Listen to Episode 355 of Slate’s The Gist:
On The Gist, we bring you a Pesca-moderated panel recorded live from Politicon in Los Angeles. Panelists include actor Tony Hale, who plays a body man on TV, and Reggie Love, a real-life body man for six years. We’ll learn what goes into their respective roles—for Love, working as Barack Obama’s right-hand man and confidante throughout the 2008 campaign and into his first days at the White House, and for Hale, playing the assistant to Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ VP and now president on HBO’s Veep. Love’s the author of Power Forward: My Presidential Education.
For The Spiel, the return of talk show karaoke.
