On this week's episode of Gabfest Radio, Political Gabfest panelists Emily Bazelon, John Dickerson, and David Plotz discuss why the Supreme Court may soon have to take another marriage equality case and whether a Massachusetts law that puts a buffer between abortion protesters and clinics violates the First Amendment.
On the Culture Gabfest, panelists Stephen Metcalf, Dana Stevens, and Julia Turner discuss True Detective, an HBO crime drama starring Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey as odd-couple detectives hunting for a serial killer in southern Louisiana. Next the gabbers turn to The Spoils of Babylon, a star-studded series on IFC that parodies the sort of miniseries-melodrama that was popular in the early 1980s. Finally, the critics welcome Chris Molanphy, Slate contributor and music critic, to discuss the absence of African-American recording artists at the top of last year’s Billboard charts.
