Voted “Favorite Political Podcast” by iTunes listeners. Stephen Colbert says "Everybody should listen to the Slate Political Gabfest." The Gabfest, featuring Slate's Emily Bazelon, John Dickerson, and David Plotz, is the kind of informal and irreverent discussion Washington journalists have after hours over drinks.

Customer Reviews

great work

love the podcast ... pro-dem (which is fine) ... I like the comradery between the three hosts and the different perspectives they each give ... even though they may all agree with one side of a yes/no issue, they all break the simple issue down and explain their rational fully ... they asked for new reviews, so I've tried to update mine ... I honestly look forward to it each and every week, running on my treadmill while catching up on what's going down in Washington. Thanks for the great product you guys put out each week.

My favourite podcast!

I subscribe to about 20 podcasts and this one is my favourite. The debate is healthy and fair even though obviously democratic. As a canadian listener, these issues are still meaningful and interesting to me.

2 out of 3 ain't bad

I think John and Emily are great but David is too partisan and takes many discussions away from rational debate and down a sometimes ugly, partisan road.
