Listen to Episode 10 of Slate TV Club’s Better Call Saul podcast:

In the latest episode of Slate’s TV Club podcast about Better Call Saul, June Thomas and Seth Stevenson recap the season finale, “Marco,” reflect on the past 10 episodes, and predict what will happen in Season 2.


Also, Seth uses the word telos liberally throughout the podcast.

Plus, the hosts tally up the responses to last week’s listener challenges, and Seth recklessly issues a new listener challenge, despite this being the final podcast of the first season. (Oh, what the heck. Send your responses to They’re due sometime in early 2016.)
