The Culture Gabfest: The “Are You Done Yet” Bonus Segment

Dana and Julia corner Stephen to ask him five questions about his recent book leave.


Stephen Metcalf is writing a book about the '80s and he doesn’t like to talk about it.

But Stephen’s back from a recent book leave, and Julia Turner and Dana Stevens, his Culture Gabfest co-panelists, have finally pinned him down. They were allowed five (and only five) questions about Stephen’s book project.

This week’s entire ad-free version of the Culture Gabfest is embedded below. To hear Stephen’s answers in this week’s Slate Plus bonus segment, go to 42:10, or click here.
