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, Dan Kois and TV editor at the New York times, Aisha Harris, discuss Mary Poppins Returns. How does the film stack up to the original? How bad is Lin Manuel-Miranda’s cockney accent? Is there a bigger conspiracy behind Julie Andrews declining to cameo?
Listen to them discuss below. Read Dana’s review of the film here. You can also check out past Spoiler Specials, and you can subscribe to the podcast on Apple Podcasts. Note: As the title indicates, each installment contains spoilers galore.
