In the year leading up the invasion, George W. Bush sketched his justification for the war: good vs. evil, us vs. them. The president wasn’t interested in fleshing out the details beyond that, but lots of other people were. How did intellectuals, on both the right and left, help bolster the Bush administration’s case for war? And how much responsibility should they bear for one of America’s deadliest mistakes? Season 5 of Slow Burn is produced by Noreen Malone, Jayson De Leon, and Sophie Summergrad. Mixing by Merritt Jacob. Slate Plus members get bonus episodes of Slow Burn and ad-free podcast feeds.

Rachelle and Madison discuss Elon Musk’s episode of Saturday Night Live. Specifically they break down the ”Gen Z Hospital” sketch, where everybody seems to be speaking in internet slang, and the backlash to it. Rachelle explains how all the language used isn’t just from the internet or from Zoomers but from African-American Vernacular English. This isn’t a new thing, of course—white Americans have been appropriating Black culture for as long as America has been around—but as this Paper magazine article by Rob Dozier points out, the internet has made it particularly easy for those words to lose their original context.

Diane feels like she’s constantly picking fights with her partner Mohammed—when he forgets to grab tomatoes from the grocery store or drops the ball on planning their son’s birthday party. Their conflicts are complicated by layers of cultural differences: Mohammed is a Syrian refugee, Diane is an American, and they live in the Netherlands. “He lived through a war, so I can’t win any argument,” says Diane, who is increasingly desperate to find a solution. On this episode of How To!, we bring on investigative journalist Amanda Ripley, author of High Conflict: Why We Get Trapped and How We Get Out. Amanda reveals that conflict can actually be good—as long as anger, and not contempt, is at its core. Drawing from her research on astronauts, gang members and politicians, Amanda coaches Diane through techniques that can help all of us have better fights.  If you liked this episode, check out: “How To Win Arguments Like a Hostage Negotiator.” Do you have a problem that needs solving?

I'm so angry at Facebook's decision to run lies in political ads that I deleted it but my elderly parents use it so I was forced to keep the lite version except if someone wants me to look at, they have to text me first. My teenager and her friends would not be caught dead on Facebook and I will make sure I do everything to educate her about what an unethical dirty platform it is and how it willfully hurt American elections. In a country where the wealth gap is criminal and public education so wanting that poor people dont even speak English anymore, business ethics and principled action should be a priority. It is the big questions that people care about, not the difficulties of managing inner bureaucracies.

Wow, I didn't realize so many other people felt the same way I do until I read these reviews. If Slate were just Andy Bowers reading the interesting articles and commentary it would be one of the best podcasts out there – but the GABFEST needs to go (which it now does in my iTunes, I download the podcasts, keep the "Andy's" and delete the "Gabbers"). When I was reading the other reviewer's comments where he described them as "high schoolers" it finally dawned on me what it was the Gabbers reminded me of. Remember the 'nerd group' on the movie 'Dazed and Confused'? This emotionally transparent group could be them a few years later; Pompous, self indulgent journalism students running around Washington making sarcastic comments among themselves about a crowd they all secretly want to be a part of. SEND MORE ANDY!!

5 Stars to the original format of tightly-written, detailed articles with straight-forward presentation. 0 Stars to the recent increase in "Gabfests." I know we must wade through podcast-commercials, and I accept that as a price of admission. But the gabfest trend is unfortunate. Each Gabfests tacks on up to another 2 minutes of participant pillow-fluffing, ad-hoc insider goofing and random giggling. Eventually, when the gabfesters finally make their way to the actual conversation portion of the podcast, they sometimes only marginally penetrate the surface of any topic.
