There's no bigger sin in pop culture right now than spoiling details of a mega-popular movie or TV show before someone else can see it.  Reports have come out about people being physically assaulted after giving away details of a major Hollywood blockbuster.  Yet as recently as 30 years ago the concept of spoiling something wasn't a concern for most people.

In this episode, Andy Farnsworth and guest host KellieAnn Halvorsen are joined by Richard V. Greene, philosophy professor and author of Spoiler Alert! (It's a Book About the Philosophy of Spoilers) to talk about how this spoiler culture came to be, why we fear spoilers, what things *can't* be spoiled, and debate some of the biggest spoilers in movie history.

(WARNING:  This podcast episode contains spoilers!)
