The Lincoln Project’s co-founder, Ron Steslow, is launching a new podcast company, according to Axios.
The Lincoln Project, Steslow’s political action committee that he left late last year, is currently dealing with multiple accusations of sexual harassment alleged against John Weaver, another co-founder.
The accusations were reported by Ryan Girdusky with The American Conservative in January. (RELATED: Lincoln Project Denounces Co-Founder As Predator, Liar, And Abuser)
“This is politics without the blinders,” Steslow said in a trailer for his new podcast company. “The storming on the Capitol provided a gut-wrenching reminder that the fight for the soul of our democracy was not over.”
It brings me so much joy to cross this milestone and continue the journey with our delightfully thoughtful, engaged listener community—right on the same podcast feed.
Where do we go from here?

The Lincoln Project, meanwhile, “will be unveiling new episodes imminently,” a spokesperson told Axios.
“(W)e view the podcast and our other media verticals such as LPTV as foundational pieces of The Lincoln Project. We’ll also be announcing an expansion of LPTV programming in the coming weeks,” the spokesperson added. Steslow’s new company has plans to launch more podcasts going forward.
“The number one question we get from our community of listeners is, ‘Where do we go from here?’ Exploring answers to that question is precisely the work we are going to do together on Politicology,” Steslow told Axios regarding his new venture.
