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. Below, our film critic Dana Stevens talks with Forrest Wickman about Interstellar, Christopher Nolan’s new sci-fi epic. Was Nolan able to balance the intergalactic spectacle with the human drama? Are the characters human enough for us to care? Do we even fully understand what happens at the end of the movie?
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.
