Nation Magazine honors Mitch Jeserich

The Nation Magazine has named Letters & Politics, MOST VALUABLE RADIO SHOW on their Progressive Honor Roll for 2016. Congratulations to Mitch for the well deserved recognition!

Here’s what the Nation had to say about the show:

Veteran broadcaster Mitch Jeserich started a radio program called Letters From Washington to chronicle the first 100 days of the Obama administration. That program evolved into Letters & Politics, which airs daily on Berkeley’s pioneering Pacifica station KPFA. Erudite and adventurous, Jeserich can jump from a discussion about how civilization has changed over a thousand years with historian Ian Mortimer, to an examination of Islamophobia with international human-rights campaigner Arsalan Iftikhar, to a review of Trump’s conflicted cabinet picks with Pratap Chatterjee, the executive director of CorpWatch. This is talk radio that makes you smarter.

    I love Mitch’s show, not quite as much as when he did all the question-asking. I appreciate the democratic impulse, but I’m not sure the listener comments are up to snuff.

  • Robert Nelson

    Recognition by Nation magazine is well deserved! I listen to Letters and Politics as often as I can and always learn something…

  • DanBuskirk

    I appreciate the spirit of inviting the listener into the conversation but rarely do if feel they draw more out of a guest than Mitch would. Congrats on the notice, well-deserved.

  • Chris W

    Mitch, your show is great, and this honor much deserved. I recommend your show to all of my students at Laney College. (I also recommend Your Call with Rose Aguilar at KALW, so I make sure they know how to use the online archives!) Thank you for helping us all learn about history and be better informed participants in public discourse.
