I'm a major fan of the Slate podcast, Political Gabfest. It comes out once a week on Fridays, and I get to the shop early, download it, and knit and listen (my little Friday morning treat.) One of the commentators, Emily Bazelon*, mentioned she's a knitter! Oh, little me, I was so excited.
*Emily is one of my all-time favorite columnists - she often writes about the Supreme Court and national politics. She is flippin' smart and insightful.
