With special guests Tressie McMillan Cottom and NC State Representative candidate Dante Pittman!

Lovett or Leave It is crisscrossing the nation this election year with one simple mission: Make Joe Biden younger. Backup mission: Make you laugh until you forget how old Joe Biden is. This live comedy and variety show breaks down the week’s biggest news in politics and pop culture with games, sketches, jokes that literally never miss, and a healthy dollop of uncategorizable gay chaos. Chaos that’s only a fraction of the things in Jon, Jon & Tommy’s book, Democracy or Else: How to Save America in 10 Easy Steps.

Jon Lovett is a podcast host, former presidential speechwriter, and straight shooter widely respected on both sides. In 2017, he co-founded Crooked Media, where he co-hosts “Pod Save America” and hosts “Lovett or Leave It,” two beloved podcasts that are very good. His first book, Democracy or Else, which he co-authored alongside his Crooked Media co-founders, will be released on June 25, 2024. Before Crooked, he served as a speechwriter in the Obama White House and for Hillary Clinton, co-created a comedy on NBC called “1600 Penn" (canceled after one perfect season), wrote for "The Newsroom" with Aaron Sorkin, and posted many perfect tweets before deleting the app forever. 

Tressie McMillan Cottom is a professor at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, a 2020 MacArthur Foundation Fellow, and New York Times contributing opinion writer.

Dante Pittman is a North Carolina Army National Guard member and Candidate for NC House of Representatives District 24.
