Culture Gabfest

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.




This week on Spoiler Specials, Sam Adams teams up with Slate Senior Editor Jeffrey Bloomer and the Editor in Chief of Screen Crush, Matt Singer to discuss the new M. Night Shyamalan movie, Glass. This is the third film in a trilogy that began with Unbreakable in 2000 and picked up again in 2016’s Split. The premise of all three movies is that comic-book-like superheroes live among us and have for centuries, but they keep a low profile and sometimes don’t even know they have powers. Does this film have the power to sway the favor of Sam, Jeffrey and Matt? This show gives you the power to find that out!
