Paducah Life Magazine | Award Winning Podcaster Sarah Stewart Holland

Paducah is rightfully proud of its many women making history. So, for this edition featuring award-winning podcaster Sarah Stewart Holland, we asked award-winning chef Sara Bradley to pose the questions from one Sara to another Sarah. These two hyper-creative women grew up together and now find their LIFE converging in boldly different and yet strikingly similar ways. The conclusion of their conversation? LIFE is good in Paducah.

In 2010, after several years in the nation’s capital working in the wide world of politics, Sarah Stewart Holland returned home to begin her family and the next phase of her LIFE. She dipped her toe into the world of blogging before ultimately recruiting her college friend, and now podcast partner Beth Silvers, to produce Pantsuit Politics.

The podcast is designed to provide for real conversations that help listeners understand politics, democracy, and the news—while still treating each other like thoughtful human beings.

“It takes a different approach to the news,” says Stewart-Holland. “We blend political analysis with important social and cultural undercurrents so subscribers don’t miss the big picture.”

Over years of discussing everything from abortion to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Sarah and Beth established basic rules of engagement which they describe in their books, Now What? How to Move Forward When We’re Divided (About Basically Everything) and I Think You’re Wrong (But I’m Listening): A Guide To Grace-Filled Political Conversation. Listeners describe Sarah and Beth as “America’s political therapists” and “our trusted, smarter friends who can help us make sense of the world.”

The podcast was named one of Apple Podcasts Best Podcasts of 2021 and has been featured in The New York Times, The Atlantic, and The Guardian. Sarah and Beth have been guests on Morning Joe as well as Good Morning America 3, where they were named a Podcast of the Morning in 2023.

You can listen to Pantsuit Politics at, or on any podcast app. They release new free episodes each Tuesday and Friday. They also offer two weekday shows to Premium subscribers: Good Morning, a 5-10 minute news brief covering the headlines, and More to Say, a 10-15 minute deep dive into a current event or legal issue.
