On today’s show, Melo sits down for a glass with one of the co-founders of Crooked Media and former speechwriter for Barack Obama, Jon Favreau. They discuss how Favreau got into politics and how he ended up working with then-Senator Obama. Favreau also shares some memories from his time in the White House and what it was like to write a speech for the President. The conversation then shifts to the co-founding of Crooked Media, what it’s like hosting Pod Save America and the work the Crooked team is doing with their Vote Save America campaign. Finally, Favreau discusses his new podcast, “Offline with Jon Favreau”, and more.
