NEW YORK and LOS ANGELES – September 29, 2022 – Today SiriusXM announced that starting this weekend, Crooked Media podcasts will take over SiriusXM Progress channel’s lineup every weekend until November’s midterm elections. The special Crooked Radio programming will feature Crooked’s top-ranked podcasts, including Pod Save America, Lovett or Leave It, Pod Save the World, and Strict Scrutiny.

In addition, SiriusXM’s L.A. Garage studios hosted a special taping of Pod Save America before an audience of their superfans on September 28. Crooked Media founders Jon Favreau, Jon Lovett and Tommy Vietor, alongside their fellow Pod Save America host Dan Pfeiffer, were joined by guests including Grammy-award winning singer-songwriter John Legend, Senator Elizabeth Warren, Vibe Check co-host Sam Sanders, and Dare We Say podcast hosts Alycia Pascual-Peña and Yasmine Hamady. The episode will air on SiriusXM Progress channel 127 tomorrow night at 7pm ET.

A taping of Hysteria, Crooked’s weekly talk show co-hosted by writer Erin Ryan and former Obama administration official Alyssa Mastromonaco, is also scheduled for SiriusXM’s L.A. Garage on October 18. That episode will air on Progress at a later date and will also be available as a podcast on the SXM App, Stitcher, and wherever listeners access their podcasts.

The special programming on SiriusXM Progress is part of a broader deal between Crooked Media and SiriusXM. Earlier this year the two companies announced a multi-year agreement under which Crooked Media joined the SiriusXM network, with SXM Media, the advertising sales arm of Sirius XM Holdings Inc., gaining exclusive global ad sales rights to Crooked Media’s extensive lineup of podcasts.

SiriusXM Progress is available to subscribers nationwide in their car and on the SXM App. The SXM App is available to subscribers on mobile devices and a wide variety of connected platforms in the home including smart speakers, smart TVs and streaming media players. Streaming access is included with all of SiriusXM’s audio trials and most popular plans.
