Slate produces a podcast hosted by Susan Matthews called "Slow Burn" that has a different focus with every season. It has examined a number of topics, from Watergate to Biggie and Tupac. Season 7 is all about the Roe v. Wade decision in 1973. The podcast includes activists, judges and women who fought for, and against, abortion rights.

Slate has put up a "Slow Burn Roe v. Wade" billboard in Boise — and in the other states that have trigger laws across the country — to promote the podcast and the discourse around it and they should remain up for some time. Matthews said, for Season 7, she really wanted to do something different when thinking about the current discourse on abortion.
