I have a roster of podcasts that I listen to every week. One of my favorites – reserved specifically for my commute to work on Friday mornings – is Slate’s Political Gabfest hosted by our guest David Plotz. In addition to hosting the Gabfest, David serves as the editor of Slate, an online magazine.
I was delighted to have the opportunity to be in conversation with him for this week’s episode. Be sure to check out the Slate Political Gabfest – you’ll love it!
