In a special Aug. 10 edition of the Cultural Gabfest’s Slate Plus bonus segment, Stephen Metcalf, Julia Turner, and Dana Stevens answer audience questions live from the Mount. Is there a difference between artists’ houses and politicians’ houses? What do the hosts think about the rise of Bachelor and Bachelorette fantasy leagues, and would they ever participate? And what has happened to the “trans moment”—that is, has the idea of transgender issues already gone away in our cultural climate? The hosts discuss these questions and more.

Correction, Aug. 16: An earlier version of this article described the content of the main body of the episode, not the Plus segment.
