About the Superfest West:

If David Plotz debated Stephen Metcalf, who would win? How about Emily Bazelon and Dana Stevens? The audience will see all sorts of exciting and unexpected combinations and conversations at this first ever Slate podcast crossover event in San Francisco on Oct. 5. We’re combining Slate's Political and Culture Gabfests into a one-of-a-kind “Superfest West” at the Regency Ballroom. This memorable evening will be hosted by Mike Pesca, the host of Slate’s daily podcast The Gist and a contributor to Hang Up and Listen.

About the L.A. CultureFest: 

Join Slate editor-in-chief Julia Turner, Slate movie critic Dana Stevens, and Slate critic at large Stephen Metcalf for a provocative and wildly entertaining evening of conversation and analysis of cultural news. They’ll cover the best of fall culture, from film to TV to music and more, and special guests—including John August and Craig Mazin of the popular screenwriting podcast Scriptnotes will be on hand to ignite thought-provoking conversations.

Access to the general public starts on Friday, but your discount code is good until the events sell out.
