dont care can shut it off then, but Im excited that hes figured out a way to support himself doing this podcast, so I enjoy brief updates on where hes at in his new adventure.

A small slice of sanity
Rather than simply echo the loudest voices in the media, Best of the Left reminds us that any legitimate claim has to be supported by actual facts. Given the wealth of double talk coming from the rightwing voices, there is no shortage of opportunities to point out their logical inconsistencies and outright lies, and this podcast does a great job of pointing them out. And to top it off, its often funny. Significance, intelligence, and fun: thats what this postcast brings to counter the absurdities of rightwing nutcases.

Best of Best - Best of the Left!!
I dont even leave the house without the latest podcast. Whether Im working at the shop, working out, juicing up some veggies, or just surfing the net, Im listening to Best of the Left. My favorite progressive faggot visionary philosopher activist, Michel Foucault, taught us that knowledge is power, and thats what this podcast really is. It is the power which turns a bleeding heart liberal into a bleeding fist progressive, which is exactly what is needed when progressivism is pushed into the corner as it is now. Some words of wisdom from The Red Hot Chili Peppers: "Im a little pea I love the sky and the trees. Im a teeny-tiny little ant checking out this and that. And I am nothing... ahhhh... so you have nothing to hide. And Im a pacifist... so I can fuck your shit up. Ohh yeahhhhhhhh, Im small. Ohh yeaAAAHHHhhHHHh, Im smaaaaall. Fuck you asshole - you homophobic redneck dick. Big and tough and macho you can kick my ass - so fucking what?! So fucking what. So fucking what. So fucking what." Yeah, man, were small. And they may have the power, but weve got the truth - weve got The Best of the Left!!

My staple resource for political commentary.
As an undergraduate studying political science, I find myself with little time to follow the myriad of political "commentary" in the media. BOTL provides me with the highlights of main-stream progressive media coupled with excellent commentary from the host, Jay, I whole-heartedly endorse the message and methods of this show, it is a true diamond in the rough.

What does it take to wake up some people?
Thank you again BOTL, you continue to enlighten me daily. It seems as if a majority of Americans choose to remain mushrooms. I am afraid at this rate, our thoughts soon wont be heard in the near future. I am planning on becoming a member soon but have had health problems and almost no money coming in. I will make up for it, I promise. Looking at the amount youve collected in January I am disgusted by the lack of support you receive. I am however constantly telling people about your show. Thank You So Much! David C.

Best Of The Left is the perfect place to get all of the weeks most intelligently argued and humorous clips fighting on the side of reality. Even though I sometimes have seen--or listened to--all of the shows that the segments have been taken from by the time the podcast is released, its still worth it to get the complete experience that is BOTL. With the music tracks in between and the theme bringing all the clips closer together, I find myself getting something extra every week.

Best of The Left Is Great
I have listened to The Best of The Left for about 3 months now and I enjoy hearing different voices the left has in about an hour on different topics. I really enjoy how one show is all on one subject. I use much of the information I get from The Best of The Left on many of my republican friends and relatives. They just start to shake and get mad and then I know I proved to them the lefts point of view. That is what is really going on in this health care debate. Oh it really is not a debate it is just CONS being mad and making up lies. They are just poor losers and they are mad because their guy did not get in. We on the left had to put up with 8 long years of the worst pres. this country has ever had and now it is our turn and they are mad and mad as hell. Anyway I love listening to the best of the left twice every week.

the Best of the Left Podcasts are the one source podcast information that I look forward to listening to each week. Always informative, always progressive and factual. I trust them to save me hours of time to present to me information I want and more importantly need to hear, in a clear succinct and often entertaining format. It is very important to encourage and support the work that goes into producing a program like this so that we have a alternative to all the Right Wing trash that is invented as news and is helping destroy our country by the small minded businessmen who now own and control access to factual information and positive progressive logic. We need this Program to survive.

One of the best politically minded podcasts Ive heard. I appreciate the effort Jay and the rest of the team puts forth; each program is rich in both content and production. Humor is never lacking. The programs are well-balanced. There never seems to be a "Left is right, and the Right is wrong" mentality. They are equally critical of each Party. I encourage anyone interested in politics to listen to one episode.

This podcast is a must-listen to anyone trying to get a comprehensive sweep of the multitude of left wing talk-shows out there. The shows are theme based and packages the best clips about that subject. It you are on the left, you get to hear all the great comments. If you are a centrist, youd prob love to hear all the different sides of stories, many times disagreeing. If you are on the right you might want to stay away from it. Its killer!

I only happened upon the podcast as I was learning to download podcasts from my son. I felt like I had been buried for 30 years in a cave with no sun and that I suddenly learned there was a door to the outside right there all the time. AMAZING! I am so SO relieved, even delirious to have found it. I am a 55 y/o "employed" woman with two disabled sons and have just spent the last 22 years desperate. Its not health insurance, its not off-the radar income, but its almost better because I feel less disposable and empowered than ever. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU Jay for doing this show.

An Important Role
Best of the Left helps busy people keep in touch with liberal talk radio and podcast shows. Conservative media such as Clear Channel have made it difficult to listen to progressive radio shows. Best of the Left concentrates some interesting clips that I often share with friends and family.

No Marc Maron?
I dug the comedy issue of Best of the Left BUT how can you do a best of left comedy podcast and not include any material from Air America Radio's funniest host ever - Marc Maron. He's way left, and way funny. There so much material from the Marc Maron Show and Morning Sedition, Maron cd's or any of his recent guest host work. He is way more cutting edge, deep, hip and funny than anyone else on the scene. You include the unfunny Young Turks, yet slight Morning Sediton. Please give Marc some credit and exposure next time. Thanks for reading.

The Power of Community
This podcast uses guest editors to put these shows together, which adds to the variety, but the format is wonderfully solid: powerful snippets from progressive voices, often ganged up topically, amplifying the message brilliantly, and offsetting with a wide range of musical interludes.

Inspiring, time saving, coherent, and regular
HippieSympathizer really does a fantastic job at aggregating clips of various "leftist" radio shows into extremely coherent podcasts. Each show has a different feel to it, granted by music clips in between radio segments. Each podcast is sure to inspire and enlighten its listener or at least will clearly demonstrate the threat that Bush and Cheney and his cronies are to democracy and world stability. I have not found anything like Best of the Left with such quality. I try out a couple new podcasts a week and I usually dump them because they e a waste of my time. This one saves me time and it is a must have for your daily commute.

I recently signed up to receive your podcast. I’m glad I did. I’m an active duty naval officer living in the Norfolk/Virginia Beach area of Virginia. In case you don’t know, this is probably the reddest part of this red state. As a result the only talk radio that plays around here, excluding NPR, consist of Limbaugh, Hannity, and Michael Savage types. Thank you so much for bringing tidbits of progressive talk radio to my Ipod. I hope you know that there are more than a few career military officers that appreciate listening to progressive voices.
