Customer Reviews

Slippery Sloping

5 Stars to the original format of tightly-written, detailed articles with straight-forward presentation. 0 Stars to the recent increase in "Gabfests." I know we must wade through podcast-commercials, and I accept that as a price of admission. But the gabfest trend is unfortunate. Each Gabfests tacks on up to another 2 minutes of participant pillow-fluffing, ad-hoc insider goofing and random giggling. Eventually, when the gabfesters finally make their way to the actual conversation portion of the podcast, they sometimes only marginally penetrate the surface of any topic.

More Andy Bowers - Less Gabfest

Wow, I didn't realize so many other people felt the same way I do until I read these reviews. If Slate were just Andy Bowers reading the interesting articles and commentary it would be one of the best podcasts out there – but the GABFEST needs to go (which it now does in my iTunes, I download the podcasts, keep the "Andy's" and delete the "Gabbers"). When I was reading the other reviewer's comments where he described them as "high schoolers" it finally dawned on me what it was the Gabbers reminded me of. Remember the 'nerd group' on the movie 'Dazed and Confused'? This emotionally transparent group could be them a few years later; Pompous, self indulgent journalism students running around Washington making sarcastic comments among themselves about a crowd they all secretly want to be a part of. SEND MORE ANDY!!

Funny, smart and informative

The Slate podcast received my first step into the world of podcasting several months ago, and set the bar so high (too high) that many of the other podcasts I've engaged have fallen short. The variety of columns that Bowers chooses (and reads with aplomb) leads to an interesting, surprising, eclectic mix, much like the magazine itself. Top shelf.
