After what likely has felt like a decade of slow building, the race for the next presidential election is finally here. With the general election taking place in less than a week, now is the time to stock up your knowledge arsenal with podcasts to help you follow the 2020 election. Collecting a good batch of audio resources to clarify the political narratives taking place will actually save you time in the long run, and it might just make the process bearable, or at the very least, easier to understand.
The 2020 presidential election may have only had one Republican front-runner, but it's been a barnburner of a competition. The campaign trail has seen over a dozen serious Democratic contenders vie for the nomination, a presidential impeachment trial take place, and more. Though we're mere days away from election day, there's still plenty of time for more confusion to arise.

Whether you like your politics with a dose of humor or with a roundtable of hard-hitting, stone-faced journalists, there's a podcast out there for you — and it likely comes out frequently enough to keep you satiated.
