Pop Culture Lists, Movie Sequels and Lady Gaga

December 16th, 2009

Episode 38 of 577 episodes

This week on Culturetopia: We kicked off with a discussion of the new book of lists from the A.V. Club, which managed to meander back to nervous uncertainty about best-of lists. We also hear Bob Mondello talk about the decade's trend of sequels, and interview with Toni Morrison talk about a book reissue project. Then we wrap up with a look at the uncertain future of professional recording studios, and the eternal question: just how fascinating is Lady Gaga?
