This partnership takes me back to my roots in progressive politics and I couldn’t be more thrilled to have the opportunity to work Nina Turner

For the audio platform, TYT Network has partnered with Panoply Media to maximize distribution and reach of the network’s slate of shows. While The Young Turks, TYT’s signature news and politcs show, has been offered as an audio podcast in the past, today’s launch represents TYT’s first significant investment in original audio content.
The collaboration includes We the People with Nina Turner, which explores strength, justice equality, progress and more through the eyes of the people most affected by today’s policies and politics. Nina Turner is President of the grass-roots progressive organization founded by Bernie Sanders, Our Revolution and former Ohio state senator.
“Building an audio business is a natural extension of our award‐winning video business, and an excitng next step for us in our mission to make TYT’s distnct voice and diverse programming available everywhere people consume talk, news and entertainment content,” said TYT Network Founder and CEO Cenk Uygur.
In addition, the Young Turks has added a Larj Media original production, Mouthy Messy Mandatory to their lineup. Mouthy Messy Mandatory is hosted by Katie Anthony and Ronit Feinglass Plank. It’s a weekly podcast covering news and politics through a feminist lens with irreverent voices that use edgy humor and brutal honesty to dig deep into today’s most controversial hot topics.
“We are fortunate to have the heft of a brand like TYT to take our work into the market with a distribution partner like Panoply who will bring a hungry audience to these rich, smart women-hosted shows.”
