Unfiltered: The best of the Slant podcast
There’s a reason why the Slant podcast is labeled “explicit” on iTunes. This week, Slant looks back on some of its most audacious interviews from the past six months.
First, Assemblyman Charles Barron speaks out on why he’s more worried about Gov. Andrew Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio than President Donald Trump. Then, City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito weighs in on how to put the last nail Rikers Island’s coffin. NY1 anchor Errol Louis talks about how "advocates and journalists need to come in and call bullshit” on segregation in New York City. Then Ben Kabak, author of the 2nd Avenue Sagas blog, weighs in on why Cuomo’s really to blame for New York City's subway mess.
