On the Spoiler Special podcast, Slate critics discuss movies—and the occasional TV show—in full, spoiler-filled detail. Below, Brow Beat editor David Haglund talks with Miriam Krule and Willa Paskin about Season 1 of Amazon’s new series Transparent. What is the show’s relationship to Jewishness? How do the performances stack up? And is it really the best television discovery of the fall, as critics claim?

Listen to them discuss these and other questions below. You can also check out past Spoiler Specials in our archive, and you can subscribe to the podcast on iTunes. Note: As the title indicates, each installment contains spoilers galore.
