Lord of Geekdom Joss Whedon Talks Politics On The Young Turks

Two forces on opposite ends of the media spectrum unite!

Joss Whedon, director of a small art-house film known as The Avengers sits down with Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks, the largest, most progressive online news source for an interview.

One of the Lords of Geekdom, Joss Whedon hasn’t shied away from politics in this election cycle. Whedon’s Save the Day efforts created several videos over the months starring Marvel’s Avengers among many other of Joss’ Hollywood friends. From the mind of Joss Whedon, a new video emerges with another star-studded cast. What If Congress Was Your Co-Worker includes Whedon regulars like Alan Tudyk and J. August Richards and stars Chris Pine.

Over in the news media world, The Young Turks (TYT for the cool kids) is the largest online news network. TYT is unabashedly progressive but also funded by subscribers and not sponsors. So, TYT doesn’t shy away from the truth no matter how they feel about it. You know, they report news and facts with a side of opinion and not the other way around. The other way around is known is entertainment.

Joss Whedon and TYT came together for an interview about Save the Day, the new video, politics, and more.
