The Young Turks
- 1 Season
The Young Turks is a political and social commentary show that originally debuted in 2002 as a radio talk show. Originally for Sirius Satellite Radio, the show began broadcasting on its own YouTube channel as well in its later years. The Young Turks was originally started and hosted by Cenk Uygur, with his friend Ben Mankiewicz as co-creator and Dave Koller and Jill Pike rounding out as the main staff of the show. On both the radio and YouTube versions of the shows, the subjects were centered around American politics, society and essentially every possible issue that could be discussed as a commentary. Needless to say, all participants in the show had very variable political viewpoints that showed all perspectives. Aside from Mankiewicz, other co-hosts included Ana Kasparian, Brian Unger, Dave Rubin and Jimmy Dore who would take part in participating during the second part of the show. In 2011, The Young Turks would also air a weeknight edition of the show in the CurrentTv television channel.
