On this week’s episode of Gabfest Radio, Political Gabfest panelists Emily Bazelon, John Dickerson, and David Plotz discuss Chris Christie's big win and Rand Paul's plagiarism problem.

On the Culture Gabfest, panelists Stephen Metcalf, Dana Stevens, and Julia Turner discuss the Palme d’Or-winning film Blue is the Warmest Color with guest Bryan Lowder, assistant editor of Slate’s Outward blog. Next, the critics talk about The Returned, a macabre French TV show, now airing on the Sundance Network. And finally, the gabbers welcome Claudia Roth-Pierpont, New Yorker staff writer and author of Roth Unbound, a new book about Philip Roth’s prolific and polarizing career.
