As summer time approaches, people expect historic heat, fulfilling vacations, and political candidates preparing for the fall campaign season.

Podcast networks are ramping up their election coverage with new limited-series podcasts and extensions of their existing political podcasts.

Immigrantly Media has added a new, and frankly overdue, spin on the upcoming presidential election with their new limited-run podcast series, Nationly, that debuted in early June.

Nationly, co-hosted by J.D. Ramirez and Sara Sadhwani, discusses the “Why?” behind political issues that really matter to minority communities — immigrants and communities of color — specifically in the battleground states at the heart of this year’s election season. Focusing on minority communities — specifically, immigrants and communities of color — Nationly uncovers the issues that truly matter to these voters, ranging from global events like the situation in Gaza to local races such as the showdown between Kari Lake v. Ruben Gallego.

The podcast asks: Who’s spearheading the uncommitted movement in Michigan? What key issues are driving Latino support in Arizona? Why is Gen Z stepping up to run for office in Georgia? Delving into the “why” behind political issues, each episode explores key defining moments in the lives of these voters, providing a comprehensive view of America’s political spectrum and the diverse voices shaping it.
