Dan Wotherspoon produces Mormon Matters. I have no idea what political views he has.
But if I were to hazard a guess as to the politics of the majority of interviewees, panelists, and audience members, yes, I'd guess more are left-wing than right-wing. But that's just a guess.
Most of the episodes themselves are not about politics, but rather about "things Mormon," from theology, to history, to culture. One episode I enjoyed was #62: "A Christmas Primer: Exploring the Nativity in Scripture, Legend, History, and Hearts." A more recent one (#s 94-95) was about understanding suicide.
