On the Spoiler Special podcast, Slate critics discuss movies, the occasional TV show, and, once in a blue moon, another podcast, in full, spoiler-filled detail. In this week’s episode, Slate’s movie critic, Dana Stevens, and freelance writer Rachel Syme spoil Phantom Thread. What’s this movie about? How does Daniel Day-Lewis fare in what he claims is his final film? Can a relationship filled with actual poison ever be healthy?
Note: As the title indicates, each installment contains spoilers galore.
Podcast production by Daniel Schroeder.
