Listen to Episode 596 of Slate’s The Gist:
If you had to engineer the perfect wait time for a meal, how would you do it? On The Gist, Dan Pashman explains the art of anticipation as applied to food. Pashman is the host of WNYC’s The Sporkful. Check out his show’s new series on food, race, and culture: “Who Is This Restaurant For?”
In the Spiel, what should we call Trump’s former defectors? Undefectors? Reflectors?
We want you to tell us about the podcasts you enjoy and how often you listen to them. So we created a survey that takes just a couple of minutes to complete. If you fill it out, you’ll help Panoply to make great podcasts about the things you love. And things you didn’t even know you loved.
To fill out the survey, just go to www.panoply.fm/survey.
