Filibuster podcast: Sorting out D.C. United’s loss to Orlando, and this weekend’s game at Chicago

Filibuster podcast: Sorting out D.C. United’s loss to Orlando, and this weekend’s game at Chicago

We finally have a D.C. United game about which to talk, but it didn’t end up going the way any of us wanted. Ben, Adam, and Jason talk D.C. United’s game against Orlando City SC (after diverting into Old Man Ben’s Music Corner) and we start off by talking about Sean Franklin in particular and the defense in general, including advocating for Jalen Robinson and wondering who should actually be starting. We also talk about the ice cold play of D.C. United’s forwards and what solutions might be found there.

In the second segment we talk about the Chicago Fire and D.C. United’s game against them this weekend. We discuss the most recent Dax McCarty trade, their recent swoon, and Veljko Paunovic’s style. We also discuss the way they have built that team and how D.C. United can break them down. Give it a listen!

We want to again thank everyone who has supported us on Patreon and who allow us to continue to make this show and make it better; if you want to help us, click the…

The power of podcasting

The power of podcasting

Look around you. At the people on the train, in your office, on the street. Joggers, walkers, pram-pushers. All sporting earphones. Many are dialled into their favourite music, but it’s increasingly likely that they’re immersed in their favourite podcast. In a world where so many avoid traditional communication, we’re turning to the spoken word for solace.

Podcasts have had spikes of popularity since emerging as part of the portable digital boom of the early noughties. But through raised production values, format and genre diversity, ease of use and convenience, they have become far more than a niche product in recent years. Hell, podcasting has even become part of Australian university journalism courses.

For many, it’s podcasting’s intimacy – as if hosts are addressing you and you alone – that appeals. Like a modern twist on the simpler times of wireless radio, albeit…

On this week’s episode of my podcast, I Have to Ask, I spoke with David Remnick, the editor of the New Yorker. Remnick began editing the magazine in 1998; before then, he was a staff writer for the magazine and a Moscow correspondent for the Washington Post. His coverage of the fall of communism later became the book Lenin’s Tomb, which won the Pulitzer Prize. In addition to editing the magazine, Remnick, now 58, continues to write frequently on Russia, Israel, music, and Donald Trump. He also hosts the New Yorker Radio Hour. His most recent piece was a long profile of Hillary Clinton.

Isaac Chotiner is a Slate staff writer.

Below is an edited transcript of part of the show. In it, we discuss whether Hillary hatred has gone too far, the race versus class debate about Trump’s victory, and why Obama is…

'Pretty For An Aboriginal' Is Australia's Most Charming And Radical New Podcast

'Pretty For An Aboriginal' Is Australia's Most Charming And Radical New Podcast

We asked Miranda Tapsell all about it.

Miranda Tapsell is a delightful person to spend 45 minutes on the phone with. When she joins me to talk about Pretty For An Aboriginal, her brand-new BuzzFeed podcast with friend and colleague Nakkiah Lui, I ask her how the day is. “Oh good. It’s been good. In those in-between times,” she tells me. “Just hustlin’ in the meantime!” I have to laugh, because Tapsell is so bright and casual she radiates warmth right through the phone.

This is exactly what it’s like listening to Pretty For An Aboriginal. The first episode (which also features Aussie rapper/writer/legend Briggs) has already bumped the podcast up to number 10 on the iTunes rankings list — and for good reason. Together, Tapsell and Lui are a charming, sharp and radical presence.

Pretty For An Aboriginal is totally unlike anything that’s been unleashed on the Australian media so far. A space where two black women can talk to each other and share their experience…
