Pod Save America host and former Obama aide Jon Favreau said the Democratic Party had failed to properly reflect on the reasons for its loss in the 2016 presidential election in a post on Crooked Media, announcing a plan for his popular podcast network to tackle the topic over the summer and asking for listeners' thoughts:
