He tells us about the Jewish immigrant colony in Argentina that was home to Jewish gauchos, and how he went about solving a series of mysterious 1897 murders in the thriving Jewish enclave.  We want to hear from you!

Mike Pesca's Esprit de Corps: The Gist Wipes The Slate Clean And Flies Solo

The Unspeakable Podcast

Play Episode Listen Later Feb 21, 2022 74:27


For seven years Mike Pesca hosted the political commentary podcast The Gist under the aegis of the Slate Media Company. The show became the longest running daily podcast of all time, racking up somewhere around 1400 episodes and attracting an enormous audience that accounted for a significant portion of Slate's revenue. Last February, Slate suspended The Gist following an office meltdown over a race-related—actually a race vocabulary-related— discussion on the company Slack channel. This led to a seven-month investigation that made Mike yet another high profile casualty of cancel culture. He's anything but canceled though, which is proven by the return of The Gist, which he's doing on his own steam. Mike spoke with Meghan about what went down with the old Gist (which he calls Season One, even though it lasted seven years) and what's coming up for the podcast going forward. They also talked about what makes podcasts work, how much effort podcasts require and what it was like working at NPR back when, as it Mike put, workplaces of all kinds came with a certain esprit du corp — or jovial feeling of pride and unity in an organization. Somewhere along the way, Mike points out, esprit de corps was replaced with struggle sessions.   Guest Bio: Mike Pesca is the host and creator of The Gist, the longest running daily news podcast, and the author of Upon Further Review: The Greatest What-Ifs In Sports History. In addition to guest-hosting NPR Programs All Things Considered and the news quiz Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me, Mike's work has been featured on This American Life, Radiolab, and Planet Money. He has frequently appeared on MSNBC, CNN, and The PBS Newshour, and written for The Washington Post, The Guardian, GQ, Slate, and Baseball Prospectus.

And Tre'vell's personal favorite: nig nogs. The word has been in the news rather recently with a number of newsrooms having to address its use by members of its staff. It seems the word is always up for debate in white spaces, among non-Black POC and even Black folks about who can and can't and who should or shouldn't use the word. Jarrett and Tre'vell examine the debate of it all and share their own experiences with its use. But first…T(ea) TimeTre'vell and Jarrett discuss media burn-out and the cost of remaining plugged in online. DIS/Honorable MentionsThis week, Jarrett has an honorable mention for the new Youtube Original series Super Sema as well as an honorable mention for LA artists D Smoke and Sir.
