I appreciate the next level, detailed reporting to help me understand all the nuances of the headlines. I especially like the calm demeanor of the host and the lack of histrionics that other podcasts have.
Essential reading, if you want to understand the news
I have found that I must turn in to Intercepted and Deconstructed to really understand what is going on behind the headlines and mainstream news articles. (And of course you get nothing on the legs of MSNBC.) Today, for example, I wanted to learn more about the Niger situation, and found that episode entirely enlightening, as is typical for these podcasts. 100% credible and thorough. Super interesting.
Scahil’s return to form
The latest episode on the Israeli protests is a must listen. Mairav Zonszein is a true gem.
Glad I found this podcast
Once I found this great podcast, not only did I subscribe to it, I’ve begun going through previous offerings.
The Intercept is a psyop
The Intercept has been co-opted by the CIA. Controlled opposition. Where are Snowden’s files? Where is Greenwald? Where is Manning? Where is Reality Winner? Where is ASSANGE? Where does The Intercept’s funding come from? Pierre Omidiyar, a billionaire.
the real raskol
Can you provide more in-depth podcasts? This show is a fresh start, a new beginning for progressive thought in this country and abroad.
Just listened to the podcast on Pakistan. Outstanding! Will listen more in the future.
Jeremy Scahill is a Russian fascism shill. Pure scum. May the victims of the Ukrainian war never forgive him.
Scahill is BACK!
I am back to upgrade The Intercept back to 5 stars. The return of Jeremy Scahill has reinvigorated the pod and his laser focus and erudite conversation with guests are the best part of my podcast listening week again. I genuinely can’t think of any other journalist who is able to factually convey such vital history of corruption, abuse of power, and other criminality and show so definitively how it links firmly back into the rotting firmaments of today’s world of failed governments not serving the People. Scahill is a brilliant mind and spellbinding voice of truth and integrity in journalism. The education the listener receives is invaluable and leaves one better equipped to see through the pantomime political figures indulge in daily. Mr. Scahill, please never leave us again. You are the definitive voice of professional, responsible, and truthful journalism for all generations.
Back, listening to INTERCEPTED again! 🙌🏼
..And that’s all because of discovering (by accident) that Jeremy Scahill is BACK! Doing what he does BEST: Sophisticated, yet unassuming factual Political analysis based on evidential data and most importantly TRUTH! His BRILLIANT mind, exceptional ability to write the most relevant and concise analysis, discuss/argue his points while respecting others, and finally the best part: his unparalleled delivery (in that Awesome Voice) are ALL amongst the reasons why his return to his brainchild #intercepted is most welcome by his fiercest fans, myself included! To no more (long) hiatuses & MANY years of JEREMY’s analysis & success 🏼✌🏼👍🏼🥂
Excellent podcast from an excellent investigative journalism team. More people should subscribe to their stories.
Learning so much
I always learn something from this Podcast; something that I wouldn't even know how to go about researching or coming acoss on my own. Keep up the good work!
A great look into the Supreme Court, state legislature, and how scary rights and legitimacy are being undermined.
Jordan Smith’s episodes covering the Supreme Court have been fantastic! Great interviews and a fun listen on topics that are so incredibly important to get out to all American citizens. Look forward to more episodes.
Because I’m a white person who went to a PWI, it doesn’t make sense to me that you would choose to not cover affirmative action cases but I guess I’m not the expert :)
Just unlistenable these days
This show was excellent in its inception. I’m not sure where Scahill’s been for the past couple of years but he is sorely missed. Scahill has his obvious biases but he’s charismatic and most importantly, he’s generally correct. The folks who’ve recently come on board in his stead are just intolerably overzealous SJW types and the material no longer inspires me to listen. If I ever get word that Scahill has returned I’ll do so myself, but until then I’m an unsubscriber.
“The Intercept” perfect name for an organization whose initial goal was to “intercept” the Snowden Files from making it to the public. You succeeded. 👏
I ❤️ listening
Where is Jeremy?
This podcast turned to mud when they let Glenn Grenwald anywhere near this pod. Bring back Jeremy and jettison Glenn.
Recent guests are obviously knowledgeable about whatever subject they are talking about but the editing, hosting and flow have been terrible lately. The 6/25 episode on Roe/Wade/Dobbs was unlistenable. What happened to this pod?
Another sad casualty of Trump Brain
The drift of the politics and journalism presented on this show, I guess mirroring that of its host publication’s top-level editors and the podcast’s own staff, has been quite extreme over the last four or five years and I can only surmise that it’s yet another casualty of Trump Derangement Syndrome. What began as critical independent journalism, by reporters who if not always the smartest always at least had a grounding in shoe-leather reporting and a real perspective on the imperial history of the US, has ended up with a bunch of obvious climbers and careerists regurgitating the Democratic Party’s political messaging about “the January 6th coup attempt” and other such hysterical, ahistoric nonsense. The people who did real reporting and had real politics seem to have departed en masse and what we’re left with is just another liberal hack organ like many others. Unsubscribe!
Always interesting analysis that goes way beyond the superficial.
This is activism not journalism
Shame on you sycophantic cocktail party beltway spook weirdos. Glenn Greenwald was all you ever had
I don't need anything
Loved episode with Dr. Murray on the Ali to leaked decision!!
