About Us

Our future oriented


Digital Liberation Front  (DLF) is a media company run by activists with backgrounds in professional media production, investigative journalism, and a penchant for standing up for what’s right. DLF’s strong southern roots now reach across the entire United States to create a powerful voice for progressive causes and policy while connecting people across the globe. We cover the stories corporate owned media won’t and we do so with integrity and accuracy. 

DLF combats disinformation and works toward a common cause of fighting oppression through integrity of reporting and, occasionally, direct action. DLF lives our values by supporting progressive causes with professional streaming and production services, consulting services as well as video, audio, and graphic design services. 

Our team comes from all across the political spectrum  and different walks of life. We are united through Progressive Policy because these policies are fiscally responsible, socially sound.

We are the first true employee-owned media company in the nation.

What is a “Progressive”?

Progressives adhere to a set of policies that are fiscally responsible AND socially  sound that, we believe, are vital in ensuring a healthy democracy, a just society, and protections for all citizens. For this reason, a true Progressive can come from just about anywhere on the political spectrum.

This is not a term that is interchangeable with a political ideology nor can any single party rightly lay claim to it. Though politicians on both the left and right try to claim the title, the proof is in their actions. The reason they try is because they know the Progressive movement has power; power to adapt our nation to the challenges we face now and in the coming years without sacrificing our greatest national treasure – our people.

Original Programs

DLF Live

Our flagship program with J. Brandon Johnson features hilarious commentary, biting wit and always sage fatherly advice from with the occasional no-holds-barred style of tacking the events in Washington D.C. and around the country. Tune in for insightful interviews, candidate profiles, plus a deeper dive into the events and policies you care about.

Hair of the Dog

An informal morning show that recaps the news of the night before with delightfully snarky guests, commentary and educational topics for the bleary-eyed progressive. Airs M-W-F at 10am Eastern. This is your cure for the neoliberal hangover.

Rome's Rebellion

It's raw and on point when Rome Bethea discussed politics, culture and justice in the modern era. Rome doesn't mince words to center the truth and lays out the facts in a totally uncensored, free form style.

KC Inforail

Join host Se7en Blackman straight from Kansas city in this uproarious call-in show covering daily headlines, culture, relationships and much more. It is hosted live on Friday evenings and absolutely anything can happen. It is no wonder why this is the fasted growing podcast in the Midwest!

Absolutely! From  an initial deep dive into your campaign, whether you are running for office or fighting to pass a ballot initiative, we have experienced staff  who have helped winning campaigns through a customized approach. We can also refer you to local champions you can trust to provide  you with good advice. 

Let’s be honest, some people in power stay in power by referring Progressives to outsource providers who aren’t necessarily fighting for you. We have seen it time and time again – from ballot access fights to polling, you should be working with Progressives just as committed to the movement as you are.

We certainly can. Lets talk about your needs.

No. Our reporting must be honest and we adhere to journalistic  integrity. Campaign communications and journalism are not the same thing and on this point  we  will not compromise.

Yes! We are fortunate to have a world-class audio technician on staff who routinely helps Progressives fix archived podcast file and on-demand video files.  If he cannot correct the  issue, it probably is not fixable.

Yes. We regularly publish articles and research from freelance writers. If we publish your work we will pay you for it. No writer should ever trade their work for a simple byline. Your time and talents are valuable.
