About the Show
New York Times critic Dwight Garner says, “The Slate Culture Gabfest is one of the highlights of my week.” The award-winning Culturefest features Slate culture critics Stephen Metcalf, Dana Stevens, and Julia Turner debating the week in culture, from highbrow to pop.
Stephen Metcalf is Slate’s critic at large. He is working on a book about the 1980s.
This week on the Culture Gabfest, Stephen Metcalf, Dana Stevens, and Julia Turner discuss the classic horror movie Rosemary’s Baby in light of Halloween. Next, they chat about Amazon Prime’s new series Modern Love, an adaptation of the popular New York Timespersonal-essay column. Finally, they check in with Los Angeles Timesstaff writer Randall Roberts about Morrissey and the former Smiths frontman’s far-right politics.
On Slate Plus, the hosts discuss Martin Scorsese and other filmmakers’ recent comments on the quality of Marvel movies.
