What’s the worst thing about Slate’s podcasts? There are too many of them to keep up with every week.
So we’re launching the Best of Slate Podcasts—to let Slate Plus members hear the best segments from a week’s worth of podcasts. Each episode we’ll pull conversations from the Political Gabfest, the Culture Gabfest, and more and combine them into a single superpodcast that we hope will become the first thing you listen to every week.
The first episode features:
- The Political Gabfest on the chaotic race to succeed John Boehner as speaker of the House;
- Podcast for America on whether Donald Trump’s poll numbers are finally collapsing;
- Mom and Dad Are Fighting on what it’s like to be a parent with cancer;
- Hang Up and Listen on whether Louisiana State University running back Leonard Fournette should be allowed to play in the NFL;
- Slate Money on whether Jack Dorsey can be CEO of Twitter and Square at the same time;
- The Culture Gabfest asking, “Just how fat was Hamlet anyway?”
The Best of Slate Podcasts will appear in your Slate Plus podcast feed on Friday evenings, or you can subscribe from our podcast subscription page.
