Used to be good. Terrible now

I used to love this podcast but it has become unlistenable. The panelists are smart but seem to have made a collective decision to be idiots. They have decided to normalize every horrifying trump action. The level of bored complacency and resignation is awful. Have an opinion! Either way. They come across as comfortable, bored, too spoiled to care about anything beyond their tedious, insular, east coast centric world view. If you value critical thought, avoid Gabfest like the plague.

Gabfest

Bazelon and Dickerson are great, Plotz is okay. Give it a shot!

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.
