Latest notable terms from this week’s Slate Culture Gabfest and Slate Political Gabfest (feel free to email me suggestions or leave them in the comments to the main page). Dana was the host for Culture Gabfest this week, filling in for Steve Metcalf; she did a great job. It’s become my favorite podcast, overtaking the Political Gabfest (in part because I disagree so much politically with the leftish politics of the latter–though Plotz can surprise, e.g. with his “contrarian” views on gridlock, the campaign finance decision, etc., while Emily routinely takes the mainstream, statist line at the same time she adopts the superior liberal “more-tolerant” pose).
