Podcasts | The Culture Gabfest – Slate magazine’s critics debate the week in culture from highbrow to pop

In The Culture Gabfest podcast, Slate.com’s cultural critics Stephen Metcalf, Dana Stevens, and Julia Turner discuss the latest movies, television, books and more.

Conceptually similar to NPR’s Pop Culture Happy Hour is Slate‘s Culture Gabfest. Stephen Metcalf, Julia Turner, and Dana Stevens talk about the latest movies, television, and books.

They sometimes cover topics that verge on the esoteric, but they do it in such an engaging and articulate matter that they keep me engaged.

My favorite part of the show each week is a segment called “Endorsements”, where each panel member talks about a pop culture item that is bringing him or her joy in that particular week.
