You may most recently remember him, Jacob Soboroff, from the west coast end of HuffPost Live. She, Cara Santa Maria, is a former senior science correspondent for The Huffington Post and host of embedded HuffPo Web series Talk Nerdy To Me.

Together the pair are now co-hosting TakePart Live, the weekday late-night talk show component (12 a.m. ET/9 p.m. PT) of Participant Media’s new TV network Pivot, which launched yesterday. The pair looked comfortable on their handsome new set as they discussed – yes, live – Edward Snowden and various other topics.

The program promises to find the “conversations and stories that matter to Millennials” and hopes to establish itself as a key part of a Participant spin wheel that also includes takepart.com. Pivot is just getting rolling as far as broadcast partners ¬†are concerned. On AT&T U-Verse for example, you can find Soboroff, Maria and co. at channel 1492.
