Expected from Slate

This podcast is almost entirely wealthy east coast liberals telling all the rubes out in flyover country why they’re all wrong.

Linda from PA ,

Keep the factual give and take going

The most recent tone is very welcome.
Facts, calmly presented- no bickering.
I want to hear Bazelon, Dickerson and Plotz telling me and each other what they are thinking. Don’t perform. Just be yourselves.

Houston Red ,

Perennially Joyful

I just finished my weekly Gabfest. As always the interplay of the gabbers cheered me up. MORE WHALES!
