John and Molly Knefel are siblings, writers, and comedians. Together, they host Radio Dispatch, a progressive political podcast that airs Monday through Thursday. Combined, they’ve written for the Nation, the New Inquiry, Salon, Truthout, Alternet, Feministing, the Hairpin, and xoJane, and appeared on Countdown with Keith Olbermann, the BBC, NPR, and 30 Rock. They began their comedy show, John and Molly Get Along, over 3 years ago, and produced a well-received web series of the same name.
With Radio Dispatch Live, John and Molly will bring their comedy and politics to the stage. Each show will be a conversation, featuring guest thinkers, writers, and performers. Imagine a Sunday talk show, but with beer and radical analysis.
