On the Spoiler Special podcast, Slate critics discuss movies, the occasional TV show, and, once in a blue moon, another podcast, in full, spoiler-filled detail. Slate’s Willa Paskin, J. Bryan Lowder, Katy Waldman, and Miriam Krule discuss the entire third season of House of Cards, including the show’s evolution from political drama to relationship drama, Frank’s sexuality, and whether or not that was the best mid-urination international diplomacy ever seen on TV.
