Indeed the Best Magazine

The best magazine in print today. Those properties don’t always travel as well in the podcast format. The guests/topics are often interesting, sometimes compelling. David Remnick is mult-italented: nearly as keen a podcast host as he is an editor. There is value in brevity however, some topics require the long form.

What is this?

I’m not exactly sure what I’m listening to here. I specifically wanted to learn more about RFK, (he is increasingly in the news). I was listening to the July interview expecting a question and response format, but the editing keeps pausing before a full response from RFK, inserting an overlay of the journalist's thoughts and additional information about the topics RFK is speaking about. However, we are not hearing the words from RFKs own mouth. It’s rather frustrating…

Woke bubble

A great shame the New Yorker has for years now succumbed to a self-righteous, shrilly far-left ideology that refuses to see or is shockingly blind to its own one-sided assumptions and biases. Used to be a fount of thought-provoking, credible writing and journalism that explored a variety of ideas. No longer.
