Where sharp political analysis meets informal and irreverent discussion. Voted “Favorite Political Podcast” by Apple Podcasts listeners. Stephen Colbert says, “Everybody should listen to the Slate Political Gabfest.”

The Slate Political Gabfest launched in 2005, making it one of the very first political podcasts and the first to attain wide popularity. On every episode of Political Gabfest, New York Times Magazine Emily Bazelon, 60 Minutes correspondent John Dickerson, and CEO of Atlas Obscura David Plotz, tackle three topics from the world of politics, then offer a tidbit of “cocktail chatter” to close the episode.
