This week on the Culture Gabfest Slate Plus bonus segment, hosts Dana Stevens and Stephen Metcalf are joined by feature writer and critic Chris Molanphy to share their guilty-pleasure workout songs. What bass lines bring out their inner beasts during exercise? Who has a better pump-up song—the Goo Goo Dolls or Bruce Springsteen? Can the soundtrack from a classic film inspire intense cardio? And do we need music to enhance our workout regimens?

Here’s what the other podcasts discussed on their Slate Plus bonus segments from the past week:

On this week’s Hang Up and Listen bonus segment, hosts Stefan Fatsis, Josh Levin, and Mike Pesca chatted with Seth Stevenson about his dream to go to umpire school. To find out more about the campaign, visit Slate.com/umpire.
