Must Read Alaska Show ranked top political podcast in Alaska


Feedspot, a database company that ranks podcasts, has named the Must Read Alaska Show as the #1 political podcast in Alaska for 2024.

Second on the list is the East Anchorage Book Club, produced by Rep. Andrew Gray, an Anchorage Democrat, followed by ADN Politics from the Anchorage Daily News and With All Due Respect by Andrew Halcro, also a production of the ADN.

On ListenNotes, another ranking company, the Must Read Alaska Show is ranked in the top .5% out of the 4.3 million podcasts in the world. The Must Read Alaska Show launched in September, 2020 and has completed 376 episodes.

Host John Quick took over hosting the online show more two years ago after the first host, Scott Levesque, moved out of state. Quick has had national figures on his show, including governors, senators, financial advisors, faith and business leaders, and even the president of the nation of Palau. Last week he interviewed the Alaska president of the AFL-CIO, Joelle Hall.

“I really enjoy hearing from people from all walks of life, and view each podcast as a human interest piece highlighting the work my guest does, regardless of his or her politics,” Quick said. He produces the show from his home in Nikiski on the Kenai Peninsula.

Last week, Quick interviewed the former governor of Missouri, Eric Greitens, who is a former Navy SEAL and who now engages in humanitarian work around the world. You can hear Gov. Greitens, who has authored the book, “Strength and Courage,” about his experiences on the battlefield and in the Governor’s Office of the Show Me State, at this link.
