    Spoiler Specials: An American Pickle

    Spoiler Specials: An American Pickle

    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, Dana Stevens, Slate’s movie critic, is joined by Isaac Butler, writer, theater director, and co-host of Slate’s podcast Working, to spoil An American Pickle. Seth Rogen stars as Herschel Greenbaum, a man who wakes up after being preserved in pickle brine for a century, and Ben Greenbaum, Herschel’s only living descendant. Can Herschel adapt to the contemporary world? Will Ben and Herschel bond despite generational and value differences? How convincing is Seth Rogen as both of these men?

    You can read Marissa Martinelli’s interview with An American Pickle’s prop master here.

    You can read Matthew Dessem’s piece on pickle related catastrophes here. 

    Note: As the title indicates, this podcast contains spoilers galore.
