    • Killing Herd Animals
      One of the great crimes and tragedies of our world is how we treat the animals we eat (or whose milk or eggs or other products we eat and use.) Factory farming keeps them in tiny enclosures, feeds them monotonous foods, and then when they’re slaughtered it’s a terrible experience: they’re terrified and die in […]

Short review of podcasts

Podcasts I can’t listen to anymore:

  1. Pod Save America – Hosts are too smug, too frat boy, too guys sitting around reminiscing about the good old days. Pass.
  2. Mueller She Wrote – Good concept, sorely in need of an editor.
  3. Political Gabfest (Slate) – WAY too northeast corridor privileged upper class.
  4. The Weeds – I think this is a Vox podcast. Matt Yglesias’s voice is vocal frying, whining “nails on chalkboard” unlistenable. Very distracting.
  5. Ezra Klein Show – This one is on the bubble for me. His guests seem like variations on the same theme.

Podcasts I find useful/interesting:

  1. Stay Tuned with Preet Bharara – Knowledgeable, great guests, good sense of humor. Doesn’t take himself too seriously.
  2. Fivethirtyeight– Every data geek on this podcast has a unique personality. Plus, you know, moar data.
  3. Trumpcast– Virginia Heffernan has kept this podcast going well past it’s projected expiration date. It’s still pretty good.
  4. Why Is This Happening? With Chris Hayes – This one can be surprisingly good on occasion with “of the moment” topics and interviews.

Not to be missed podcast series:

  1. Slow Burn– This is a history of Watergate starting with Martha Mitchell to the resignation. Scarily relevant.
  2. Bag Man– This podcast digs deep into the role of Spiro Agnew during the Nixon administration years. Full of shocking surprises and revelations.

Got any recommendations? Put them in the comments.

I came home to this yesterday:

Greeaaaat.

Anyone got any ideas on how to fix this that doesn’t involve wads of cash?

(Let us all bow our heads in memory of the garbage bin)

  1. Well, if u are feeling for something utterly non political and a bit creepy in this almost-Halloween podcast world, I would suggest Unexplained with Richard McLean Smith (a Brit who can really write)…

  2. Retaining wall, can’t tell by the pic?
