KCRW is taking Left, Right & Center on the road – just in time for the 2018 midterm elections that will decide which party controls Congress. Join Josh Barro and a host of luminaries from across the political spectrum for a rollicking examination of the issues confounding our country. Imagine the most intensive, in-depth political analysis you’ve ever experienced – only fun!  LRC Live – because you have decisions to make.

Ana Marie Cox hosts the WITH FRIENDS LIKE THESE podcast from Crooked Media. Her writing has appeared in THE NEW REPUBLIC, SPORTS ILLUSTRATED, THE WASHINGTON POST, and ESQUIRE, and her “Space the Nation” column, about the intersection of science fiction and politics, appears each week on Syfy.com.

She describes herself as a “right-leaning libertarian.” Megan has also written for Bloomberg View, Newsweek, The Atlantic and she is the author of the book The Up Side of Down: Why Failing Well Is the Key to Success.

Left, Right & Center is a weekly political showdown that invites the most intelligent thinkers to talk through the most important issues stymying our government. It’s a clash of ideas, not a clash of personalities: You’ll be surprised at how often different sides agree! The show delves in policy and pop culture, always with an eye to elevating the conversation. In addition to over 1 million listeners online, LRC airs at 3pm and 7pm Fridays on KCRW 89.9FM in Los Angeles, at 7pm Fridays on KALW 91.7FM in San Francisco, and 6AM and 6PM Saturdays on WNYC AM820 in New York. The show is available at KCRW.com, KCRW’s smartphone app, or wherever you listen to podcasts. LRC is your civilized yet provocative antidote to the opinion bubbles dominating today’s political debate.
