Skimming the NYTimes online is enough to satiate my daily news habit. Every Friday I'll take in the New Yorker Political Scene podcast—that's about all the news I can mainline for a week. Executive editor Dorothy Wickenden sets the table and then gets out of the way as a couple of other New Yorker editors weigh in on the week's topic. She moves the conversation along but doesn't feel compelled to give an opinion, simply setting up the next logical inquiry and letting her guests deliver their opinions. Smart, concise and rarely argumentative, this podcast exhibits how complicated subjects ought to be chewed upon.
