Establishment Exiles is a progressive political podcast founded by Kevin Ehsani, Alicé Anil, and Mike Figueredo. They also host the podcast along with contributors Brittany B., Ron Placone, and Ashley Hudson. Establishment Exiles is currently an audio-only podcast that's available on iTunes once a week, featuring three of our six exiles, and usually an additional progressive guest. The subject matter will vary, but it's politically-oriented, and features commentary from millennials that feel disenchanted with the American political establishment and elites that pull the strings.
