To Ears With Love: Let’s Get Civical


To Ears With Love is a weekly column about our favorite podcasts. Ever listen to a podcast, find it entrancing, only to binge listen to the whole thing and be left with nothing but silence or a Spotify playlist? FangirlNation is here to help with some suggestions.

Hosted by a former campaign staffer/political strategist and a stand-up comedian, Let’s Get Civical is designed to give listeners a humorous look at modern and historical politics in the United States of America. Let’s face it, right now they’ve got a ton to talk about. The hosts are Arden Walentowski (political strategist) and Lizzie Stewart (comedian). They regularly have guest, such as Mara Wilson of child actor fame and Mike Houston from Orange is the New Black.

Let’s Get Civical attempts to bring the history from all sides of politics, but has a definite pro-woman, pro-inclusion slant. As those are my preferred politics, I had no issues. There is a great deal of support on this podcast for people of color and women.

So far, Let’s Get Civical has covered the history of political parties, the impeachment process, the first amendment, and voter turnouts. The content is engaging and the guests are fun to listen to without anyone being overly preachy.

If you want to know more about how government America (does or doesn’t) work, Let’s Get Civical is a great place to start. You can listen to Let’s Get Civical on all major podcast platforms.
