Best two hours of the month
This is just great if you are a regular reader of Metafilter, and will likely introduce you to a ton of interesting stuff in an engaging way even if you're not.
Lots of fun
If you read MetaFilter, you'll enjoy hearing the hosts banter about their favorite items from the previous month. If you don't read MF, you owe it to yourself to check out one of the most interesting and intelligent sites on the Internet.
A very long soak in MetaFilter
This is an inside-baseball, in-depth slice of MetaFilter.com from the perspective of three of the site’s longest running moderators. (Two now retired!) If you groove on the site this is a way to vicariously relive a small fraction of the previous month. If you don’t know anything about the site, this is a pretty heavy introduction.
