I think I’m going to start reading Slate more often. Having read many an article linked by my brother or Jason Kottke, I’m finding that I enjoy they’re writing style. The editorial writing style coupled with plenty of real fact and news substance makes me feel like I’m reading The Daily Show, only toned down a bit, and without the studio audience.

You need to subscribe to Slate podcasts! They’re awesome! As you mentioned those guys are funny, but also very informative and relevant. Check out their Gabfest roundtable discussions.Also, just as valuable is the Slate Explainer Podcast. A woman with a thick Scottish accent responds to people asking to have things explained.Anything from “Can the Amish Ride in Helicopters?” to “How Do You Fire an Autoworker?”Priceless!
