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. This week, Slate’s movie critic Dana Stevens is joined by associate editor at Slate Marissa Martinelli and Slate’s new editorial intern Sofia Andrade to spoil In the Heights, the new film adaptation of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s play of the same name.

Set in Washington Heights, New York, a kaleidoscope of dreams rallies a vibrant and tight-knit community. At the intersection of it all is a magnetic bodega owner (Anthony Ramos) who dreams and sings about a better life.

Note: As the title indicates, this podcast contains spoilers galore.
