Very disappointed to hear the last podcast discussing the status of the latest Stimulus package. The host & guest seemed very flippant & sarcastic about something that is actually very serious to many people in this country. The extra $300 that Donald Trump ordered may not seem like a lot...Read full review »

Excellent interview of Mary Trump on Trumpcast today.

I’m not a fan of the woman who proselytizes for unfettered free markets, though...I can read Supply Side Jesus for that.

I’ve been Podcasting in northern Canada for years and didn’t find Gist until recently. Gist host Mike Pesca is bright, articulate and intense. I admire his persuasive argument. As a teacher, I appreciate his literacy. Every topic is relevant and his guests have something to offer. Good job. ...Read full review »

Mike Pesca has the great gift of being deeply insightful and informative AND hilarious at the same time. Badly needed at a time when fear and despair is in abundant supply.

When the one lady host talked I thought the report kicked into x2 play mode.Chill out and talk normally please!

Slate podcasts are the best, informative, entertaining, professional yet personal. I listen to a lot of podcasts, and they are pretty much all Slate.

Long time subscriber to Slate Plus. The quality and variety of content in their daily feed is really awesome.
SweetINXS via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/16/19
Core gabfests are great, pesca is always entertaining, newer gabfests are good and give a nice perspective from alternative and under-heard points of views. Would be nice to tease series instead of posting the full episodes of the entire series (e.g. slow burn, decoder ring). Might get a more...Read full review »

I grew up being told I was full of beans 😁 Great Show!

Wow, the Represent #48 interview with Betty Gilpin is hard to watch. The interviewer who clearly has not seen this actresses’ work and other podcast interviews and she asks these stupid questions, at one point saying that because the actress is blonde and young, how does she feel how easy it is...Read full review »

Too bad in your review of 3 Days of the Condor you did not do more research and see that the movie has been updated in a series called Condor to reflect a more modern paranoia premise which you were lamenting in your podcast.

Well done!

This is a horrible show hosted and produced by horrible and shameful people the hosts are horrible people and everyone involved is a hack

I love most of Slates podcasts and was excited at the prospect of a daily pop of content - but, this seems to only come out weekly? Then why call it the “Daily Feed”?
Lolapants via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/08/18
I subscribe to Slate Plus and suggest you do to. Part of the fun is the stream of interesting, ad-free podcasts, from Mike Pesca's "The Gist" to Slate Academy courses. Highly recommended.Read full review »

I subscribe to a lot of Slate pods but check this every day for a new gem and I often find it. How else would I find so many Slate podcasts?
PhelineCat via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/08/18
Josh had a great format - listen, read & not so important but interesting need to know news - he also has a great ‘radio’ voice. Thanks for reconsidering the ‘old’ format and the ‘cool voice’ dude! 😊

Enjoy this informed team
janekgee via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/15/18
2/3 of the episode was very good and I enjoyed hearing John’s perspective especially. 1/3 of the episode was painful: pretty much every time Emily interjected anything. If she could turn her volume down and speak more thoughtfully without interrupting, it would make her presentation much better...Read full review »

This is a good resource for finding new podcasts. Just when I think I have all the Slate podcasts I am interested in, a new one comes along.
SJGust via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/02/17
I love the podcasts, esp. the two Gabfests, but HATE having to scroll down through 3 years of podcasts to get to this week’s offerings. Every. Single. Time.

This is a mediocre podcast that is fraudulently wrong. It was better when it was 90 seconds.

Next time you have a guest join, ask them to at least know what they are talking about. Kristen, please read about the way nuclear weapons are set up in the US before you speak. In this cast, you show how much money you wasted on your college tuition.

As folks who refuse to normalize the malevolent idiocy of this kleptocratic blunderbuss of a President, Trumpcast makes each day of this administration a bit more bearable.
Emma2472 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/23/17
Great way to catch subjects or discussions you might miss if you don't subscribe to the individual podcasts. Love Pike Pesca's The Gist (usually, unless there is a sports segment) and 90 Seconds. Was thrilled to catch the one about how contemporary librarians (or one librarian in...Read full review »

I really look forward to this every two weeks. It's like sitting around (possibly with a bottle of wine) with your really smart and funny friends discussing politics, culture, current events, etc., as they relate to women.Read full review »

Slate's podcasts are the best of the lot. And this one is so great. It has almost surpassed the Culture Gabfest podcast as the leading one. Keep up the excellent research, the depth of the subject. Love it.Read full review »

I'm a chart nerd and have been since I was a kid so downloaded as soon as I heard another Slate show recommend it. Both episodes have been full of fascinating facts & stats and just brilliantly put together. I just wish the podcast was easier to find with it's only dedicated podcast...Read full review »

I love Slate podcasts so I thought I would give this one a turn. Sounds like InfoWars for the left. What a joke!

Please, enough of that moron. You have some intelligent sounding ladies, let them do the talking. What does Pesca have on you all, anyway?

I really enjoy getting these shows, especially Political Gabfest, Money and Amicus

... having to listen to the latest amateur editing, this time (8/30/16) the Sports podcast, stops and starts, "3 2 1" and all that, I'm done. And I don't mind adverts, but I do mind them pushing the capitalist propaganda foisted on us by the criminal organization JP Morgan Chase....Read full review »

Tried to get though one episode and it was too painful. Obviously these people care more about the sound of their own voice then quality. I will never listen to this station ever again.

Great commentary on the all the latest acts in the political circus.
