Cocktail Chatter: Check out Slate's Political Gabfest
Fourth short plug for a podcast I've been enjoyably consuming. Slate.com's Political Gabfest is pretty great. John Dickerson, David Plotz and Emily Bazelon are all very intelligent and manage to get to a lively level of barely moderated banter each week. The format here is three people talking about three main topicsfor half an hour and each throwing in a last-couple-minutes segment of cocktail chatter i.e. something interesting to talk about while you're sipping a drink at a party on the weekend. Nice for a change instead of the usual and unusual suspects of pundits making the rounds through the various other programs I tune into. Worth listening to.
