The Professional Left Podcast, called “one of the best political conversations in America.”  (  has posted its 100th consecutive weekly episode this weekend.

Having being told at several blogger meet-ups that "they should be on the radio together," veteran liberal bloggers Driftglass and Blue Gal began their adventures in podcasting in January of 2010.  Their podcast appears on i-Tunes, and is published weekly at the blog Crooks and Liars every Saturday night.   Recently they were added to the Netroots Radio line-up on Sunday nights as well.

There is also a Professional Left App at the i-Tunes store, which gives i-Phone listeners access to the podcasters’ individual blogs, as well as the podcast and bonus episodes only available to app purchasers.

Blue Gal blogs at and recently celebrated her seventh year in blogging.  Driftglass blogs at, and will celebrate his seventh year next spring.  

Driftglass and Blue Gal were married in August of 2011.   Their one-hundredth episode includes discussion of Newt Gingrich, Rachel Maddow, and military spending.   Episodes appear each Friday.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
