On this week’s DoubleX Gabfest, Invisibilia co-host Hanna Rosin, New York magazine’s Noreen Malone, and managing producer of Slate podcasts June Thomas discuss the allegations against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore and ask why it is that Alabama Republicans chose such an unqualified candidate. Then they move onto a sexual offender they once actually liked, looking back on the Louis C.K. myth they once believed. Finally, on a lighter note, the trio discusses Amy Sedaris’ new hospitality show, At Home With Amy Sedaris.


Slate Plus: Is calling female mentors “nurturing” or “motherly” sexist?
