    Spoiler Specials: Happiest Season

    Spoiler Specials: Happiest Season

    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. This week, Christina Cauterucci and June Thomas discuss Happiest Season, a charming new Christmas rom-com from writer-director Clea DuVall that premiered on Hulu on Nov. 25. Harper Caldwell (Mackenzie Davis) invites her girlfriend, Abby (Kristen Stewart) home for Christmas. Right before they arrive, Harper shares that the people in her hometown, or even in her family, don’t know that she’s gay. And since her father is running for mayor, the couple has to keep their relationship a secret. How will Abby navigate the holiday season while hiding her authentic self? What impact will the holiday weekend have on the lovebirds and their relationship?

    Read Christina Cauterucci’s review.

    Hit Parade: Friends in Low Places, Part 2

    Hit Parade: Friends in Low Places, Part 2

    Hit Parade is back for non-Slate Plus listeners! Upcoming episodes will be split into two parts, released two weeks apart. For the full episode right now, sign up for Slate Plus and you'll also get The Bridge, our Trivia show and bonus deep dive into our subjects. slate.com/hitparadeplus.
    Hit Parade continues the story of Garth Brooks. In the ’90s, he was country-authentic, ignored pop radio, and still utterly dominated the charts as the decade’s biggest multiplatinum megastar. Brooks took on chart competitors from Guns n’ Roses to Madonna to Mariah Carey and bested them all … until he tried taking on the Beatles. (And we’re still scratching our heads over that Chris Gaines thing.)

Dont "like" ,

Great brexit cast

Well done!

Disappointed

Very disappointed to hear the last podcast discussing the status of the latest Stimulus package. The host & guest seemed very flippant & sarcastic about something that is actually very serious to many people in this country. The extra $300 that Donald Trump ordered may not seem like a lot to you (obviously you are employed & receiving a paycheck), but as someone in NYC who is receiving it this week, at least it’s something. It’s a sad state of affairs when the representatives we elect can’t be bothered to find a compromise - something they are elected to do. And this is coming from a Democrat who is not a Trump supporter.
