Slate podcasts

These are all well done, well rehearsed and very educational for all us “little people” who live outside the (apparently) greatest democracy in the world. Their eyes are closely fixed on their own navels: really, if you close your eyes and just listen it’s as if those annoying Other Countries of the whole world just disappear......
