The live event in 92YTribeca’s mainstage sold out fast, but you can still see the Slate Political Gabfest via simulcast in our screening room. Simulcast attendees will be able to participate in the audience Q&A and book signing, too, and will have the opportunity to meet Emily, John and David.

Slate's Emily Bazelon, John Dickerson and David Plotz bring their popular and acclaimed weekly political podcast back to 92YTribeca for another live performance in New York.

They'll discuss the challenges that face the president and Congress in the coming months, hot political stories of the week and then will wrap it all up with Cocktail Chatter. Afterwards, participate in the dialogue during an audience Q&A.
