A while ago, I did a series of posts called ‘People I Read’. In that series, I gave little blurbs about the other blogs and sites I regularly read. It was sort of a callback to the blogrolls of the early days of blogs. I thought it would be nice to do something similar for the podcasts I listen to. So here is a new series of blurbs. As with the previous series, I’ll try to put up a new one every couple of weeks.
Vox.com is well known as a place to go for explanatory journalism, providing context to current and ongoing news stories so that people can know more than the headlines. The Weeds is one of its companion podcasts, where Ezra Klein, Sarah Kliff, and Matthew Yglesias provide a deep dive into one or more current stories. It’s a great place to learn more about bank regulations, steel tariffs, Medicaid work requirements, or whatever else is in the news.
