Slate is now posting its Spoiler Special podcasts on Brow Beat. You can listen to past Spoiler Specials here.

For the latest podcast, Dana Stevens and Daniel Engber went on a trippy, CGI-saturated journey across the Pacific with Ang Lee’s new film Life of Pi, a 3-D adaptation of Yann Martel’s 2001 novel about a boy stranded on a lifeboat with a Bengal tiger.
