The Audit Podcast

Comedian Dave Anthony and screenwriter Josh Olson audit a variety of online classes, docuseries, and other media products created by noxious political figures and boil them down to the good stuff. By which they mean… the bad stuff.

Dave, Josh, and a rotating coterie of guest hosts consume depraved educational content, then regurgitate a short-form review detailing the sociopathy baked into the messages. It’s like listening to a book report  — except the authors are deranged lunatics poisoning American culture.

Narrated by David Sirota, MELTDOWN explores how the financial crisis and the Obama administration’s response helped create the conditions for the rise of Donald Trump, and how Democrats risk repeating the same history today.

Produced by Academy Award-winning documentarian Alex Gibney, MELTDOWN features exclusive interviews with Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor, Thomas Frank, Matt Taibbi, and Sirota's never-before-aired interview with Barack Obama.

You can find the entire series here.
