Pod Save the World is a weekly foreign policy podcast produced and distributed by Crooked Media, and hosted by former White House National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor.[1][2]

Vietor is joined each week by a guest to discuss foreign policy and international relations.[3] Notable guests include former National Security Advisor Susan Rice, former White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough, and US Senator and Vice Presidential Candidate Tim Kaine.[4]

New episodes initially debuted on Wednesday; towards the end of 2017, this changed to Friday.

While other Crooked Media podcasts tend to focus heavily on domestic issues within the United States, Pod Save the World discusses global issues and international relations, with a focus on civic involvement.[5]

Vietor describes the podcast as a "no bullshit" approach to global news that tries to make complicated issues seem relatable and simple to understand.[6]

It debuted at number one on the iTunes podcast chart on January 10th 2017.[7] Salon named Pod Save the World as one of its '15 indispensible policy podcasts'.[8] Vogue called it one of spring 2017's best shows.[9]
