Julia Turner made a promise to listeners: If the Culture Gabfest was able to sell out its Oct. 13 live show in Santa Monica, California, Dana Stevens and Stephen Metcalf would perform a duet. In this week’s Slate Plus bonus segment, Stephen, Dana, and Julia make good on their promise. 

Listen to Stephen and Dana play “She’s Got a New Spell” by Billy Bragg and “Alison” by Elvis Costello.
