The purpose of the Progressive Information Project is to more widely share resources and information created to advance progressive causes. A lot of good work is being done, but the average progressive often doesn't learn about it or know what is available. This series is designed to help alleviate that problem.

This week's post is very simple—it's an attempt to round up all of the online progressive radio shows, podcasts, and video shows that are regularly produced. I'm sure the list below is incomplete, so let me know what is missing and I'll update the list regularly to make sure everyone can find the progressive media voices available to us online ...