There are only so many topics to discuss and whether I am reading print or listening to podcasts, the goal is to find another layer, a deeper insight or a perspective I can’t find elsewhere. The Intercept is my go-to. This is a no nonsense deep dive into whichever topic they are looking at today. The whole team is superb.
Honest, unbiased and knowledgeable
I find this podcast covers national and international issues without the self-censorship that corporate media practices. Amazingly when my local US house campaign descended into unfounded homophobic allegations, it was the Intercept, not local media, that exposed the Massachusetts ol boy Democrats who orchestrated it.
Hard hitting journalism
Unfortunately the intercept is a rarity nowadays. A media outlet that is willing to look at the hypocrisy of its own government. They aren’t cheerleaders or apologists for the military industrial complex. And they have no problem exposing the horrors committed by them.
Where is Jeremy?
I’ve been listening to this podcast for years. I’ve also been waiting for Jeremy Scahill’s return for (what feels like) years. How long has he been gone again? Last update I remember was them saying they were deciding the future of the show and would be back with an update. Yet, no update ever arrived. The new pieces are interesting, but lack the depth and context the older iteration of the show had. If this is what the show will be from now on, I wish they would say so explicitly. For now, I’ll tune in occasionally but I’ll be listening to Deconstructed regularly instead.
Where is Jeremy Scahill?
Big fan of podcast but where did Scahill go and when is he coming back? The newer episodes are short and very niche and undeveloped.
ANTIFAs media arm
Once a decent left leaning podcast turned into antifa propaganda. After listening to the episode regarding the Rittenhouse verdict, I found myself surprised (yes surprised) at how bent out of shape they saw the case. No fn nuance to save their own lives. When bringing up Jacob Blake they had the nerve to withhold the fact he was violating a restraining order for sexual assault! This podcast can f itself forever lol. I used to love this podcast but I can’t express how much i despise it now.
Biased and political
I used to love this podcast. Used to seem pretty thorough and informative when reporting on foreign policy. More and more I find them very misleading and trying to push obviously slanted and political narratives. Doesn’t seem like facts are the main course here. It’s no wonder Greenwald left his own organization after being censored
nov 24 pod
also i am skeptical of the daily caller saying he screwed up the video that wasn’t clear. it’s the daily caller!
When will we stop stretching so thin to protect what CNN says
The latest episode is just garbage regarding the rittenhouse verdict… completely opinion driven and void of facts from the trail. It feels like we are stretching to far to protect a losing narrative. I’m lost, this is trash and not fact based. You are no better than tucker Carlson if you are going to make the case convenient by leaving out or embellishing details of a case that is open and clear and the facts are out there.
Good show but I miss Scahill
Sad, but now just a corporate mouth piece.
Sad, but now just a corporate mouth piece. There are way better info out there
Let’s get over the coup attempt before we criticize the new administration. Also let’s say the entitled push the elite for certain policies
Can y’all at least delete “with Jeremy Scahill”?
Where’s Jeremy Scahill? Jack Disadoro is a producer, not a voice. Bring back the host please, or at least address where he went?
Public Citizen number 5
Used to be my favorite podcast
Intercepted used to be the first podcast I would listen to whenever a new episode came out. However, it has devolved into Jack D’Isidoro’s personal play space and I cannot understand the speakers anymore. I have a hearing issue and the music he insists on playing over the speaker gets blended in so I cannot make out the words. I brought this basic access issue to his attention and he dismissed it by saying I should just read the transcripts. That is like telling someone in a wheelchair that instead of providing them a ramp, they should just go home and listen to a record. I love the interstitial music but let the speakers speak!
This needs to be on YouTube! Brilliant and informative wish I could share on social media to those who don’t have access to podcast!
When we hired an in home caregiver, she was a full time employee and treated so with a contract, days off, healthcare benefits etc. However, both our gardeners and house cleaners who come once or twice a week, these are part-time employees. However, all of California is an ‘at will’ employment and that provides little job security for us all.
I learn a lot
Terrific journalism in the finest muck-raking tradition. For the moron right, moaning about fair and balanced in these reviews, TRUTH does not involve finding nice things to say about the crooks and charlatans who prop up your twisted world view. Keep rocking it Intercepted.
Propagandists for the planted admin.
Lost its way
Smelling private citizens dirty laundry is a long way from keeping a watchful eye on Big Brother. You’ve lost your way and I won’t go any further with you on this journey. I’m out!
Supporter but where is Syria coverage?
Jeremy, kids and moms and dads need some adversarial journalism. How can Intercepted stand-by while Harken, Mackey, Reed throw them into the waste bin? I realize you can’t change that but stiffen your neck or get out.
Raise a glass today to Sean.
Remember Sean Kealiher
Great podcast, love it in all its forms. I look forward to the shows and listen immediately after dropping.
Really disappointed in the lack of quality and length in recent episodes. Plus the host has seemingly disappeared and there has been no communication to listers regarding the change. Time to unsubscribe.
What a joke.
Ok from time to time
But way too much Antifa sympathizing. And with the whole Glenn Greenwood thing the Intercept has definitely jumped the shark. It shows in the reporting and on this podcast.
